Xavier Gens is the French director responsible for the awesome shocker, Frontier(s), and in case you haven’t been following our stories, he is back with a quite stunning looking apocalyptic horror, The Divide. Bloody Disgusting scored an image gallery, and we have it here for you to enjoy, and it is breathtaking.
The film is scheduled for a US release on 13th January, and the UK will follow shortly after that, and this film just cannot come soon enough. Written by Karl Mueller and Eron Sheean, the film features an impressive cast including Michael Biehn, Lauren German, Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Eklund, Rosanna Arquette, Ashton Holmes, Courtney B. Vance and Jennifer Blanc. Since the trailer is so damned brilliant, I have included it here again for your viewing pleasure:
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.
