Beware “The Prospector’s Curse”

If you and your fugitive buddy find a dying prospector on Indian soil, you couldn’t help but want to rob him, right? After all, he won’t need his money where he’s headed. However, in the land of horror movies, audiences know that situations like that aren’t so simple. In the western dark comedy short, The Prospector’s Curse, two criminals realize that they have robbed the wrong corpse and soon find themselves trying to escape his wrath.

The horror short, which just finished production in Pontypool, Ontario, is set during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890’s. The film is written and directed by Josh Heisie and produced by Bruno Marino.

The film follows Theodore “Tubby” Ellsworth and Jack Smith, two criminals on the run, lost in the untamed wilderness.  When they stumble across a mutilated Prospector, dying on Indian ground, they promise to give him a Christian burial. The fugitives break their oath and steal the old man’s gold…but that night, the Prospector’s corpse returns to make them pay!
The western horror stars, Robert Nolan (Worm, Familiar), David Roberts (Curious and Unusual Deaths), Johnny Quinn (Mind’s Eye: The Series), and Amanda Ives (I Hate Toronto: A Love Story).
