The director of Nicolas Cage’s Willy’s Wonderland, Kevin Lewis, is making a new horror movie called The Accursed, and a trailer has been released for it. The movie stars Mena Suvari and it comes with the tagline “Hell Lives Here.” As you’ll see, it looks like a very sinister and creepy terrifying thriller.
In the movie: “Elly (Sarah Grey) is asked by a family friend (Mena Suvari) to spend a few days looking after an elderly woman (Meg Foster) living in a remote cabin. She readily agrees thinking a short trip to the woods will be a nice escape. The cabin turns out to be anything but relaxing as Elly begins hallucinating in ways that blur reality with her dreams. As the visions take over, Elly realizes that she was lured there by a demonic presence hiding inside of the woman just waiting to break free.”
Kevin Lewis said in a statement to Bloody-Disgusting: “Coming off the amazing insanity that was Willy’s Wonderland (how do you top a non-verbal Cage performance?), I wanted to do something very different, with much more gravity. This movie is really about how the sins of the mothers are re-visited upon their daughters, which also gave me the opportunity to work with an incredible all-female cast.
“This film is inspired by great true horror gems like Rosemary’s Baby, The Omen, and The Changeling. Where Willy’s Wonderland was a salute to the 80s, this is my love letter to vintage horror from the 70s.”
The Accursed is set for release in theaters and on various VOD platforms on October 14th.
