‘A Cure for Wellness” is a beautifully eerie thriller

Was it Winston Churchill who said “Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip”? Upcoming thriller A Cure for Wellness operates on this premise, leveraging the humanity’s desire for peace of mind in a loud world to send perfectly well people on a permanent vacation.

20th Century Fox and New Regency give us a peek into the intriguing premise of the upcoming psychological thriller A Cure for Wellness with its recent trailer reveal.

A Cure for Wellness is directed by Oscar winner Gore Verbinski (Rango) and stars an impressive cast that includes Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, Fury), Dane DeHaan (Amigo, Chronicle, The Amazing Spiderman 2), Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac Vol. 2) and Adrian Schiller (The Danish Girl). The movie takes the audience to a “wellness spa” in a picturesque remote location in the Swiss Alps. The facility promises a cure for what ails modern society, but all is not as it seems, as an ambitious young executive (played by DeHaan) uncovers its terrifying secrets and fights to save his life — and sanity.

An intense, edge-of-your-seat thriller, A Cure for Wellness opens in Philippine cinemas February 15, 2017 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
