French horror, when done right, is flawlessand near unbeatable and anyone who has seen Inside will know that those two director’s have some serious potential, and when word first reached us about their new horror Livd (Livide) we were more than excited. For months Livid has been in the back of our minds, will it fullfill its promise, will it be as good as Inside, does French horror still have that edge. Well my dear friends, those questions and more have been answered today as the trailer for Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Muary’s Livid has arrived! Sadly the trailer is in French without any English subtitles, but the traielr is so good you don’t need the subtitles, you can pretty mcuh figure out that some seriously bad and frightening stuff is going on, so please, enjoy it until the subtitled trailer arrives.
The film stars Loic Berthezene, Serge Cabon, Chloe Coulloud and Beatrice Dalle. A whole bunch of posters were revealed last week and you can see those and all out previous articles on the film here
