Starring Academy Award nominee Ellen Page
What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page) Senan attempts to restart his life--but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will feat and prejudice once again tear the world apart? Pulsing with provocative parallels to our troubled times, The Cured is a smart, scary and hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption.
This may be one of the first horror movies where you wind up preferring the zombies over actual people, who can be the real hell. Hollywood Reporter
