Cursed Films season 2 will cover Rosemary’s Baby, The Wizard of Oz, & more

During the recent Television Critics Association winter virtual press day for AMC Networks, it was confirmed that a second season of the documentary series Cursed Films will be coming to the Shudder streaming service on April 7th – and the titles of the five films that will be covered in Cursed Films season 2 were also revealed! Over the course of the season’s episodes, we’ll be hearing stories of the curses that supposedly surround the Roman Polanski film Rosemary’s Baby, Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker, Wes Craven’s The Serpent and the Rainbow, Ruggero Deodato’s Cannibal Holocaust, and the 1939 musical version of The Wizard of Oz, directed by Victor Fleming.

Physical media copies of the first season of Cursed Films can be purchased at at THIS LINK. The purpose of the show is to

explore 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. But where does the truth lie? Cursed Films reveals the events that haunted these productions through interviews with experts, witnesses and the cast, directors and producers who lived through the real-life events. Were these films really cursed, as many believe, or just the victims of bad luck and bizarre circumstances? 

The series is written and directed by Jay Cheel. The first season covered Poltergeist, The Crow, Twilight Zone: The Movie, The Exorcist, and The Omen. I liked three of those five episodes, the ones about the Poltergeist franchise and the tragic deaths on the set of The Crow and Twilight Zone. The other two lost me when their focus drifted from the movies, bringing in real exorcists and black magic practitioners. 

Are you ready for Cursed Films season 2?
