    With all the mixed reviews for this movie, I have a question: Does anyone mind if I try to UNMIX them by tossing in my own two cents? No? Alrighty, then. I think The Curse is an awesome movie inspired by a story from master of the macabre H.P. Lovecraft. If I stopped to think about it, I might call it one of the best horror flicks of the 80s, along with its first sequel Curse II: The Bite. The acting is good, despite the fact that no one can top Wil Wheaton in this movie. The plot is cool: A crashed meteorite becomes the ultimate curse for a boy and his family, as its substance comtaminates the water, causes the fruits and veggies to grow at a seemingly miraculous rate, and mutates the farm animals, driving some into a deadly frenzy. When the same terrifying thing starts to happen to members of the household, driving them murderously insane, the boy knows his family is nightmarish trouble. The film is stylishly directed, has some wonderfully slimy and gory special effects, and it was made on a small enough budget to satisfy not only me, but anyone enjoys a low budget spookfest. Enjoy!

    Horrendous supernatural creepfest is, in my opinion, among the scariest 80s horror films!
