Give Me The Creeps: The Curse (1987)

You would think that being a farmer would have it’s advantages… being able to eat corn whenever you want or ride a tractor at night just for the fuck of it.  But farming isn’t all unlimited delicious fruit and games.  Sometimes, if you’re not careful – a storm will come and unleash a suspicious glowing force onto your farm and your family.  And then you’ll turn into a bunch of pus-faced monsters and that’s never good.  Oh – and your fruit and vegetables will have worms in them too.  Bummer!


I have to give it up to the 1987 underrated gem, The Curse.  I was pretty confident that I would never be creeped out by a horror movie that took place on a farm.  But dammit if this didn’t give me the creeps as a kid and still does today.  Thanks to The Curse, I always hesitate slightly before biting into an apple.  Fun fact btw:  I actually did bite into an apple when I was younger and it was full of worms.  That was before this movie, but maybe it was a prophecy that I would some day see a movie that would make me revisit my fear of wormy apples.  Whatever the case, The Curse is definitely one of those little horror movies that has some big creepy moments.  And it has John Schneider from The Dukes Of Hazzard to boot!  Check out the clip below to see some of the aforementioned creepiness:
