HR people are probably the most unpopular folks in any office.

Few people realize that if those HR people don’t do their jobs, corporate life can get quite messy. Like can you imagine what will happen if your salary and tax records are not updated?

From visionary director, Gore Verbinski, “A Cure for Wellness” is a chilling and mind-bending psychological thriller. Embarking on the movie, Verbinski wanted to make a thriller with the depth, insight and power of classics in the genre that he admired, such as “The Shining” (Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film), “Don’t Look Now” (Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 film) and “Rosemary’s Baby” (Roman Polanski’s 1968 film). The idea of a quick fix cure, together with society’s malaise and the obsession with perfect health were topics that fascinated Verbinski, whose films include the hugely successful “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and the Academy Award® winning animated film, “Rango”.

This makes it ideal for outdoor use in mission-critical applications such as perimeter protections of airports, critical infrastructures, government buildings and bridges.
