CURSED FILMS is a five-part documentary series, which 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 rumoured use of human skeletons on the set of Poltergeist, these stories are legendary amongst film fans and filmmakers alike. But where does the truth lie? A SHUDDER ORIGINAL SERIES
1. The Exorcist
The release of The Exorcist was surrounded by controversy, as reports of fainting theatre-goers and mysterious on-set accidents raised questions as to whether or not the film itself was evil.
2. The Omen
A series of unfortunate events plague the cast and crew during the making of The Omen, raising concerns that the film might be cursed by the devil himself.
A series of untimely deaths connected to the making of the Poltergeist films inspire rumours that the production was cursed. Supernatural suspicions are stoked by rumours that real human skeletons were used during the making of the film.
4. The Crow
Years after Bruce Lee’s mysterious death is attributed to the “Lee Family Curse”, his son Brandon’s life was cut short due to a tragic on-set accident during the making of The Crow.
I guess my previous review had a bit too much reality in it, someone must’ve complained & got it removed. No worries. My takeaway after watching all the episodes: at what cost are we to be entertained, when real lives are damaged or destroyed. Case in point, Episode 5. Otherwise, I enjoyed the series for telling the truths of these films, very educational.
👍👍👍Great docu-series ..looking forward to a season 2
I am so happy this exists... SO GOOD. I was traumatized by the accident scene from twilight zone though (I actually didn't know this one so it was a surprise) so just beware! I screamed and shed a tear !
