An overstuffed, head-scratching paranoid thriller with shades of horror and sci-fi thrown in for sometimes confounding measure.

If only the writing measured up to the cinematography, the score, and the immense talent of its two leads.

Random creepy images grow tiresome after 80 or so minutes. Unmercifully, A CURE FOR WELLNESS has another sixty minutes to go, without a coherent thread or satisfying payoff. Or any payoff, really.

A Cure for Wellness is a utterly banal and ridiculous visual spectacle. [Full review in Spanish]

Verbinski's return to horror is a complete mess. With its impressive first half, A Cure for Wellness promises a lot, though in time it proves to be placebo with a ludicrous ending leaving no room for remedy.

For a film that makes its enigmas so paramount, it's strange to see [A Cure For Wellness] treat its audience so disdainfully.

Verbinski is not subtle with these themes, particularly the comparison of the hellish spa to the ruthless corporate world Lockhart craves to ascend in, but in his lead actor, he really manages to sell this and produce a smarter film for it.

A movie with a mismatch of threads and motifs, but one that manages to hold them all together and create a satisfyingly creepy, and original, modern horror movie.

Pairs David Cronenberg to Shutter Island, adding a dash of Looney Toons to cherry-top this fantastical madcap chamber piece

When it's working there's plenty to admire but when it falters the film stumbles badly.

A beautifully shot film with some career-best work by Verbinski that... suffers from a lack of editing and some narrative issues.

In the end, Wellness has nothing to say...In its desperate attempt to shock, it's sick and twisted in all the wrong ways.

Although it is flawed, in a way, A Cure For Wellness has something for almost everyone. Genre buffs and cinephiles will appreciate the art in the early and middle sections, and fans of completely bonkers movies will bask in the climax.

The cinematographer may have gotten some great material for his reel... for the rest of us, it is a two plus hour long waste of time.

In spite of the self-indulgent length, audiences are unlikely to find themselves dozing off - not when Verbinski is serving the imagery.
August 30, 2018
A two and a half hour mess that needs to be cured.
August 21, 2018
At times ludicrous and exhilarating, A Cure for Wellness embraces the silliness of its plot without a hint of irony... This is Roger Corman territory, and Verbinski delights at the chance to pull the camera back and watch the world burn.

Goth is brilliant as a confused, brainwashed, and innocent girl... she's definitely an intriguing actress that I could see her getting a lot more work in period pieces and other horror films.
