IGN: A Cure for Wellness Review

It’s one of the strange coincidences this year that just two weeks after Rings hits theaters, the franchise’s original director, Gore Verbinski, will see the release of his long-awaited return to the horror genre with A Cure for Wellness. A psychological horror film about a man slowly losing his mind inside of a labyrinthian sanitarium, the marketing and promotional materials for A Cure for Wellness have been almost entirely composed of vague, unusual images and music meant to lure viewers into seeing the whole film - in the hopes of learning the startling truth behind those scenes.
