yes, slow. but an interesting movie. there were some indicators of the kind of creepy ending that was coming. i'm glad it had an ending like that, otherwise it would have just been a creepy doctor in a creepy hospital

Very slow and not the best finish.

Intriguing and disturbing movie but a little too long and confusing in areas. Left me with some unanswered questions. There is some very beautiful and some very creepy imagery.

2.5 hours of slow, boring creep, followed by 15 minutes of "wait, what? this is like 4 movies worth of crazy visuals and backstory and character development and action and dystopian goth music video crammed in here. Such a good concept but such a poor execution.

Another example of learning the hard way regards researching a film's length. "The Cure for Wellness" rates 42% on rotten tomatoes which seems to be about right. Reminded me somewhat of the unlikely fusion of "The Ninth Configuration" and "Dracula". I imagine the lead had an ithcy sore leg from all that hobbling around in a plaster cast. Some interesting effects and cinematography (a reflecting train entering a tunnel). Avoid this movie if you have a fear of eels (anguillophobia?!)!

a very loooooong movie that has you HOPEING for more, settling for less, then wondering why you watched it in the first place at the end. Really quite a puzzling dilemma to decide if you want to invest your time.

This one is certainly a trip. I personally loved it. I watched it with my best friend (a longtime horror lover), her boyfriend (who is terrified of 90% of horror movies), my partner (who is 50/50 with anything spooky). We all enjoyed it for different reasons. It is incredibly atmospheric, creating one of the most quietly unnerving vibes I've seen in a long time. If you're into jump scares, this one isn't for you. It's a much slower pace than a lot of horror movies being churned out and that's definitely a welcome change. WARNING: there is a lot of body horror and a pretty intense scene with sexual assault for those who are sensitive to it.

This movie needs a cure for being boring. You've seen this movie in many incanation so there is no need to see this one.

i am not a fan of too many horror films, but this one is superb, maybe not so much at the end, but still a great popcorn eating movie. parts of it are really creepy though, beware.
