Sink your teeth into the trailer for the highly-anticipated Gothic horror-thriller The Cursed, originally titled Eight for Silver. The killer trailer teases a dark and violent film filled with tension and horrors.


Written and directed by Sean Ellis, the film stars Boyd Holbrook(The Sandman, The Fugitive, Logan), Kelly Reilly (“Yellowstone,” “True Detective”), and Alistair Petrie (“Sex Education,” Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Night Manager) and is a reimagining of the werewolf legend for a modern-day audience.


Set ”In the late 1800s, a once-peaceful remote country village is under attack—but by who or what, no one knows. Villagers spread rumors of a cursed land, supernatural forces, and even demonic creatures, as the disappearances and killings continue. Pathologist John McBride arrives to investigate the danger, only to discover something much deeper and more sinister than he ever could have imagined.”


The film is produced by Ellis, Mickey Liddell, and Pete Shilaimon, and is executive produced by Alison Semenzaand and Jacob Yakob.


“Sundance is always an incredible place to showcase your work. In the time that has followed that valuable experience, we took the opportunity to invigorate the film with an updated score by Lorne Balfe; we changed much of the CGI and decided to put back much of the original in-camera effects. We also elevated elements of the story that pay tribute to the incredible multitude of layers that live within the horror genre.” LD’s Mickey Liddelland Pete Shilaimonsaid, “We set out to make a genre film with an incredibly talented filmmaker. Sean Ellis has created a story that is so much more than that: it’s timely, scary as hell, and most importantly unique. We are thrilled for people to finally see Sean’s striking vision on the big screen.



Sean Ellis is an Oscar and BAFTA-nominated director and photographer. His films include Metro Manila which won three British Independent Film Awards (Best Independent British Film, Director, Best Achievement in Production) and the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, Cashback which won the C.I.C.A.E.
