"World Premiering at the ongoing SXSW Film Festival, “Youngsters, Victor, Dan and Tom skip school to wander around an abandoned movie set. They stumble upon a horrific vision : a woman in chains is dragged through the field by a man wearing a clown mask. The masked man catches a glimpse of the boys, who scramble to run away. But, before they can escape, they see something which has been hidden for years, something they were not meant to see. Terrified of having been seen by the masked man, the boys try to alert the police. Unfortunately, their past record of unruly behavior discredits them and the police do not follow up on their tipoff. That night someone breaks into their homes, seeking to eliminate them…one after another… They are going to meet Klarence…”
Chloe Coulloud, Lannick Gautry, Francis Renaud, and Beatrice Dalle (Inside) all star."
Among the Living 2014 (8.5/10) - Delighted to say that the directors of Inside deliver the goods again with an intense horror experience. It’s got a well-crafted cinematic feel that is a visual blend of their previous efforts and story-wise I liked its coming of age approach with young protagonists. There are a few flaws and logic issues but I’d rate it higher than Livid and up there with Inside.
I want to rewatch it already, hope its release isn't too far away. It's coming out on Amazon France October 15.
I'll also warn people to avoid the trailer, it gives away a bunch of money shots. Fortunately I didn't remember anything from it .
