Ellen Page is trying to protect her family as she navigates through a post-zombie-apocalyptic world in the newly-released trailer for the horror drama "The Cured."

Marking the feature debut of Irish writer-director David Freyne, the upcoming thriller takes place in Dublin, set in the aftermath of a devastating zombie apocalypse in which approximately 70 percent of those infected have now been cured.

Irish actor Sam Keeley (Monsters: Dark Continent, Burnt) plays a formerly infected man who has returned to his family after four years of living as a flesh eating zombie. Like all cured zombies, he is virtually ostracized by society, though his widowed sister-in-law (Page) has generously agreed to take him in. But she's no fool. Like anyone else, she still fears the "cured" can easily fall back into their old violent habits.

Co-starring Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (The Infiltrator) and Paula Malcomson (Deadwood), "The Cured" premiered back in September at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. It's now slated to hit theaters and VOD on February 23rd.

synopsis:
What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, 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), 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), 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 hauntingly human tale of guilt and redemption.
