Plot Outline:

A young, idealistic executive is sent on assignment to retrieve their absent CEO from a "wellness center" located in a remote location in the Swiss Alps. Upon arriving, he can't shake the feeling that something is off about the spa's miraculous healing powers. But he finds himself shaken and questioning his sanity when he comes down with the same illness that keeps all the other guests there, hoping for a cure. -- Chris Kavan

Otherwise this Gothic-lite tale is really good and effectively icky and deserves better than the reception is got at the box office.

Dane DeHaan is solid as the ambitious every-man suddenly thrust into a sinister environment overseen by the diabolical doctor (Jason Isaacs) who runs the treatment facility located in the Swiss Alps. It is a well made film but what makes it watchable is the cat-and-mouse mind game played by Dane DeHaan and Jason Isaacs. Isaacs is easily the best part of this movie as far as the acting goes.

If the film has its flaws, the most ap...
