The Cured

The Cured

Program Section: Night Sight | Feature Film | Austrian Premiere |

Language: English

After a virus has turned those infected with it into blood-thirsty zombies for years, the world finds new hope with the discovery of a cure. But rebuilding society turns out to be difficult, as reintegrating those formerly infected becomes a special challenge. It is one of these, specifically her brother-in-law, that a young widow (embodied by the indie icon Ellen Page) takes into her home, which does not remain without dramatic consequences.

Everything revolves around the question of how a society should deal with taking those presumably responsible – now made “innocuous” – back into their midst. With his splatter-horror debut, Irish director David Freyne succeeds in creating an exciting combination of zombie horror and social drama, creating a space for current social-critical commentaries – 28 DAYS LATER and CHILDREN OF MEN send their regards.
