THE ACCURSED (2021) Reviews with trailer and release news



‘Family never forgets’
The Accursed is a 2021 supernatural horror film about an ancient family curse that is released thus causing more deaths. Also known as Severed Silence

Written and directed by Kathryn Michelle and Elizabeta Vidovic, both making their feature directorial debut. Produced by Mem Ferda, Kathryn Michelle, Elizabeta Vidovic and Izabela Vidovic.

The American production stars Izabela Vidovic, Goran Visnjic, Maiara Walsh, Yancy Butler, George Harrison Xanthis and Melora Walters.

Hana (Yancy Butler) spends twenty years suppressing a maleficent curse that was placed upon her bloodline, only to have a family member knowingly release it forcing her to kill or to be killed…


“There is definite potential in this movie, but it just feels flat and full of bad CGI. Often in areas where the story and simple practical effects could have done so much more. Except for the final moment of this horror movie, I never once felt the least bit of fear or dread. And I usually love movies about witches and witchcraft.” Heaven of Horror

“Michelle and Vidovic serve up a nice offering of intrigue and twists, but the family drama occasionally gets bogged down. There is plenty to like here, though, especially for viewers who love a good story of ghostly revenge, and the performances are highly impressive.” Horror Fuel

“Thankfully the last half hour of The Accursed does give us a few scares, but it’s not nearly enough to justify the previous hour. There needed to be a lot more going on besides the endless talk about twenty years ago […] There’s not even much in the way of effects to distract from that either, and what few we get is all CGI.” Voices from the Balcony
