Xavier Gens’ (Frontier(s)) The Divide is a horror that has been near the top of my must-see list for quite sometime now, and the lucky fans in the US have less than a month to wait to see it. The film arrives in selected cinemas 13th January. The UK waits with baited breath for a release date, and hopefully it is not too far off now. While we wait, all we can do is share with you little teasers that keep creeping through for the film, and today we found four new stills from the film. Check them out below, and click here for all previous news.
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 members begin to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle and tensions flare, 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.
The Divide features a large and diverse cast featuring such icons of horror and sci-fi as Lauren German (Hostel Part 2), Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens) and Milo Ventimiglia (NBC’s “Heroes”) as well as Courtney B. Vance (Final Destination 5, The Hunt for Red October), Ashton Holmes (CW’s “Nikita”, A History of Violence) and Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction).
