The Cured

Critics Consensus

The zombie apocalypse genre is crowded with clichés, but The Cured sets itself slightly apart with some extra BRAAAAAAAAAAINS and thematic depth.

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (45) | Rotten (20)

  • My tolerance for zombie acting and zombie drama in the style of Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later is never all that high, and the tropes are a bit familiar here.

  • Struggles to move beyond genre clichs.

  • At its best, it has the provocative cunning of a "Black Mirror" episode. Unfortunately, "The Cured" becomes less cerebral and more predictably action-oriented in its third act .

  • The feelings are right, and that's very much the main thing.

  • Debut director David Freyne has obviously seen entirely too many George Romero movies for his own good.

  • It's not that writer-director David Freyne is incapable of finesse - "The Cured" has long and affecting passages marked more by sadness and melancholy than horror - but he seems to have misjudged the overtone here.

    If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.

    What if zombies could be cured? This Irish production kinda ponders the implications, but stays too formulaic, too safe, in the end, forgetting that the subject matter DEMANDS outlandish, fantastic elements. The ultimate result is less than dramatic, less than interesting. Still, a good idea. I waited in vain for at least one scene where titled characters drooled while eyeing some innocent victim mindlessly.
