Werewolf Gothic Horror THE CURSED Releases Trailer

The trailer for The Cursed has finally released online today, after screening in cinemas ahead of this year's ScreamThe gothic thriller-horror will itself release in cinemas on February 18th, advertising itself as a reimagining of the werewolf legend for a modern-day audience. Set in the late 1800s in rural France, The Cursed sees John McBride, a pathologist, arrive in a remote country village to investigate a wild animal attack, but instead discovers a much greater and more sinister force that has the townspeople in its grip.

The Cursed by Sean Ellis, formerly Eight for Silver

The film, written and directed by Sean Ellis (Anthropoid, Metro Manila), stars Boyd Holbrook (upcoming series The Sandman, Logan, The Predator), Kelly Reilly (Britannia, Eden Lake) and Alistair Petrie (Rogue One, Hellboy). It previously premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival under the title of Eight for Silver. 

For those who caught it at the festival however, don't expect the exact same screening; Ellis commented that “Sundance is always an incredible place to showcase your work. 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.”
