Cure ★★★★★

like watching the damned be dragged into hell. the outcome is known, the fear is right in front of your eyes but you are powerless to stop it, there is nothing you can do to counter the despair, the insidious nightmare that infects everyone in its path. you sit there and you feel fear from knowing the pain that awaits those who fall into the trap and knowing that deviation is impossible, that this is their destiny. mystery gives the possibility of the fear not being as bad as you imagine it to be, it creates a sensation of hope within the viewer that the dread will fail to live up to the horrors created in their own mind. that honour is not given to us here, we know the curse and we have to live with that knowledge and watch the fates of the innocents who stumble across it. the scariest movie i’ve ever seen.
