Ellen Page (Hard Candy, Flatliners) stars in the post-Zombie-era drama The Cured, which IFC Films acquired out of the Toronto International Film Festival. Now, they’ll release it in limited theaters and on VOD platforms February 23, 2018.
In this intense exclusive clip, a “cured” (Sam Keeley, Anthropoid, In the Heart of the Sea) enters the facility where they keep those who are still infected with the virus…
Our very own Joe Lipsett was at the premiere and wrote, “The Cured is social drama with horror undertones”:
“The Cured may not be the killer new zombie film that horror enthusiasts are thirsting for, but it clearly still has its brains.”
In Irish director David Freyne‘s directorial debut, “The film unfolds in the aftermath of a devastating virus which transformed the infected into zombie-like monsters. Mankind is struggling to rebuild societies deeply divided between the uninfected and those who did succumb to the virus and are still haunted by their violent actions. In the backdrop, the rise of a terrorist movement threatens to plunge the world into chaos again.”
Sam Keeley (Anthropoid, In the Heart of the Sea), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Infinity War, The Infiltrator), and Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games trilogy, “Ray Donovan”) also star.
