The Cured

Friday, February 9 - Saturday, March 10, 2018

This smart and scary tale of guilt and redemption questions what would happen if the undead returned to life. In a world ravaged by a virus that turned people 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 (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life — but is society ready to forgive him, or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart?
