CNC Blocks ‘The Pack’ From Screening at Cannes!

We just learned of some interesting information as the CNC (French National Film Board) censorship committee has “required the prohibition of the open and free screening of [The Pack].” While the film will still be shown to press and buyers, the public screening has been officially canceled because “the film might have a strong restriction when released in theaters.” In Franck Richard debut feature, while driving through a northern rural wasteland, Charlotte picks up Max, a hitchhiker. They stop in a truck-stop restaurant run by a woman named Spack. When Max disappears in the bar, Charlotte decides to investigate and things take a turn for the worse. Charlotte finds herself in Spack’s gruesome human farm, with other prisoners, semi-alive or dead, reared for their blood to feed Spack’s “kids”- a pack of blood thirsty ghouls, who come out of the earth each night to be fed fresh human blood.
