Exciting werewolf horror film and Sundance 2021 selection The Cursed is set to be unleashed on February 18, 2022. Today we’ve got our claws on the trailer and official poster for the tense movie coming out via LD Entertainment.
Written and direct by Sean Ellis, The Cursed stars Boyd Holbrook (The Sandman, The Fugitive, Logan). It co-stars Kelly Reilly (Yellowstone, True Detective, Above Suspicion) and Alistair Petrie (Sex Education). Together they reimagine werewolf lore for a modern-day audience. Formerly titled Eight for Silver, the film premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.
Also, filmmaker Sean Ellis commented, “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.”
