Halloween month is almost upon us, and Netflix has already announced an interesting lineup of films and series to keep you hooked through the season. One such film is The Curse of Bridge Hollow, a horror-comedy slated to release soon. We need to wait and watch if The Curse of Bridge Hollow is any real fun. Here’s all we know till now about the upcoming Netflix original.
The Curse Of Bridge Hollow: The Plot
Halloween has been used in numerous ways to set up horror plots in films and TV shows. In short, Halloween makes for the perfect setting for all things scary, evil, or amusing. Priah Ferguson’s Sydney(a teenage girl) accidentally sets an ancient Halloween spirit loose, and this poltergeist brings every Halloween decoration to life, wreaking havoc on the town. Sydney has to team up with her dad (played by Wayans), albeit reluctantly, to fight the spirit and stop it before things go out of hand.
“It’s basically a father and daughter story about a dad who moves his family and 15-year-old daughter from Brooklyn to Massachusetts because he gets a job at a school, and the Halloween decorations in the city start coming to life. And him and his daughter have to work together to figure it out. It’s a cute movie, it’s not like A Haunted House, because it’s very PG, PG-13. It’s not like I’m going to go (expletive) a stuffed animal.(sic)”Wayans
The Cast and Crew
Priah Ferguson, who plays Erica Sinclair in Stranger Things, will star as the daughter who accidentally turned the decorations real. Marlon Wayans will star as the father. Wayans is known for his roles in movies like Scary Movie, White Chicks, Little Man, and Respect.
Apart from Wayans and Ferguson, the film will also star Kelly Rowland, Nia Vardalos, Rob Riggle, Helen Slayton-Hughes, John Michael Higgins, Lauren Lapkus, Dave Sheridan, Abi Monterey, Myles Perez, and Holly J Barrett among others.
Jeff Wadlow will be directing The Curse Of Bridge Hollow. He has directed films like Kick-Ass 2, Cry Wolf, Fantasy Island, and several episodes of the TV shows Are You Afraid Of The Dark? and Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television. The film’s screenplay has been written by Todd Berger (The Happytime Murders, It’s A Disaster) and John R. Morey (Family Guy, The Beach buds) based on a story written by Berger and Robert Rugan (a CLIO award-winning writer and director who has made the comedy Alice’s Misadventures In Wonderland).
The Curse of Bridge Hollow: Release date
