"You will all pay for the sins made by our elders." LD Entertainment has unveiled an official trailer for the film The Cursed, which is the new titled for the horror thriller called Eight for Silver. This premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival under the Eight for Silver titled, received mixed reviews with some bits of praise. In rural 19th-century France, a mysterious, possibly supernatural menace threatens a small village. John McBride, a pathologist, comes to town to investigate -- and exorcise some of his own demons in the process. This is a werewolf film, which isn't so much of a spoiler, because it's a "reimagining" meaning the mythology is not what you're expecting. You'll have to watch to find out what that means! Starring Boyd Holbrook, with Kelly Reilly, Alistair Petrie, Roxane Duran, Nigel Betts, Stuart Bowman, Simon Kunz, and Amelia Crouch. I caught this last year and it's solid, not so amazing, but good for horror fans.
Here's the official US trailer (+ new poster) for Sean Ellis' The Cursed, direct from YouTube:
In the late 1800s, a man arrives in a remote country village to investigate an attack by a wild animal but discovers a much deeper, sinister force that has the manor and its townspeople in its grip. A reimagining of the werewolf legend for a modern-day audience. The Cursed, formerly known as Eight for Silver, is both written and directed by British writer / filmmaker Sean Ellis, director of the films Cashback, The Broken, Metro Manila, and Anthropoid previously, as well as a few shorts. Produced by Sean Ellis, Pete Shilaimon, and Mickey Liddell. This initially premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival last year. LD Ent. will debut Ellis' The Cursed in theaters nationwide starting February 18th, 2022 this winter. Look any good or not?
