Have you heard about Antrum, the proclaimed deadliest film ever made.
Have you at any point watched a film so frightening you didn’t make it to the end, proclaiming that it is so terrifying that it scared you almost to death?
Most likely, yes. However, have you at any point watched a ‘horror’ movie that is actually ‘the deadliest film at any point made’ and which till date have cost the lives of 86 individuals who set out to watch it?
No, neither have I. What’s more, neither have you, presumably, in light of the fact that Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made might be appearing in cinemas this year – in Japan. Be that as it may, you can still watch it on Amazon prime.
Now before curiosity drives you to check it out, allow me to make a disclaimer; Antrum is a fictional film that is made to look like a documentary.
Antrum: Official Trailer
Basically, the movie is so cursed that viewers are warned about watching it. It is a cursed movie because of its murderous past- 56 people died while watching it in the first cinema, and the second screening also ended up killing 30 people when the building exploded.
Its a movie by David Amito and Micheal Laicini.
The film begins in the typical documentary style, with viewers learning more about its history for the first time. The audience also gets to understand that the film might be responsible for killing its viewers in a ring-like kind of way, with an ominous screen waring that “Antrum isn’t safe.”
The producers then builds up tension about how cursed the film is, and I can imagine that being shown the movie in its glory is terrifying. I think that’s the reason behind the thinking of the producers.
The movie is about a young boy and girl who enter a forest to dig a hole to hell after their pet dog was put down. They decided to dig to hell to retrieve the animal’s soul.
Its official synopsis reads:
A young boy and girl enter the forest to dig a hole to hell. Said to be a cursed film from the late 1970s, Antrum examines the horrifying power of storytelling.
It sounds so unreal. Well, we have Eric Thirteen to thank, the horror director became aware of the movie at the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival in late 2018 and was determined to put it out to a broader audience.
The director struck a deal with Uncork’d Entertainment for Antrum to be screened throughout 2020 in cinemas across Japan, where the film has attracted attention on social media.
So there you have it, a film so terrifying it might curse you. Are you willing to give it a try?
