Cursed

Cursed Part of the Voodoo Anthology

A Film by Thomas Schroeder | Written by Amanda Heady

Voodoo Digital Media is putting together a Horror Anthology. This film is a spec short used to raise funds for the feature film. Originally slated for production in Los Angeles the outrageous costs stifled creativity and Thomas Schroeder, production lead and concept creator, had to sideline the project. Now relocated to Phoenix, reasonable costs have reopened the door and the project is moving forward. Scheduled as an ongoing, multi-year effort if you don’t make it into this part of the anthology there’s a good chance you’ll be in the next. Please come to audition even if you are new to acting, being in front of the camera is your greatest opportunity to learn!

Summary:

Loosely based on the legend of La LLorona, “Cursed” is a tale revolving around a woman, “Rona” who falls in love with a man.  Their relationship was progressing nicely until the man expressed his desire to not have any children.  Scared her lover would find out she had a daughter, Rona disposes of her by drowning her in the lake only to be abandoned by her lover when he finds out.  This leads Rona to take her own life in a similar fashion.  Her ghost now searches for the man who left her and the child whose life she foolishly destroyed.  Those who get in her way or do not offer to help are often never seen again.

We will be filming over two nights split into two weekends.  Film one Friday night and then the following Friday night. If needed the following weekend will be used for pickups.

Our Cast

Amanda Heady

Rona

Heartsick lover who takes her daughter’s life to try to have the life she wants with her lover. He doesn’t see it that way and abandons her, leading her to take her own life. Miserable with what she’s done and furious with her lover, she haunts the lake she took her daughter’s life in and can be found trying to get a ride to the nearest courthouse. Legend has it that Rona will take the life of those who do not aid her in her search of her lost love.
