Director Statement

Sisters’ Curse is a dark tale that surrounds itself in mystery and suspense. As soon as the viewer feels they are following the path of the storyline and visualize what might happen, we flip their world upside down in a spine tingling tale of twisted deceit.

It can be said that all of us our guilty of falling into our own routines and habits. Creating our own worlds with blinders on to what is actually happening all around us. Whether it be texting while crossing the street and almost being hit, or living beside a family full of mental and psychological illness, in need of serious help.

SISTERS' CURSE is a story about such a family and the heightened state of fear that could come from with in the 4 walls of a 'normal' household.
