A Cure for Wellness is a psychological thriller directed by the visually talented, Gore Verbinski, who has been recognized for creating the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, Rango, and The Ring, one of the greatest horror films of the last decade. Upon watching the film’s trailers, I felt very skeptical about this movie, because I thought it would either be a very engaging thriller, or a tedious bore.

When we pulled up to Juiceland, we noticed a lot of greenery; it made the space feel like an overgrown garden. They had lots of random little trinkets scattered around the area; fun little things that make the place feel more homey.  There were also a lot of benches and swings to sit on. When we walke...
