Critic Reviews for The Cured
Suspenseful and thought-provoking, The Cured is a serious, engaged horror movie. More upsetting than scary, it ratchets up the tension unsettlingly. There's life in zombies yet.
My tolerance for zombie acting and zombie drama in the style of Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later is never all that high, and the tropes are a bit familiar here.
Though The Cured loses its way a little in the final act, it offers delicious variations that facilitate new (if not exactly fresh) flavours of creepiness and great scope for socio-political metaphor.
At its best, it has the provocative cunning of a "Black Mirror" episode. Unfortunately, "The Cured" becomes less cerebral and more predictably action-oriented in its third act .
Audience Reviews for The Cured
If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.
What if zombies could be cured? This Irish production kinda ponders the implications, but stays too formulaic, too safe, in the end, forgetting that the subject matter DEMANDS outlandish, fantastic elements. The ultimate result is less than dramatic, less than interesting. Still, a good idea. I waited in vain for at least one scene where titled characters drooled while eyeing some innocent victim mindlessly.
