Synopsis

An ambitious young executive (Dane DeHaan) travels to the Swiss Alps to retrieve his boss from a "wellness spa," only to find that his boss has vanished. He is then trapped in the facility, and begins to realize that its staff have a far more wicked plan than to simply improve the health of their patients. While held at the spa, he encounters a young girl named Hannah (Mia Goth), a longtime spa patient who is oblivious about what horrible things the spa director has prepared for her.

As the young man’s sanity is tested, he discovers that he has been diagnosed with the same outlandish illness that keeps all the patients at the spa hoping for a cure.

  • 1 star "TLDR; 2.5 hours to get to a graphic, incestuous, sexual assault of a child by her father, makes this movie a good one to skip. I decided to take a chance on it despite the few negative reviews since some movies are a love it or hate it type of thing. Well, this was a hate it, and I think it will be that way for most people. It started out ok with a creepy thriller vibe similar to a Shutter Island (although it seemed to try and copy that). And then it just goes downhill getting dumber and more uncomfortable by the minute (after it's too late to go refund your money). This all culminates in a long and graphic (nude) rape scene of a child by her father, who stops to sniff his fingers -- yeah... that bad!"
  • 4 stars "it was so scary!"
  • 1 star "Hard to find the words to describe how painfully bad this film is. The premise is beyond silly, and at 2 1/2 hours, the movie is way too long. Perhaps 2 1/2 hours too long."
