Horror network Shudder just released the trailer for a genius new documentary series called Cursed Films that explores the myths and legends around films that transcended the silver screen by giving rise to spooky rumors around their productions.

Some of the films covered include The Exorcist, The Omen, The Crow, Poltergeist, and Twilight Zone The Movie, all films with either real life tragedy or terrifying rumors attached to their behind-the-scenes production.

And rather than just cobble together old footage, some of the actors (yep, Linda Blair is in there), producers, and directors actually appear in the series to delve into the dark history of their films.

The docs-series kicks off on April 2.
