Voluntarily entering sensory deprivation tanks has become a new trend for people to experience, allowing the user to clear their mind and enjoy some time to be truly alone with their thoughts. In a new clip for A Cure for Wellness, a sensory deprivation tank has a much more sinister goal. Check out the brand-new clip below.
Read the film's official synopsis:
"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."
A Cure for Wellness marks Gore Verbinski's return to the world of horror following his big-budget entries in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Considering how effective Verbinski's direction was in 2002's The Ring, A Cure for Wellness has a lot of potential and could inspire the director to delve deeper into the horror world.
The film's plot also sounds similar to Scorsese's Shutter Island, another psychological period piece centered around an institution, but it'll be tough for Dane DeHaan to compete with Leonardo DiCaprio.
A Cure for Wellness lands in theaters on February 17.
