  • If you need to see the worms, sores and nasty oozing glop for yourself, they're at the Criterion and other movie houses.

  • "The Curse" works in spite of its troubles, a creeping paranoia enveloping Zack and younger sister Amy as the rest of their family take monstrous turns.

    "The Curse" an entertaining, atmospheric and creepy sci-fi horror thriller with decent special effects and disgusting moments. Gross b-movie from producer Lucio Fulci that's still worth watching.

    This movie starts out kind of boring, but it gets better as it goes on. It's especially exciting at the climax. It might seem weird or confusing at times, but it's pretty good in the end.

    This sci-fi horror film adapting H.P. Lovecraft's short story "The Colour Out of Space" freaked me out and it's pretty creepy. There were parts where you could tell it was fake, then other times things looked real. Good performances by most of the cast. Paces moves along. Some nice shots of the Tennessee landscape. Good make-up and gross out effects. Director David Keith loosely not only vividly evokes a thick and pungent down-home hillbilly atmosphere, but also does an expert job of creating and sustaining a spooky and unnerving tone.

    As a very loose adaption of Lovecraft's short story "The Colour Out of Space', it sucks. As a low budget 80's sci-fi/horror hybrid, it sucks. Bottom line: it sucks. And it's boring. I'l stick with the completely unrelated and very underrated sequel, Curse II: The Bite.
