Since this will likely be the last short round of 2019, I thought we’d go out with this gnarly throwback written and directed by Joe & Lloyd Stas. The film plays like a love letter to the glory (and gory) days of old school horror where exposition took a back seat and practical, gooey effects were front and center. There’s so much carnage here that I had to go back and watch it again just to fully appreciate all of the mangled body parts and soul-stealing shenanigans going on. Cursed Words is a good time if you’re into that kind of stuff anyway.
In a small British pub, all hell breaks loose when a man reads three words from a mysterious, bloodstained letter.
