Upcoming occult thriller film The Cursed: Dead Man’s Prey has dropped its main poster. The film is an extension of the tvN drama The Cursed (2020).
The Cursed: Dead Man’s Prey will chronicle the events after the conclusion of the drama. In the drama, Jung Ji-so (Parasite) played a teenage girl who possessed the power to push people to their deaths by cursing them using their belongings. Uhm Ji-won (The Odd Family: Zombie on Sale) played a righteous journalist who single-handedly fought against the occult cult behind an IT conglomerate.
In the film, Jung and Uhm will reprise their roles. They will dig into a case of serial murders which turns out to be related to a reanimated corpse. Joining the two will be new cast members Oh Yoon-ah (Scent of a Ghost) and Lee Seol (My Punch-Drunk Boxer).
In the main poster, Uhm Ji-won and Jung Ji-so are at the forefront. They are surrounded by mysterious hooded figures that seem to be ambushing them. While Uhm Ji-won is standing upright and looking straight at the hooded figures, Jung Ji-so is crouched in a fighting position and glaring at the figures with determination in her eyes.
The Cursed: Dead Man’s Prey, also known as The Cursed: Again, is set to be released on July 28, 2021. It is the brainchild of Yeon Sang-ho, who created the international hit Train to Busan (2016).
