A Cure for Wellness

2016

Gore Verbinski
Director
20th Century Fox Film Corporation
Distributor

Sent to retrieve a corporate board member at an exclusive health resort, young Lockhart soon realizes not all is as it seems.

Kudos to Verbinski for trying to resurrect Grand Guignol on an epic scale, but the effort is fatally flawed by trying to be both a mystery and a horror film when it is obvious where the thing is going. Still, I enjoyed.

-The Sloth

Like all of Verbinski's films, a fine example of style (and length) over substance. You'd think by now they would know to pair better scripts with his visual style, especially after all those pirate films. Interesting concept, but obvious, and the fake news advertising campaign was particularly unpalatable - the backlash against it probably did not help in an already uphill battle for box office success.
