Cursed Films

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 real human skeletons on the set of Poltergeist, these stories are legendary amongst film fans and filmmakers alike. But where does the truth lie?

This Episodic Premiere screening of Cursed Films will feature the Pilot and Episode 2 followed by an extended Q&A with select cast and crew.
