This film was super intriguing to me, ending up as my third most anticipated movie of the year. I was a little discouraged by the mixed reviews, but I must say, my opinion of the film ended up on the higher end.
The plot of the film was very... interesting. The characters were well-developed and the mystery was as intriguing as expected. The ending is predictable and slightly over-the-top, but the journey is great. The writing is also successful in being thoroughly creepy.
The film is extremely well-made. The cinematography is great, juxtaposing the excellent modern technique with the Baroque-like architecture in the setting of the film. The production design is well-highlighted by the camerawork. The score used in the film is also extremely eerie, building the atmosphere of the film. The film focuses more on building a creepy mood rather than cheap jump scares. The acting in the film is done well, with Dane DeHaan and Jason Isaacs serving as good dramatic foil for each other.
Overall, I thought that "A Cure for Wellness" was very well-made. Its ending is not quite as good as the rest of the film, but it is as intriguing as I had expected.
