The director’s of the brutal yet brilliant Inside are back with a new shocker. Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury have a new film, and now finally a new distributor, Dimension Films. Yes, Dimension films have picked up North American rights to the horror which is due for release in its native France November this year. Hopefully this means a UK distribution will soon be picked up too. Let’s face it, Inside was one of the finest horrors of the last decade and if the director’s even manage half of the superb work on offer in Inside, then we are in for a treat!
Rumour has it the director’s were originally working on a script for the Hellraiser remake, with the intention to direct but neither director’s or Dimenson could ever come to an agreement, and so Hellraiser went to someone else and is apparently a bit rubbish. Anyway, Bustillo and Maury went off and made Livid (Livide) instead. The rather brilliant and unsettling poster follows this synopsis:
It’s young Lucy’s first day as a trainee in-house caregiver. She visits Mrs Jessel, an old woman who lies in cerebral coma, by herself, in her large desolate house. Learning by accident that Mrs Jessel, a former dance teacher of repute, supposedly possesses a treasure somewhere in the house, Lucy and friends William and Ben decide to search the house in the hope of finding it. At night, they get into the house, which reveals itself to be increasingly peculiar. Their hunt for Mrs Jessel’s treasure leads them into a horrifying supernatural series of events that will change Lucy forever…
