CATHY’S CURSE REVIEWED
“Cathy’s Curse” is about a young girl getting possessed by her dead aunt’s spirit. The aunt died as a small child in the same wreck that killed Cathy’s father. Now, the possessed Cathy is seeking vengeance and other low-budget horror scares. Severin should be commended for restoring and trying to find an audience for this underseen horror film. Hell, I had never seen the Director’s Cut until this point. It did change things.
Randi Allen could’ve been an amazing child horror star, but like most she faded away until recently. In the director’s cut, her performance gets to be a little more evil. While not quite The Bad Seed or Linda Blair levels of crazy, she’s delightful in her spoils. Whether it be horrific attacks or screwing with her messed up family, she seems to enjoy using and abusing her dead aunt’s spirit. I’ve had several Canadian readers comment on how wonderfully French Canadian this movie is to them. I don’t see, but I’ll take their word for it. Killer work all around and well worth checking out.
