This new wellness horror movie is Gwyneth Paltrow’s nightmare: VIDEO

When you think about it, lots of wellness trends are pretty terrifying (vampire facials, sensory deprivation tanks, being stung by bees). So it was only a matter of time before someone made a horror movie about a spa, and now it appears that movie is here!

“The Cure for Wellness” was directed by Gore Verbinski, of “The Ring” and has a plot that is not dissimilar to that of “The Heart of Darkness.” A Manhattan executive is sent to a Swiss retreat to retrieve his CEO who has taken refuge there. As you can see from the trailer, above, some rather creepy stuff goes down; there’s the room filled with people floating in sensory deprivation tanks; synchronized exercises in a pool; and people swimming in a bathtub filled with eels.

In short, we expect this is what Gwyneth Paltrow’s nightmares look like. We just it doesn’t give her any ideas…
