We have exciting new details about the upcoming werewolf gothic horror film, THE CURSED, formerly titled Eight For Silver. The film will be released by LD Entertainment on February 18, 2022. Keep reading for more details about this highly-anticipated film down below.
The film had its world premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.
The film is written, directed, produced, and shot by Sean Ellis (Anthropoid, The Broken). The cast includes Boyd Holbrook, Kelly Reilly, Alistair Petrie, Roxane Duran, and Nigel Betts.
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.
The film has received a brand new score, new edit, and new effects since its debut at Sundance. “Sundance is always an incredible place to showcase your work,” Ellis said in a statement. “In the time that has followed that valuable experience, we took the opportunity to invigorate the film with an updated score by Lorne Balfe; we changed much of the CGI and decided to put back much of the original in-camera effects. We also elevated elements of the story that pay tribute to the incredible multitude of layers that live within the horror genre.”
“We set out to make a genre film with an incredibly talented filmmaker,” LD’s Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon said in a statement. “Sean Ellis has created a story that is so much more than that: it’s timely, scary as hell, and most importantly unique. We are thrilled for people to finally see Sean’s striking vision on the big screen.”
