Opportunities for commercialization

The wonder of software

The M3GAN software is a marvel. Initially, the only glitches should alarm everyone more than they do, but they are only minor.

Technologically dependent

Cady even becomes a bit of a monster when she is deprived of M3GAN's company, an intelligent commentary on the dangers of relying on technology as a babysitter.

Communicates effectively

'M3GAN' manages to convey requisite tension and horror within its modest means and the confines of a PG-13 rating while still being a warning and a crowd-pleaser at the same time.

The horror genre has endured

The horror genre has remained steady since the pandemic started, and 'M3GAN' may join that list. If that's the case, it won't be the last Blumhouse movie released.
