Imagine if the body-possessing effects of the Naturan Demanto from The Evil Dead were unleashed inside the Slaughtered Lamb pub from An American Werewolf in London, and you'll start to get an idea of what to expect from the short film Cursed Words. Written and directed by Joe and Lloyd Stas, the duo behind The Worst Planet on Earth (which was executive produced by Sam Raimi and was previously featured in our Daily Dead Salutes Your Shorts feature), Cursed Words is now available to watch online, and you can enjoy it right here on Daily Dead, along with some intriguing behind-the-scenes photos from the making of the film!
