A gleefully slippery and excessive horror film from director Gore Verbinski, A CURE FOR WELLNESS invites you to an exclusive spa and wellness centre high in the Swiss Alps that will cure all your ailments – you just can’t ever leave.
An ambitious young executive, Lockhart (Dane deHaan) is eager for the task when he is asked to retrieve his company’s CEO from a stay at an exclusive spa. But this isolated ‘wellness centre’ high in the mountains immediately strikes him as odd when he arrives, from its so-called ‘miracle cure’ water to the centre’s ominous founder Dr. Heinreich Volmer (Jason Isaacs). Lockhart quickly finds it impossible to leave, as the staff swiftly diagnose him with suffering the same mysterious affliction that the other guests all share. His sanity tested, and the mysterious centre’s secrets slowly unravelling, Lockhart is poised to discover a Lovecraftian vision of horror lurking beneath the miraculous waters.
