Most of us love watching horror films that can scare us and give us the creeps. And, since we all are sitting at home, here’s a recommendation for you.
There’s a horror film doing rounds on the Internet, all over social media that is allegedly cursed and therefore, even dangerous to watch.
The name of the film is ‘Antrum’ and it was initially released in the year 1979, but then later released in 2018. But, this film recently gained a lot of popularity and has become the talk of the town amongst Tiktok users, YouTubers, and even Reddit users.
So before we get into more details, let me just give you a little gist of the ‘deadly’ film and why is it known to be ‘cursed’.
The film follows the found footage format of the classics like The Blair Witch Project. It tells the story of a young brother and sister who are devastated by the loss of their beloved dog. So these kids go to their backyard and dig a hole all the way to hell to bring back its spirit. This raises a number of questions, but we are fixated on quite why they decided the poor puppet has gone down to hell rather than up to heaven? Seems a tad bit harsh.
The film starts in a classic mockumentary fashion, revealing all the terrible things that have happened since it was made in the 1970s and warning audiences they are at risk if they keep watching.
So, the reason why this film is said to be ‘cursed’ is that it’s responsible for many deaths. Everyone who watched this movie died mysteriously. In 1988, a movie theatre in Budapest that was screening the film burnt to the ground, killing the 56 people who were in attendance.
United Kingdom horror fans may have to wait for a little before they risk demonic dalliances, however. The film is currently available to view on Amazon Prime – but only in the United States of America. But maybe if you dig a little deeper, you may find it somewhere. Also, I read this on one of the slides about this movie, it said ‘You don’t watch the film, the film watches you’. Didn’t mean to creep you out but if you got the guts, go for it, have fun!
