Groundbreaking Japanese genre director Kiyoshi Kurosawa found breakthrough international success with this unique and thrilling horror film. In CURE, the great Japanese actor Kôji Yakusho plays a police detective investigating a series of murders in which the grisly hallmarks are the same but the murderers themselves are different people each time. The only thing that they have in com- mon is a connection to an enigmatic amnesiac (Hagiwara) who may be
evil incarnate.

“Tone and atmosphere mirror subject to perfection in Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s hypnotic trip into the lower depths of the human mind.” – David Rooney, Variety
