Home care becomes horrific in this October release.

Screen Media brings THE ACCURSED to theaters and VOD October 14. Directed by Kevin Lewis (WILLY’S WONDERLAND) from a screenplay 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.”
