À l'intérieur (Inside) Review
Written by: JoeTerror
WOW! And I thought “Dead Alive” was one of the bloodiest movies I had ever seen! This one takes that and like Emeril would say, “BAM”! And coming from two first time writers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, my hats off, or should I say heads off to both of them! This kept me on edge and was like a roller coaster from hell!
Without giving much away, the story is simple and to the point, which is a plus, and centers around Sarah (Alysson Paradis) who, after losing her husband, is home alone, pregnant, and visited by a mysterious woman (Beatrice Dalle), one late evening. The woman breaks into the home, attacks Sarah with a huge pair of scissors, and the night has just begun! Just thinking about it gives me the “willies”.
I have to admit though, as it progresses it does go way over the top, but it’s one helluva ride and by that point I just cringed and squirmed and took it in stride. Most all of the action takes place inside the home, ala “Them”, which gives it a claustrophobic feeling and makes it that much more intense. The look and feel of the film is terrific, dark and sinister, lots of shadows, and plenty of the red stuff!
If a movie can get under my skin (Requiem for a Dream, Clockwork Orange, Irreversible) then it’s done its job, and this did it once over! The French and Spanish, in my opinion, reign in the horror genre right now and push the envelope further then anyone in Hollywood. This is a must have for your bloody collection!
