In search of an unclaimed prize of $ 125,000, a broke dropout decides to play an obscure 1980s survival computer game. But the game curses her and she is faced with dangerous choices and warping challenges. reality. After a series of terrifying and unexpected moments, she realizes that she is no longer playing for money but for her life.
Anton will oversee global sales and present the project to buyers at the upcoming Cannes Virtual Market later this month, in association with Endeavor Content which co-represents the United States.
“Toby is a visionary in the horror space with an innate genius for both the original storytelling and the austere, eerie palaces he creates onscreen,” Zois said. “Simon, Toby and Matt have worked to create something uniquely exciting for horror fans.”
Wilkinson of Stigma Films added, “Incredibly excited to be working on such an original and terrifying concept as CURSES> R – take modern horror and twist it to pit our hero against 80s nostalgia. Simon, Toby and I enjoyed working with Anton to bring this idea to the screen.
