CURSED FILMS is a five-part documentary series that explores the myths and legends behind some of Hollywood’s notoriously “cursed” horror film productions. From plane accidents and bombings during the making of The Omen, to the rumored use of real human skeletons on the set of Poltergeist, these stories are legendary amongst film fans and filmmakers alike. Were these films really cursed, as many believe, or just the victims of bad luck and bizarre circumstances?
Bonus features on the DVD and Blu-ray include:
· Director’s Audio Commentary for All 5 Episodes
CURSED FILMS releases on Digital HD, DVD, and Blu-ray on August 18, 2020. To learn more on the documentary series, check out our review here.
