Wednesday, October 12, 2022 | Exclusives, News


There’s some very wicked witchcraft going on in this film.

THE ACCURSED, directed by Kevin Lewis (WILLY’S WONDERLAND), is coming to theaters and VOD this Friday, October 14 from Screen Media. Scripted by Rob Kennedy (MIDNIGHT MAN), it stars Mena Suvari, Sarah Grey, Meg Foster (THEY LIVE), Sarah Dumont and Alexis Knapp. The synopsis: “Elly [Grey] is asked by a family friend [Suvari] to spend a few days looking after an elderly woman [Foster] living in a remote cabin. She readily agrees thinking a short trip to the woods will be a nice escape. The cabin turns out to be anything but relaxing as Elly begins hallucinating in ways that blur reality with her dreams. As the visions take over, Elly realizes that she was lured there by a demonic presence hiding inside of the woman just waiting to break free.”
