David Freyne’s The Cured Now Screening in US Cinemas

Posted: 26th February 2018

Following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last September, David Freyne’s The Cured, is now screening in selected US cinemas.

Produced by Rory Dungan and Rachael O'Kane at Tilted Pictures, with Freyne writing and directing the film, The Cured, received critical acclaim following its debut at TIFF for its exploration of social issues through the lens of horror. 

For six years, a virus has devastated Europe, transforming people into zombie-like monsters. All is lost until a cure is found. The cure, which has a 75% success rate, restores the infected to full physical health, although the cured remember everything they did while infected. Three years into this great hope, the third wave of cured are ready for release in Ireland.

The title, which stars Irish actors Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, and Sam Keeley alongside Ellen Page also scooped Best Horror Feature at Fantastic Film Fest in Austin, Texas last September and was picked up for distribution in North America by IFC for a seven-figure number following its world premiere at TIFF.

The Cured was financed by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board, Northern Ireland Screen, and Bac Films
