“The cure is just the beginning”
Writer/director David Freyne’s 2017 feature debut is set in Ireland after a partial cure has been found for a recent zombie outbreak. With disturbing echoes of both the global AIDS pandemic and terrorism during the Troubles, THE CURED explores what happens after we’ve been at each other’s throats.
Brought into fresh new light as we ‘learn to live with Covid-19’, THE CURED’s “blend of kitchen-sink pungency, charged politics, and pummelling shocks… packs tension, resonance, and clout” (Total Film). It also stars Elliot Page, one of the few trans actors in the mainstream.
Queer Horror Nights is proud to present THE CURED in partnership with Irish Film London. There’ll be our usual special features before the film and you’re invited to join us in the bar afterwards for a social!
