‘The voodoo curse that won’t let them live… or die’

Gothic Harvest is a 2018 American supernatural horror feature film about a young woman who disappears during Mardi Gras and the race to find her before she falls victim to a sadistic Southern family.

Directed by actor Ashley Hamilton (making his directorial debut) from a screenplay written by Chris Kobin, the Align Entertainment production stars Lin Shaye, Bill Moseley, Sofia Mattsson, Tanyell Waivers and Hamilton himself.


The aristocratic, wealthy France-born Boudine family move to New Orleans in the mid-1800s to make their way in America. Then their beautiful youngest daughter cross paths with the fiancé of the legendary Queen of Louisiana Voodoo, Marie Laveau.

The couple has a baby and tries to keep it a secret, but Madame Laveau finds out and decides that the entire family deserves the focus of Laveau’s most destructive curse…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

“It has a dreamlike quality to it, full of delirious images and fragments of strong ideas but with little coherent sense of story. Whilst most of the performances work well enough, there are occasional moments of really bad acting or spectacularly cheesy dialogue that make it difficult to immerse oneself and take any of it seriously.” Eye for Film

“There’s nothing worthwhile going on here, and Mosely and Shaye are here for name purposes only. Nothing more. I can’t help but think that somewhere, buried deep within all this nonsense, is a real film with some good potential—something a healthy dose of (re)editing would bring out.” Killer Horror Critic


Gothic Harvest is released on digital on October 15th and DVD November 5th, 2019.
