Netflix Grabs World Rights To Horror Film ‘CURS>R’

The horror hits just keep on coming for Netflix, as the streamer this week snagged the worldwide rights to CURS>R from the Cannes virtual market.

The movie–which reportedly cost Netflix in the high seven figures–boasts an impressive ensemble cast, including horror legend Robert Englund, as reported by Deadline.

The film–which recently wrapped production in the UK–also features Asa Butterfield (Sex Education), Iola Evans (The 100), Eddie Marsan (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), Kate Fleetwood (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows), Ryan Gage (The Hobbit), Angela Griffin (Last Chance Harvey) and Joe Bolland (The Trial of Christine Keeler).

The movie follows a broke college dropout (Evans) “who decides to play an obscure, 1980s survival computer game in pursuit of an unclaimed $125,000 prize,” according to the official synopsis.

But the game curses her, and she’s faced with “dangerous choices and reality-warping challenges. After a series of terrifying moments, she realizes she’s no longer playing for the money–but for her life.”

Toby Meakins is making his directorial debut, working from a screenplay by Simon Allen. Producers include Sebastien Raybaud, John Zois and Matthew James Wilkinson. Nick Angel and Liza Glucoft act as executive producers.

No debut date on Netflix has yet been announced, so keep reading Horror News Network for the latest on CURS>R.
