Xavier Gens is the French director responsible for the quite brilliant and frightening horror, Frontier(s), and here at HCF we are eagerly waiting for his latest film, The Divide, to be unleashed. Our creator, Bat, will hopefully get to see the film this weekend as it premiers here in the UK at the Grimm Up North 3 festival in Manchester. The rest of us will have to wait for an official release date, but let’s not be too disappointed, there is a brand new poster to enjoy, and we have it for you right here. In the fashion of keeping your interest levels high on this one, I have included the trailer which I can only hope you have already seen, so take this as a gentle reminder that this film is gonna be great!
In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers-all tenants of a New York high rise apartment-escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
