"Curse of Aurore manages to be different in a genre full of the same old tired tropes. Meta, funny and yet scary as hell, this film has gotten my attention and is listed as one of the most anticipated films of 2021. With an engaging, entertaining cast that truly clicks with each other and some cool SFX, this is a solid and chilling horror film." --The Blood-Shed/January 10, 2021
Curse of Aurore received the award for 'Best Ensemble' at The Unnamed Footage Festival . The film was screened as an official selection at The Balboa theater in San Francisco, CA on March 18, 2022
"For horror fans, Curse of Aurore is a solid bit of angsty, jumpy scares. It has a solid framing device and some well chosen frights that are kept to the end for maximum tension building."
"There is fun to be had with three likable leads, a fun meta-narrative, and a really solid and scary ending."
--Sean Patrick of Vocal Media/January 6, 2021
"I have to say I really loved this film. There were some genuine moments of creepy terror in it. The location of rural Canada was perfect, and I loved the weirdly religious overtones that were reeking out of the entire town. From the creepy overabundance of crosses in Lena’s family home to the bizarre, zombie-like group of neighbors casually shuffling around. There are plenty of great scares and some good practical effects towards the end. It’s always impressive to me what filmmakers accomplish on a low budget. The acting is terrific, and as much as I wouldn’t want him as my friend, hats off to Jordan Kaplan for his portrayal as the utterly obnoxious (yet strangely endearing anyway) Kevin. Now that’s some good acting."

"The primary cast members all sell their parts of the story to perfection, without any major moments of bad acting – an issue that can plague low budget and microbudget cinema. Coupled with creepy atmosphere and interesting camera work, the end result is an entertaining horror film that discerning found footage fans and most horror fans in general will be able to latch onto."
