Plot Synopsis

Written, directed and edited by Jay Cheel, CURSED FILMS is a half-hour documentary series that 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 rumored use of real human skeletons on the set of POLTERGEIST, these stories are legendary amongst film fans and filmmakers alike. CURSED FILMS reveals the events that haunted these productions through interviews with experts, witnesses and the cast, directors and producers who lived through the real-life events. Were these films really cursed, as many believe, or just the victims of bad luck and bizarre circumstances? Interviewees include: Lance Anderson; Hector Avalos; Bridget Baiss; Nate Bales; Vincent Bauhaus; Stefano Beninati; Michael Berryman; Linda Blair; Tony Burke; Sean Clark; Michael Correll; Douglas Cowan; Eileen Dietz; Richard Donner; Stephen Farber; Colin Geddes; Matt Gourley; Sarah Graff; Kane Hodder; Robert Hofler; Richard Holloman; Mitch Horowitz; Matthew Hutson; Lloyd Kaufman; E.A. Koetting; Barton Lane; Max MacDonald; Joseph Mazur; Matt Miller; Jeff Most; Mace Neufeld; Phil Nobile Jr.; Craig Reardon; Clay Routledge; Richard Sawyer; Gary Sherman; Michael Shermer; Ryan Turek; April Wolfe. In the first of five installments, CURSED FILMS focuses on THE EXORCIST, exploring how the release of the movie was surrounded by controversy, with reports of fainting theater-goers. Plus, mysterious on-set accidents raised questions as to whether or not the film itself was evil.
