The “Cursed Films” documentary series will release on Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD on August 18th. Jay Cheel wrote and directed the docuseries, which features Phil Nobile Jr., Linda Blair, Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman, Mitch Horowitz, Ryan Turek, and Gary Sherman.

The official synopsis reads, “Cursed Films is a five-part documentary series which explores the myths and legends behind some of Hollywood’s notoriously “cursed” horror film productions. From plane accidents and bombings during the making of The Omen, to the rumored use of real human skeletons on the set of Poltergeist, these stories are legendary amongst film fans and filmmakers alike. Were these films really cursed, as many believe, or just the victims of bad luck and bizarre circumstances?”

You can watch the series with a Shudder subscription on Prime Video, or start a 7-day free trial and test it out that way. You can also go the Blu-ray or DVD route.
