“In rural 19th-century France, a mysterious, possibly supernatural menace threatens a small village. John McBride, a pathologist, comes to town to investigate the danger — and exorcise some of his own demons in the process.”

Director: Sean Ellis
Writer: Sean Ellis
Staring: Boyd Holbrook, Kelly Reilly, Alistair Petrie, Roxane Duran
Release Date: February 18, 2022

I love the feel of this trailer. The Cursed gives me The Witch (2015) tingles. It is dark, it is dreary and almost promises to have a depressing and bloody ending.

Alright, we have a creepy as scarecrow. Somehow I think The Cursed will be scarier than Jeepers Creepers (2001).

“We will all pay for the sins of our elders”

Alright, who committed some terribly atrocities that have resulted in them being cursed by the victims of said malevolence?

John McBride is told that a certain house has called for aid in the search for their lost son. It is heavily hinted that this child’s disappearance is connected to a wider mystery McBride is intrigued in. My guess is that it has to do with vampirism.

This trailer has an invisible menace crawling through the weeds to attack a women. It has a group of people traversing through a foggy forest where surely nothing evil will happen at all. The quick flash to the metallic fangs is interesting because these this may be more like a person acting insane rather than an actual vampire.

The muskets cocking is just right up my alley. The gothic horror vibes with antique looks and strategies just puts me in your happy place.

What the hell is this scarecrow man putting his arms around two young women? What the fuck is this creepiness.

There are going to be a lot of dead bodies.

The high-pitched tone around halfway through the trailer reminds me of a bats traveling with their ears and using sonar. Maybe it is just because I want to abide by this vampire thing.

The Cursed has an entire vibe going about it. I will need to watch it with all the shades down in my apartment so I can easily see all the shadows, but it will be totally worth it.

Boyd Holbrook is the lead role in The Cursed, and I need to get back invested in this guy’s career. He was excellent in Logan (2017), but then had his next major motion picture be The Predator (2018), which was simply not good. I think he as major potential as a B-rate movie star, like the Jason Statham type.

The Cursed is directed by Sean Ellis, and I have not seen any of his work. He was nominated for Best Short Film, Live Action back in 2006 with Cashback. The poster is provocative, to say the least. He seems to be on the rise in terms of recognition at various film festivals. This movie may be his breakout.

The Cursed is released on February 18, 2022.
