Writer-director David Freyne’s twist on the zombie genre The Cured starring Ellen Page (Hard Candy) hit theaters and On Demand, back in February. And today, we have word that Scream Factory and IFC Midnight will bring the film to Blu-ray and DVD this July.
Our own Drew Tinnin’s review of the film called it “a gritty take on the genre that fits nicely into the new type of storytelling that these stories need to embrace in a post-Romero world.” You can check out the cover art to the right and the trailer below.

The flick stars Ellen Page (Juno, Hard Candy), Sam Keeley (Anthropoid, In the Heart of the Sea), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Infinity War, The Infiltrator), and Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games, Ray Donovan) and is directed and written by David Freyne in his first feature film.
The film will be available on Blu-ray and DVD via Scream Factory on July 3rd.
The world has been ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals until a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley, This Must Be The Place), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page, Juno), Senan attempts to restart his life — but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart? Pulsing with provocative parallels to our troubled times, The Cured is a smart, scary, and a hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption.
