Can a film be cursed? That seems to be the case with Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made and now it’s out on Digital and VOD from Uncork’d Entertainment.
Written and directed by Michael Laicini and David Amito, “Antrum was shot in the late 1970s, is said to be cursed. In 1988, a movie theatre in Budapest that was screening the film burnt to the ground, killing the 56 people who were in attendance. This incident follows the inexplicable deaths of a number of film festival programmers that had received Antrum as a submission and died shortly after watching it. These events have created a belief that watching Antrum will kill you. Else Films has successfully tracked down a sole copy of the film and packaged it for public release. As one programmer observed of Antrum, “You don’t watch the film, the film watches you.”
