When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure.
Best Quotes from Trailer:
Voice: There is a sickness inside us rising, like the bile that leaves that bitter taste at the back of our throats. It’s there in every one of you seated around the table. Only when we know what ails us can we hope to find cure.
[after reading letter from their company’s CEO]
Deputy Director: What do you make of that?
Lockhart: Clearly he’s lost his mind.
Mr. Wilson: Our thoughts exactly.
Deputy Director: [to Lockhart] We’d like you to go to Switzerland and bring Mr. Pembroke back to us.
Volmer: What we offer here is a process of purification away from the pressures of the modern world.
Dr. Brennan: You plan to take Mr. Pembroke back with you.
Lockhart: Is that a problem?
Dr. Brennan: He’s a patient, not a prisoner.
Hannah: Are you here for the cure?
Lockhart: No. actually I was just leaving.
Hannah: No one ever leaves.
Volmer: Welcome back, Mr.Lockhart.
[after suffering from a car accident]
Volmer: [to Lockhart] Sense of concussion, depleted immune system. I would like to recommend a treatment.
Volmer: [to Lockhart] Think of it as a cleansing of the mind as much as the body. Some patients experience visions, but rest assured it’s just the toxins leaving the system.
[we see Lockhart is in a giant water tank]
Volmer: Are you ready, Mr. Lockhart?
[Lockhart nods his head and the lid of the water tank is closed]

Nurse: [to Lockhart] There’s a terrible darkness here.
Enrico: That was two hundred years ago.
Lockhart: This is happening now.
Lockhart: [to Hannah] You said no one ever leaves, what happens to them? I saw the bodies!
Volmer: You see it yourself, you’re not a well man.
Lockhart: You’re trying to make me think I’m insane.
Hannah: What’s happening to me?
Nurse: It’s all part of the cure.
Lockhart: There is no cure!
Volmer: Accept the diagnosis and you will see it’s wonderful here.
