Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s spellbinding international breakthrough
established him as one of the leaders of an emerging New
Wave of Japanese horror while pushing the genre into
uncharted realms of philosophical and existential exploration.
A string of shocking, seemingly unmotivated murders—each
committed by a different person yet all bearing the same grisly
hallmarks—leads Detective Kenichi Takabe (Koji Yakusho)
into a labyrinthine investigation to discover what connects
them, and into a disturbing game of cat and mouse with an
enigmatic amnesiac (Masato Hagiwara) who may be evil
incarnate. Awash in a mood of hushed, hypnotic dread, Cure
is a tour de force of psychological tension and a hallucinatory
journey into the darkest recesses of the human mind.
