The Cured

What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life—but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart? Pulsing with provocative parallels to our troubled times, The Cured is a smart, scary, and hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption.

Ireland, 2017, 95 minutes, Rated R, Directed by David Freyne

  • "A fresh take on zombie terrain... impressive... compelling."

    – Dennis Harvey, VARIETY
  • “A very creepy, suspenseful story that’s also a better-than-average character study. The Cured is going to be a genre film to beat in 2018.”

    – Glenn Kenny, ROGEREBERT.COM
  • “Thought-provoking and sometimes wrenching twist on the zombie genre.”

    – Roger Moore, MOVIE NATION
  • “It's a moody horror movie that favors metaphor over mayhem until its violent, chaotic final third, at which point the screaming starts in earnest.”

    – David Fear, ROLLING STONE
  • “The Cured may owe much to viral shockers like 28 Days Later, but its political and personal insight elevates it alongside the best of contemporary European realism.”

    – Richard Whittaker, AUSTIN CHRONICLE
  • “Heartbreaking, compelling and terrifying, The Cured is a quick way to re-examine our capacity for forgiveness, tolerance and above all, fear."

    – Anne T. Donahue, TORONTO GLOBE AND MAIL
