More cursed films are coming our way...
...Shudder has announced that they have picked up a season 2 order of the hit docu-series Cursed Films, written, directed and executive produced by Jay Cheel (How to Build a TIme Machine).
For those that missed it, Cursed Films explores the facts and legends around iconic films and franchises whose casts and crews have been struck by misfortune and tragedy. The first season examined The Omen, Poltergeist, The Exorcist, The Crow and Twilight Zone: The Movie.
Said Cheel, “Filming season one of 'Cursed Films' was an amazing experience, so I’m thrilled to have the chance to interview a new group of talented filmmakers and film critics while exploring the stories behind five more legendarily ill-fated film productions. This time around we’ll be heading outside of North America for a few episodes, which will not only widen the scope of the series but offer an exciting collection of stories connected to a diverse group of movies."
Season two of Cursed Films will be written, directed and edited by Jay Cheel and executive produced by Jonas Prupas and Courtney Dobbins from Muse Entertainment, along with Jay Cheel and Brian Robertson from Low End.
Season two is now in production and set to premiere in 2021 and will turn its focus to a new group of “cursed” films whose titles will be revealed at a later date.
