    • Synopsis
    • THE YOUNG AND THE CURSED
      Six of them – all teenagers, ethically mixed from different socio-economic backgrounds - are drawn to a remote cabin in the woods by insistent messages received on their cell phones.
      There they learn that powerful forces have summoned them for reasons that are unclear. They must wait for fate to reveal itself. But when Tahoma (a Native American) and some of the others become alarmed, Kyra (a cute, petite woman) begins to make a frightening physical transformation. The atmosphere becomes so tense that several try to leave. Doors shock to the touch. Vehicles won’t start. Cell phones don’t work. When Jason, (a Haitian-American) takes off running he finds himself back where he started. They’re trapped!
      At Donny’s (a quiet scholarly type) insistence, they confront their worse fears and join hands on the pointer of a Ouija board. Suddenly it begins to move on its own! They watch in horror as Kyra slowly transforms into Lilith – an ancient Demon witch! She has one goal – to permanently install her demon children who have been residing inside Tahoma, Maria (a Latina), Jason, Trudy (a sexy blonde) and Donny, plaguing and destroying their young lives for as long as each of them can remember. The result will be that each body will be devoid of a human soul and under her control. It will mark the death of each of the teens gathered at the house and it will happen within hours at the time of the lunar eclipse, the so-called Blood Moon, when Lilith’s powers will be at their greatest peak. Finally, with her success, all empowered spirits will begin a quest for demonic rule of earth.
      That night it becomes clear they all have one thing in common – they’re cursed. They all do damaging things to themselves and others, fighting, arguing, behaving badly. All have had psychiatric problems, but the real issue is - are they real psychiatric problems or is it the manipulation of the demons within them?
