A disease that turned people into zombies has been cured!
Ellen Page (Hard Candy, Flatliners) stars in the post-Zombie-era drama The Cured, which IFC Films has acquired out of the ongoing Toronto International Film Festival, Bloody Disgusting learned.
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 and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor also star.
Freyn directed from his own screenplay developed out of proof of concept prequel short The First Wave.
