Trevor and Holly are enjoying their honeymoon. A tarot reader tells Holly she is pregnant and that her unborn baby is in danger. When Holly starts to act violently, they discover secrets about her past, and a curse that could endanger not just the baby but their own lives.
Don't bother !!! The soundtrack was so poor I couldn't understand half of what was being said. Then just as it finally builds up to the exorcism it cuts scenes with a totally ridiculous ending !! I'm still sitting here baffled to what its all really about. Waste your cash if you want, but don't pay more than 50p because it sure isn't worth it.
The US title, "Devil Incarnate" and DVD cover are misleading. The UK title is "Cursed" which is keeping to the film. The movie opens with narration during the credits. A curse is placed on a family line. They would be infertile unless they sacrificed or "cut out a child." We then see a bunch of hand held camera shots along with normal filming. Trevor (Rod Luzzi) and Holly (Graci Carli) are newlyweds traveling in Florida filming their honeymoon. Through a series of circumstances Holly meets a woman fortune teller (Barbara Van Fleet) that sends her screaming and then discovers she is pregnant. They move into his parent's house, which they gave them as a gift.
Soon weird things happen and Holly's behavior becomes erratic. Marissa, (Emily Rogers) is Trevor's highs school lesbian semi-goth sister who has a thing for Holly as well as a snoop who investigates her past.
The film offers nothing new and exciting to the evil baby films. The acting was on par for a "B" horror film. It had potential, but didn't capitalize on it. No special effect scenes. Nothing that seems supernatural. Let's keep it in budget.
A so-so rental for the Cassadaga crowd.
Parental Guide: F-bomb. One sex scene. Near shower nudity.
I enjoyed this film.... Horror films or even scary films are really hard to impress anyone and that includes me. If I hear a film will scare me, then Im preparing for it , thus it rarely does.
I must admit when I thought the film would be a ‘found footage’ project, I was a little concerned. The ‘genre’ of found footage is approaching its end, but Cursed is certainly not the climax. It wonderfully mixes the found footage and actual movie footage wonderfully, bridging the gaps and taking us seamlessly through the journey of Marissa, Trevor and Holly as strange things happen and people tip toe the balance of whats acceptable and what is just plain crazy. Whilst Trevor (played by Rod Luzzi) and Holly (played by Graci Carli) are lined up to be the main characters in ‘Cursed’ for me the breakout performance was by Marissa (played by Emily Rogers), the younger sister of Trevor. This her second only feature role, indicates that Emily has got a fantastic acting future ahead of her, Emily Rogers is definitely one to keep an eye out for. Where ‘Cursed’ also massively succeeds in my opinion is how you choose to view the film. You can choose to watch the film as a supernatural based horror film, or and this is how I chose to view the film. A reality based story which shows us the descent into madness by one of its characters. Whichever way you decide to think of the film, it works.
