Cursed Films is a five-part documentary series which explores the myths and legends behind some of Hollywood’s notoriously “cursed” horror film productions.If you've been paying attention over the years, you'll know that this is just the sort of thing that tickles my fancy, serving as the perfect fodder for my over-stimulated gamer brain that sees potential plot hooks round every corner.
From plane accidents and bombings during the making of The Omen, to the rumoured 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?
Sadly, this is a Shudder show and I ain't paying for yet another streaming service, so I'll wait for Cursed Films to be given a wider audience.
Did you notice how all these films are horror films? Makes for great publicity, doesn't it?
