CAST: Ellen Page, Sam Keeley, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Paula Malcomson DIRECTOR: David Freyne WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES
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.
The Cured may not necessarily be a romp-'em-stomp-'em zombie flick with copious amounts of blood and gore, but it's still a powerful confrontation of many of the complicated socio-political affairs at the forefront of the news these days.Heather Wixson, Daily Dead
The Cured is an easy recommendation for genre fans and for those who want a lot more brains in their zombie films.Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
The Cured is a fantastic zombie film with intelligent writing, precision direction, top-tier acting, and sincere sociopolitical themes and parallels that are essential in elevating horror films to something greater than just scares and gore.Alex Arabian, Film Inquiry
