From the director of The Ring comes this psychological thriller and “fantastically creepy experience”* about an ambitious young executive sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from a remote and mysterious “wellness center.” When he begins to unravel the retreat’s terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests there longing for the cure. *Kyle Smith, New York Post

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: A Cure for Wellness boasts a surfeit of visual style, but it's wasted on a derivative and predictable story whose twists, turns, and frights have all been more effectively dealt before.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that A Cure for Wellness is a bizarre thriller with some horror and supernatural overtones from director Gore Verbinski (the Pirates of the Caribbean movies). It's frequently violent (often with blood/gore) and very disturbing/unsettling. Characters fight and are impaled with blunt objects and burned with steam. There's a brutal car crash, a suffering deer (it's impaled by a hunk of metal), a sick cow that's sliced open, and other gross, scary images. Plus, a young woman is held captive and forced to marry, with the threat of forced consummation. A man tears a woman's clothes off and touches her between the legs, and another man masturbates (mostly implied) when another woman removes her top. Naked breasts and bottoms are shown. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," and "p---y." Smoking and drinking are shown, mainly in a social context.
