Storyline

Alister believes death is in love with him. A simple smile from friend or stranger is all it takes to encourage death to kill. With his family deceased and a path of destruction behind him, Alister sits inside a mental institution, sworn to silence and separated from the rest of the world, haunted by his inability to escape death's preferential treatment. But when a beautiful psychologist arrives at the institution and starts offering him care, Alister braces himself for more killings. When none follow, he tries to figure out whether he truly is insane or if death has finally come to him in the form of a woman. Written by Keith Rommel

The Cursed Man - One of better horror films.
25 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Across the internet, the novel, The Cursed Man by Keith Rommel, is getting rave reviews by readers and critics alike for being a real hair raising experience.

It's the fictional story of Alister Kunkle committing himself to a mental hospital because everyone he comes in contact with dies within a day. Is he insane or is Death jealous of anyone who pays him any attention?

The trailers and previews of the movie are out and are like honey to bees when it comes to drawing in the horror movie genre fans. I gave it a solid 10 for the acting and production values. What makes it work is a fascinating story that keeps you on the edge of your seat not knowing what will happen next. Anyone who has read the book will be dieing to see the movie version. When the truth is finally revealed as to what made Alister into The Cursed Man, it literally makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

This is one film that is destined to become a cult classic. JD
