A great film of evil metamorphosis
28 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

What suprises me when reading these comments is the wide array of differing opinions. Either you hated it or you loved it. I for one, loved it. I watched it when I was in junior high and it freaked me out. Every piece of fruit I ate for weeks had to be cut, and if I cut it, I stood as far back as possible. My brother has since bought the movie and whenever we make it out to see eachother that movie comes along. It doesn't quite freak me out the way it used to, but it still gets to me. Its a great film of metamorphosis, a type of film too under-produced. If you found this film scary I would guess you found other movies of metamorphosis scary, such as The Fly or Leviathan. This movie will never win an oscar, but its got something indescribable and disturbing. As a huge horror film fanatic, I would list The Curse on my top 3.
