Satanic Panic initially had me believing it and We Summon the Darkness were one and the same. I must have heard about the latter being in production and then saw the former’s poster because it looked like Alexandra Daddario on it, but is in fact newcomer Hayley Griffith. Satanic Panic opens up with an innocent enough but low-tier atmosphere. However, after getting over the initial hump, this flick picks up the pace.
A Cure for Wellness is a 2017 psychological horror film by Gore Verbinski set in a rehabilitation retreat perched up in the Swiss Alps. It stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Place Beyond the Pines) as Lockhart, a businessman tasked with retrieving the missing CEO of his company. The last trace of his employer leads him to the wellness spa in the mountains where he meets the peculiar Dr. Volmer, played by Jason Isaacs (The Patriot, Peter Pan). Immediately Lockhart is stonewalled by the doctor and his staff when he insists on seeing his lost boss. After an accident prolongs Lockhart’s stay at the spa he befriends an odd girl who has been there her entire life and becomes determined to crack through the retreat’s glossy veneer.
