IFC Films is bringing a different kind of zombie film with The Cured and the first trailer has been released.
What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan, a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law, Senan attempts to restart his life—but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart? Pulsing with provocative parallels to our troubled times, The Cured is a smart, scary, and hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption.
Ellen Page, Sam Keeley, and Tom Vaughn-Lawlor star in the film, which was written and directed by David Freyne and is set in Ireland.
IFC will unveil The Cured in select theaters and VOD on February 23.
