Jump Scare Rating: Zombie drama The Cured starts slowly but turns into a more standard action/horror movie towards the end. There are definitely a few jumpy moments in the second half but most are half shocks (such as loud gunshots or sudden movements by the zombies) rather than fully fledged jump scares.
