The Cured – a horror film said to offer a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse genre – is directed by David Freyne and stars Ellen Page, Sam Keeley, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor. It is set to hit cinemas this year, following its première at the Toronto International Film Festival last year.

Set in Ireland, where it was also shot, the film takes up where other zombie movies tend to down tools. The disease that turns people into flesh-eating mutants has been cured but this only seems to wreak new havoc and spawn further discontent, as the once infected face discrimination and many, on both sides, are unable to come to terms with what has gone before, or simply don't care!
The film unfolds in the aftermath of a devastating virus, which transformed the infected into zombie-like monsters. Mankind is struggling to rebuild societies deeply divided between the uninfected and those who did succumb to the virus and are still haunted by their violent actions. In the backdrop, the rise of a terrorist movement threatens to plunge the world into chaos again. – David Freyne

The Cured has already been well received, by audiences and critics alike, winning Best Horror award at Fantastic Fest. It will go on general release this year. See IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes for dates, reviews, etc.
