While there’s still no news on a U.S. release for Kidnapped and Extinction director Miguel Ángel Vivas‘ Inside, his remake of Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s À l’intérieur, the film begins its international run today, and with it comes an English-language trailer.
Vivas looks to have kept the spirit of the French film, only less bloody. I still get that Halloween vibe, but I don’t think Laura Harring is nearly as threatening as Béatrice Dalle was in the original film. And even though it doesn’t quite look like a splatterfest, it does appear to be incredibly suspenseful. Inside is either going to surprise us, or we’re going to look back at this trailer and say, “Man, they fooled us all.” Hopefully, we don’t have another Martyrs on our hands…
With screenplay by Jaume Balagueró ([REC]) and Vivas’ usual collaborator Manu Díez, the remake stars Rachel Nichols (The Loop, Tokarev, Fantastic Four) and Laura Harring (Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Punisher). It’s an Adrián Guerra and Núria Valls (Nostromo Pictures) production.
“Pregnant and depressed, a young widow tries to rebuild her life following the fateful car accident where she lost her husband and partially lost her hearing. Now, about to go into labor, she’s living in a remote house in the suburbs when, one Christmas night, she receives an unexpected visit from another woman with a devastating objective: to rip the child she’s carrying from inside her. But a mother’s fury when it comes to protecting her child should never be underestimated. Rachel Nichols and Laura Harring play the two main roles in this brutal and bloody hand-to-hand combat.”
Inside is produced by Nostromo Pictures, a Barcelona-based company that’s behind Rodrigo Cortés’ films Buried and Red Lights; Grand Piano, that opened the 2013 Sitges Film Festival, or the box office sensation Palmeras en la Nieve. It has the thrillers El Guardián Invisible and Contratiempo well under way.
