“Willy’s Wonderland” helmer Kevin Lewis has been set to direct the horror tale “The Accursed” which has been described as “if Sam Raimi and Dario Argento had a love child and James Wan was its uncle.”
Sarah Grey stars as Elly, a young nurse whose estranged mother dies by suicide. Consumed by guilt, she accepts work from Alma (Mena Suvari) as a temporary caregiver to look after the comatose Ms. Ambrose (Meg Foster) in her isolated cabin.
But Alma has nefarious plans for Elly and she soon is confronted with Mary Lynn (Alexis Knapp), a witch hunter hellbent on lifting the demonic curse that has plagued her family for generations.
Elly learns that Ms. Ambrose has a history in the black arts, as well as a mysterious connection to her late mother. As she tries to unlock the truth with her friend Beth (Sarah Dumont), it becomes all too clear that Elly was lured to the cabin under false pretences.
Much of the behind-the-scenes team from “Willy’s Wonderland,” a Nic Cage-led PVOD hit earlier this year, will also reunite on this film. Rob Kennedy (“Midnight Man”) penned the script while Marcus Englefield and George Lee produce.
