We're always gleaming for something new and innovative, or at least interesting, in the zombie genre and once in a while, something comes along that seems to disrupt the usual. The Cured appears to be one of those.


The debut feature film of David Freyne, who also wrote the script, the movie unfolds after a zombie virus ravages the world. It takes four years but a cure is developed and a large swatch of the infected population is saved.

Senan (Sam Keeley) is one of the cured who is welcomed back into his family by his sister-in-law played by Ellen Page. He tries to re-start his life but he's plagued by the memories of the horrific acts he committed while a zombie and to make matters more difficult, society doesn't seem ready to accept a former-zombie with a warm embrace.



It sounds like it could be the set-up for a ridiculous comedy but The Cured actually looks like a fascinating new take on the zombie story and more than that, an interesting allegory for all sorts situations - the first that comes to mind is ex-cons.


The Cured opens theatrically and will be available on VOD on February 23.

Sounds a lot like In the Flesh, which was a great show. Wish BBC had funded more seasons.
