The Cured

For his debut feature film, writer/director David Freyne has come up with the best kind of premise, so irresistible in its simplicity that people who didn't think of it get annoyed that they didn't think of it. While scads of prior horror movies have merely inundated viewers with horrific stories about our friends and loved ones turning into flesh-eating undead monsters, The Cured imagines a world in which the thing that created such horrors is indeed a virus, and one for which a cure has been found. The world is ours, and the country is Ireland. [...] Freyne is a filmmaker to watch, and The Cured is going to be a genre film to beat in 2018. (Glenn Kenny,
