THE CURSE - "A Tale Of Crops, Creatures And Carnage" (1987)

Welcome to the Independence Day edition of Weird Wednesday in The Dungeon!
Tonight's fiery display was made in 1987 and was called "The Curse!" It's loosely based on the brilliant H.P. Lovecraft's "The Colour Out of Space."

My adventure with "The Curse" was cursed from the start when the movie stopped playing with 19 minutes left to go. Finally, by using a different media player, I was able to also see the ending. The Director of the film is a man who is known more as an actor, the hard working David (Clown Hunt, Daredevil) Keith! David just finished one film, has one in post-production, and has one in pre-production!

Water! One of, if not the, most important element in our lives!

Without an ample supply of good clean water, as a society, we're screwed!

This family's water supply is about to become contaminated. They're screwed! 
The Father is Claude Akins. Claude only lived to be 67 but racked up 231 credits during that time that included two "Twilight Zone" episodes, "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street," and "The Little People." The oldest son is Malcom (Godzilla: The TV Series) Danare. Steve (The Mutilator) Davis is Mike, the hired hand. The Mother is Kathleen Jordon Gregory is her sole outing. The Daughter is Amy (Freaks and Geeks) Wheaton, and the brother is Amy's real-life brother Wil (Stand By Me, Toy Soldiers) Wheaton.

It has a great look to it, and I found "The Curse" to be vaguely interesting, but mostly neither fish nor flesh! Even though he only gets credits as Associate Producer, this movie has Lucio Fulci's signature written all over it.

Besides the whole water problem, the family has other difficulties! The husband is so religious, he only believes it's proper to have sex when the man institutes it. This leads his wife to be unfaithful, and you really can't blame her, until she gets caught!

As Creedence said, "It came outta the sky!"

They all feel lucky that this thing from space is not radioactive, but in reality, radioactivity would be much better than what they're going to end up with!

Looks like a giant bocce ball court!

The ball from space contaminates all the water on the farm. It kills the plants, but before they die, they produce large and succulent looking fruits and vegetables, but the insides are either rotten or full of blood or other oozing nasty shit!

The Doctor is too busy to get too involved until it's too late! His wife keeps him kind of busy. The Doctor is Cooper (Pee-Wee's Big Holiday) Huckabee, and his gorgeous wife is Miss Cowboy USA 1987, Hope North!

Something gross, and an apology to all our vegetarian friends!

Beautiful bountiful crop of apples this year!

I didn't ask for any protein with my fruit!

Mom, you don't look so great!!
 I think you can see where this is going!

No matter where you live, Happy Independence Day, Happy 4th of July!!!!
