Cursed Films Trailer: Jay’s Upcoming Documentary Series on Shudder


Shudder just released the trailer for Jay’s upcoming documentary series Cursed Films, which will be premiering at SXSW next month before streaming on Shudder a few weeks later. This is a five-part series that explores a handful of Hollywood films that are notorious for having been cursed in some way including Poltergeist, The Omen, The Exorcist, The Crow and Twilight Zone: The Movie. With an interesting cast of interview subjects that includes Ryan Turek, Richard Donner, Linda Blair, Lloyd Kaufman, Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman and Matt Gourley, the series covers a lot of ground by examining the mystique surrounding certain horror movies as well as the psychology of conspiracy theories and magical thinking. The first episode of Cursed Films premieres on Shudder on April 2nd while the rest of the episodes will roll out over the next two weeks; check out the trailer after the jump and if you like what you see, pass it on!
