A harrowing sensory thriller
One of the best films by Kiyoshi Kurosawa ( Tokyo Sonata )

A police officer, Takabe, investigates a series of murders whose victims are found with a cross carved into their necks. One day, a young vagrant is arrested near where the last body was found. He is quickly identified as a former psychology student, gone mad and having disturbing hypnotic powers, allowing him to push people to commit criminal acts...

Directed by the great Japanese filmmaker Kiyoshi Kurosawa ( Tokyo Sonata , Kaïro ), the very chilling Cure skilfully slides from film noir to fantasy, against a backdrop of psychological enigma. This manhunt set in a deserted and disturbing Tokyo is the film of international recognition for its author, reaping the praises of Bong Joon-ho as Martin Scorsese. A harrowing sensory thriller, available for the first time on Blu-ray™!
