When a young female scientist discovers that the pharmaceutical company she works for had developed a cure for cancer years earlier, she attempts to release it to the world. Knowing that they make more money from chemotherapy drugs than the cure, the company does everything it can to stop her. The only thing sci-fi about this is the "fact" of a cure for cancer. This is definately a Thriller. Excellent photography shot in and around Wellington.

The Cure
Official MP4 Trailer


Since February 2014, PAL R0 dvd copies can be purchased from the producer via the official site - - This is a basic package with the only extras being trailers. There are no subtitles, except for some spoken Spanish dialogue which has non-removeable English subtitles. It is presented in its original 2.35:1 format with a spoken English DD 5.1 soundtrack.

A Region B 1080p Blu-ray version became available 04 April 2014. It has been renamed 'Virus Outbreak' and has spoken English and German DTS-HD Master 7.1 soundtracks. The only subtitle option is in German and the only extras are trailers. On the same date a PAL R2 DVD version of it was also released in German speaking territories with DD 5.1 soundtracks. Unfortunately, the format of both German releases is 1.85:1, instead of the original 2.35:1, which means that 17% of the original horizontal image, intended by the Director, is lost. It also means that the overall image is a bit softer. The prices seem to be about 16eur.

My recommendation is either purchase the DVD version offered by the producer, or the Blu-ray from Germany. I would not recommend the German DVD, unless you must have a DVD copy spoken in German.
