From the lethal helicopter accident on the set of The Twilight Zone: The Movie to rumors of real human remains in Poltergeist, many iconic horror films have had alleged “curses” attached to them over the years.
Shudder goes behind the scenes of these famously troubled productions in its five-part docuseries, Cursed Films, which premieres this April. The series features interviews from people like The Omen director Richard Donner, The Exorcist star Linda Blair and Troma Entertainment co-founder Lloyd Kaufman as they explore the myths and legends of five big-screen projects.
Cursed Films kicks off with The Exorcist on April 2. Poltergeist and The Omen will then be profiled on April 9, followed by the final episode on April 16 that covers The Twilight Zone: The Movie and The Crow. Check out the key art below:
