Curse, The (1987, USA) C-92m. SCOPE * D: David Keith. Starring Wil Wheaton, Claude Akins, Malcolm Danare, Cooper Huckabee, John Schneider, Amy Wheaton, Steve Carlisle. A meteorite crashes into ultra-religious farmer Akins yard and soon changes start to appear. First the fruits, then the animals, and ultimately everything that has come in touch with the contaminated water. Tired horror film looks more expensive than others, but story is a yawn and fails to create interest. Ovidio G. Assonitis produced, with Lucio Fulci (also effects designer) in tow. Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story. Followed by two sequels. Also known as THE FARM, THE WELL.
