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.

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.

In spite of the self-indulgent length, audiences are unlikely to find themselves dozing off - not when Verbinski is serving the imagery.
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.

A puzzle picture, a conspiracy thriller, a kind of baroque classical nightmare, A Cure For Wellness is too sturdy, busy and sure of itself to be much of a horror film. Nor does it mean to be.

Watching it is like living a lucid nightmare; there are hallucinations and hypnotic abstract images at every turn

This psychological horror thriller is one of those movies where everything is so aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. But the plot line gradually veers towards the slightly disappointing.
September 18, 2017
Completely fearless in blasting past good sense and good taste in its attempt to capture morbid, weird moments.
August 22, 2017
A Cure for Wellness is haunting, gorgeous, and masterfully disgusting. In a strangely subtle way, it's one the weirdest films I've seen in ages.
July 14, 2017
...a creepy, fantastical, and eventually perverse horror extravaganza.
May 31, 2017
A deeply psychological 146-minute roller coaster ride

It won't be everyone but this is a fairytale meeting grand guignol for the multiplex crowd.

A project by the director of Pirates of the Caribbean, which includes elements as scabrous as incest, bizarre sex and gory scenes, doesn't deserve to be completely dismissed. [Full review in Spanish]
