Our favorite tipster, Fabien M., has shared with us the first ever footage from the hotly anticipated Among the Living, the latest French horror entry from Inside and Livide‘s Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.
Looking like a mix of Stand By Me, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and It, the French trailer is jam-packed with bizarre imagery, violence and gore. The best part is that you don’t even need to speak French to enjoy the insanity! I also enjoy the 80’s feel, and the fact that it looks about as bloody as their first two films.
Hopefully we get to see this soon, and not have wait an eternity like we are for the underrated Livide.
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.
