10. A Cure For Wellness (17th February)


This movie definitely gives out Shutter Island vibes. Doctors trying to keep patients unstable and sick, nightmares, suspense, inexplicable justifications, it’s all there. Lockhart is forcibly kept in a ‘spa’ and soon starts piecing together what is really happening. But will that get the better of him or will he escape?

They all great movies, but if we had to pick a favorite it would definitely be ‘A Cure For Wellness’ mainly because of its resemblance to ‘Shutter Island’ and to add to it, the movie is also directed to the point.
