We’re well into Halloween season, when witches fly on their brooms, jack o’ lanterns are on full display, and the ghouls come out to play. Halloween is one of the most exciting seasons to get in the spirit for – whether it’s through ghostly decorations (just make sure they don’t come to life!) or watching spook-tacular films, and we have just the right movie for you to put at the top of your queue – Netflix‘s The Curse of Bridge Hollow.
The Curse of Bridge Hollow, directed by Jeff Wadlow, is bound to be your new favorite film and a Halloween classic. The entertaining movie follows a teenage girl named Sydney (played by the immensely talented Priah Ferguson) who accidentally unleashes an ancient curse on the town of Bridge Hollow that makes all Halloween decorations come to life. Sydney must team up with her dad (portrayed by the prolific Marlon Wayans) to save the town. The extraordinary film also stars the incomparable Kelly Rowland, Rob Riggle, John Michael Higgins, Nia Vardalos, Lauren Lapkus, Holly J. Barrett, Myles Vincent Perez, Abi Monterey, and Helen Slayton-Hughes. The Curse of Bridge Hollow has the perfect balance of comedy and thrills. Every second of the movie is an incredibly exciting watch and it’s a motion picture that the whole family will truly enjoy.
Director Jeff Wadlow and profound actor Marlon Wayans’s main goal with this film was to emphasize that Halloween is fun, and they effortlessly got that fantastic message out through this masterpiece of a movie. It’s clear to see how much of a blast the cast and crew had working on this flick and they truly created something special with this movie.
Stranger Things‘s Priah Ferguson gave a knockout performance in The Curse of Bridge Hollow. This movie marks her first ever lead role in a feature film and she took it on with such grace and passion.
“It was insane,” said Ferguson. “I’ve always wanted a lead in something, whether it was a series or a film, especially a film. There’s definitely some responsibilities that had to be taken in place in order to lead a film such as being on time and making sure I’m prepared, knowing my lines, all that good stuff. I was definitely prepared on that. I enjoyed working with the cast, they were really fun, especially Kelly and Marlon, they were super sweet and I learned a lot from this experience.”
Ferguson, Kelly Rowland, John Michael Higgins, Lauren Lapkus, Holly J. Barrett, Myles Vincent Perez, Abi Monterey, Helen Slayton-Hughes, and director Jeff Wadlow reunited at the Los Angeles special screening of their movie, The Curse of Bridge Hollow at the Netflix Tudum Theater on Oct. 8.
