CURE FOR WELLNESS movie review

An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa's miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure. - 20th Century Fox
If all wellness centers would be as disturbing as found in the Swiss Alps here, I wouldn't go in again. Lockhart (Dane DeHaan) fails to get far and retrieve the CEO with their huge business decision from the facility that encloses all those who believe that can cure their illness from just drinking water. More that it made me skeptical about purified water "really purified" as promised.
I've been twisting at every time he discovers a dark secret within the place. Plus, the gory presentation of "healing process" are too chilly. I just don't like seeing full bodies of people being used as "experiments." The darkness in this film is beyond that I can imagine though I admit being a fan of watching Linda Blair's Scariest Places on Earth.
It feels really weird after seeing it and you might not want to sleep immediately. I browsed in Youtube for about an hour until I retired to bed.

Cure for Wellness is now showing in cinemas. R-16 for scenes not suitable for younger audiences.
