Long-lost 'cursed' film emerges 40 years on

An infamous cinematic project from the late 1970s has resurfaced and will soon be released to the public.
The concept of a 'cursed' movie has been explored in cinema before, most notably in 'The Ring' franchise which centers around a videotaped film that dooms anyone who watches it.

As it happens however, there exists a real-life film with a similar reputation - a cinematic work created in the late 1970s that was lost for years but that has finally resurfaced after a chance discovery.

Now a new release entitled 'Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made' aims to reveal this 'cursed' creation for the first time while also exploring the enigma surrounding its sinister reputation.

The film itself was rediscovered last year by writer/director/producer Eric Thirteen at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival. According to reports, strange images and symbols had seemingly been added to the original film during the years in which it was allegedly 'lost'.

"I think about it now almost like an old book of alchemy, or Lovecraft's Necronomicon," Thirteen told Forbes. "There's notes scrawled in the margins and every time the book is lost and recovered, there's new patchwork pieces added to it. By the time you find it, it has this history."

"That's really what Antrum is."

The film itself follows the story of a brother and sister who travel through the woods and attempt to dig all the way down to hell to rescue the soul of their recently-euthanized dog.

Like the videotape in The Ring movies, Antrum is said to result in the death of anyone who watches it. Viewers are even presented with a legal disclaimer before the film starts.

It seems unlikely however that anyone has actually died from watching it.

Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made is due to be released later this year in the US and will be released worldwide in 2020.

They used to do this sort of thing a lot when I was a kid. Movies advertised as soooo horrible that when you bought a ticket you were more or less signing a release of responsibility in case you had a heart attack. Almost always if you dared to go and watch you really WOULD die... of boredom. They weren't even bad in the good sort of way like the totally laughable Mystery Science Theater 3000 movies.

This is definitely another Blair Witch tactic to sell tickets (or DVDs).  It’s not an old movie, only filmed to look old. The kid in the movie is still very much a child not a grown adult.

Reminds me of this : https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cigarette_Burns Starring Norman Reedus  "He is hired by an old cinephile, Mr. Bellinger (Udo Kier) to find the only existing print of a rare 30-year-old movie titled, La Fin Absolue du Monde (French: The Absolute End of the World). The film supposedly has supernatural power to anyone who views it which led to a homicidal riot during its premiere at the Sitges Film Festival, after which it was destroyed."

That was my question. Dogs don't go to hell.
