By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

Did you watch the new Scream? Well, that isn’t what we are going to talk about today. Before the feature film, there was a trailer for The Cursed. Previously called Eight for Silver that made the indie circuit last year.

The Cursed is a 19th-century period horror in which a werewolf terrorizes a small town in France. John McBride (Boyd Holbrook), a pathologist assigned to determine if the body of a 14-year-old boy found in the woods is the work of a man or a beast. McBride is then welcomed as a guest into the family home of a local wealthy landowner, Seamus Laurent (Alistair Petrie), and his wife Isabelle (Kelly Reilly), who share that their own son, a friend of the victim, has been missing for two weeks. Distraught and determined to keep her daughter safe, Isabelle finds comfort in the arrival of John while he is forced to confront the horrors of his own dark past.”

LD Entertainment (The Collector) was behind the film and after a year on the market, it appears that the company will be self-distributing the film this coming February under the much more palatable title The Cursed. Director and writer Sean Ellis has promised a gloomy, dark magic, werewolf period piece that unfolds its mystery with patient confidence.
