Xavier Gens (Frontiers) is getting set to unleash his apocalyptic horror, The Divide and in preparation a whole bunch of new clips have arrived online. Some of the clips are a little hard to stomach, but all show off just how intense this shocker intends to be. Arriving in the US in selected cinemas on 13th January, here i the UK we can all keep our fingers crossed that we have a release date soon. The film looks superb, and Michael Biehn looks to be relishing his role, and it is good to see him back in such a prominent position. Enjoy the clips, but be warned some of the footage is NSFW.

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).
