The Young and the Cursed Synopsis
Alarming reports that demonic possessions are on the rise worldwide is making headlines. The Catholic Church has begun training more priests to perform exorcisms before the horror can spread any further. But the horror is with us now. It’s already happening!!!
On the eve of the blood moon lunar eclipse, five of them – all young people, racially mixed from different socio-economic backgrounds, are compelled to converge as a group on a mysterious house in the country. The group soon realizes they have one thing in common – all have personal issues. Some have been diagnosed with schizophrenia because of the voices they are hearing, telling them to perform certain acts, damaging themselves and others, behaving badly. But the real issue seems to be – are demons communicating with them, possessing them?
The group is greeted by KYRA, their hostess, a cute, petite young woman, who invites them inside the impressive house. That night it becomes clear they’re all cursed. We hear of their setbacks, betrayals and heartbreaks in their current lives. Lately, they find themselves doing destructive things, completely out of character. When DONNY, the quiet techno-wiz, breaks out an Ouija board and begins asking questions, the pointer begins to move on its own. They realize there’s powerful spirits present. Kyra becomes energized and changes from a meek girl into a tyrant. When her menace becomes so frightening that they try to leave, they find they cannot. Their vehicles will not start. It becomes Hotel California. You can check out at any time, but you can never leave. How much of this is reality and how much is illusion? Weird, improbable phenomena abounds.
Kyra transforms into a demon know as Lilith, a fallen angel, an almost mythical creature. And she has one goal – to plant her demon children into the host bodies of these young people – leaving them devoid of their human identities. And it will happen at 2:43 am, at the time of the blood moon eclipse. The powers of evil will be at their highest peak. These five people will then be reborn as demonic spirits on a quest to spread evil to the earth.
But Donny figures it out. He knows what is happening. They will all die unless he does something to stop it. Physical force alone will not deter Lilith. Human muscle cannot prevail. It takes witchcraft to fight witchcraft. And it will have to be a team effort.
The others include a handsome black musician, JASON. And there’s the Mexican-American girl, MARIA, who lives in fear of an imaginary creature that haunts her. The pretty blonde sex goddess, TRUDY, exclaims that the only thing that she fears is the evil version of herself who nightly sexually assaults her. TAHOMA, a native-American, is stalked by skinwalker. He is the alpha male leader of the group. Chaos erupts. It becomes a night of extremes – passion, sex, horror, betrayal and humiliation, ie., “The Exorcist” meets “The Breakfast Club.”
The ultimate battle comes down to exorcising Kyra, freeing her from Lilith, the powerful demon who possesses her. A tremendous battle ensues. Does anyone leave the house alive? Or will they all become victims of Lilith’s evil designs?
