A Cure for Wellness tries to pays homage to the style and feel of classic horror and has a promising beginning, but by the finale, it’s just one giant plot hole full of wriggling eels.
A Cure for Wellness trailer – Gore Verbinski’s latest
Gore Verbinski (The Ring, Pirates of the Caribbean) is one of America’s more interesting directors. He used to be in a punk rock band called The Daredevils but sold his guitar to buy his first camera. His earlier professional work was in the world of music videos for bands like Bad Religion and L7, before he met success with the family fun Mousehunt, and of course the very successful remake of The Ring. After spending a lot of time with Johnny Depp on Pirates and other recent action/adventure outings, I think everyone’s a bit excited to see Verbinski get back to his uber visceral roots. Well, at least I am.
