WATCH: Tom Vaughan-Lawlor's Newest Film Sees Him Adapt A Role That's Scarier Than Nidge

If you're planning on going to the cinema this weekend, we're sorry but leave the decision making to us for this week.

Because, you cannot head to your local big screen without having a gawk at the new movie starring Tom Vaughan-Lawlor where he plays a character that is even scarier than that of Nidge from Love/Hate.

The Cured hits Irish cinemas on Friday and fills that Irish zombie horror movie gap that has been in our lives since... (we can't think of another Irish zombie horror movie from recent times.)

The plot summary reads:

"For six years, a virus has devastated Europe, transforming people into zombie-like monsters. 

"All is lost until a cure is found. The cure, which has a 75% success rate, restores the infected to full physical health, although the cured remember everything they did while infected. 

"Three years into this great hope, the third wave of cured are ready for release in Ireland."

The 90 minutes thriller is very Irish focused and has the backing of the Irish Film Board. It was filmed on location in Wicklow and Dublin and the music is done by Irish band, And So I Watch You From Afar.

A creepy name for a band but it is equally fitting for this movie which is bound to give you the heeby-geebies.

That has sent the shivers up our spines already and that's only a two minute snippet of what is in store for the hour and a half. 

'The Cured' is in Irish cinemas from April 20th.
