      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A Cure for Wellness boasts a surfeit of visual style, but it's wasted on a derivative and predictable story whose twists, turns, and frights have all been more effectively dealt before.

      Kristen Lopez Culturess The problems lie in an excessively lengthy runtime resulting in repetition of scares before an utterly bizarre finale. Nov 20, 2017 Full Review Stephen Romei The Australian Verbinski's gothic psychological thriller is absorbing. It unfolds in a maze even Theseus would not escape. It will keep you guessing until the almost unbelievable ending. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 24, 2017 Full Review Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald If Verbinski had brought pace, the film might have worked, but he takes an eternity, then throws it all to the winds with a finale that's remarkable silly, even in this fanciful neck of the woods. Rated: 3/5 Mar 15, 2017 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Sheer peculiarity may earn A Cure for Wellness devoted enthusiasts, but those hoping for story logic or emotional involvement will feel unfulfilled. Rated: 1.5/4 Apr 5, 2022 Full Review Jason Shawhan Nashville Scene This movie is lush, cruel and stuffed to the brim with unforgettable images. Sep 10, 2021 Full Review Kip Mooney College Movie Review Overstays its welcome and moves from 'fun creepy' to truly disturbing. Rated: C Aug 28, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Rocío P Me pareció original la trama y las actuaciones muy buenas, también tiene unas escenas impresionantes que no vas a ver en otra película.👍 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/22/24 Full Review Mary Ann F It's an odd film, but in a wonderful way. I saw it quite awhile ago, and in stumbling upon it in RT, I realize I remember it all. It was compelling, haunting and gorgeous to look at. And then there's Dane. :) It's a very original story, but the ending was a tad disappointing. Still, it's very much worth the watch. Go for it. Just leave your expectations behind. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/22/24 Full Review Jacob G Allow me to begin by stating this is 100% NOT a horror film. If anything, it is more of a thriller. It is very much a slow-burn for the majority of the runtime, as main character Lockheart investigates the Sanitarium institution, and clues are dropped throughout that eventually lead to the finale. I have heard many complain about the ending to this film, but to be perfectly honest, I found the resolution to be suprisingly enjoyable. Many have said it makes no sense, but if you pay attention to the clues throughout, I felt it actually makes perfect sense to reach the finale that it does. At worst, there are a few minor holes, but they can filled pretty easily with a bit of basic common sense thought, in my humble opinion. I had heard some people claim this film contained "intense body horror", but I assure you there is nothing of the sort. Without giving too much away, the worst you see are dried out bodies, most of which are covered by blankets, so you only see them from the neck up. There are also some nude bodies shown, but they appear very normal, so I'm not 100% sure where people are getting "body horror" from. All in all, if you like bizzare thrillers, with a fantasy-esqe twist, this may be for you. If you are looking for horror, look elsewhere, because you definitely won't find it here. Unless you have a phobia of eels, then maybe. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review Adam B I really enjoyed this movie. It was engaging and fun throughout. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Elizabeth g I quite enjoyed it. It was akin to shutter Island but I found the plot more endearing. I understand why it flopped, with movie theater prices these days i wouldnt have been terribly happy either, but I do think the cinematography would have been incredible on the big screen. Ending could have been punchier, but I'm not mad at it. Could see this becoming a comfort watch for me. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Stoner J I don't get the critic reviews. It IS original as hell, never seen anything like it. The plot ISNT predictable at all, I was surprised by every reveal and it keeps you guessing the whole movie. This actually is a lot like the Box (Richard Kelly movie) that's equally original, hella good, and keeps you guessing. Super good this one Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/24 Full Review Read all reviews
