‘[REC]’ Team Remaking French Horror, ‘Inside’


Never underestimate a mother’s protective fury!

[REC] writers Jaume Balagueró and Manu Diez, Kidnapped director Miguel Ángel Vivas and producers Adrián Guerra and Núria Valls of Nostromo Pictures (Buried, Red Lights) are joining forces on thriller Inside, ScreenDaily learned ahead of AFM.

Looking to replicate the commercial success of female-driven genre titles from Spain including The Orphanage, The Others, [REC] and Mama, the film is a remake of 2007 French horror À L’Intérieur.

“Inside follows a recently widowed mother-to-be living in an isolated new home who receives a most unwelcome visitor: a predatory woman who will stop at nothing to snatch her unborn child. Trapped and disorientated, the young mother must unleash all her reserves of strength to protect her baby and survive the night.

Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo directed the original Inside (À L’Intérieur), which we here at Bloody consider to be one of the greatest slasher films ever made. It’s shocking that it’s being remade before Dimension could ever put the film on Blu-ray or even release the unrated version featuring several more minutes of gore removed for their Blockbuster release (remember those guys?)

Embankment Films will launch sales on the project at the upcoming AFM with the production aiming for a February 2016 shoot. Casting on the film is underway.

“Jaume had this great idea for the remake and, with Manu, they’ve reimagined the original film as a very classy and tense thriller,” Embankment’s Tim Haslam said. “With two great female characters fighting to be a mother, Miguel Ángel brings his distinct vision, setting up the film as a tense, sustained set piece that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats, for sure.”

While Kidnapped is a taught thriller, his follow up, Extinction, starring Matthew Fox, is awful, awful, awful. There’s no way he’s going to deliver something better than the 2007 masterpiece that’s a must-see for horror fans. Speaking of, if you haven’t seen it, make sure it’s on the top of your Halloween stack for this coming weekend…

    i actually loved Miguel Ángel Vivas’s EXTINCTION. i also love INSIDE. i’m very irked that they are remaking it but who knows, maybe the Spanish INSIDE will turn out good.

  • First Martyrs, now Inside………..fucking A

  • Brey Compton Arriaga

    So, I watched this movie two christmases ago and I gotta say I was totally blown away by this film, it was so freaking creepy, eerie, terrifying and so tense! Loved the gore, I almost couldn’t stand it and it gave me a little chills, so I’m hoping they’re bringing only the best for this remake and they truly make a good film to honor this masterpiece! NO LIMITS ON GORE AND SUSPENSE, PLEASE!!! ♥

    So is this to be a Spanish remake or are they doing this in English? If it’s in Spanish then it’s not going to help all the North Americans who don’t like to read subtitles.
    I’m glad I won the Unrated version of this. Never seen the cut up one. One of my favourites.

    • J Jett

      Boonraiser, i was thinking & wondering the same thing!

    • Christensen

      doing it in english apparently

  • Christensen

    so they will basically be watering down the masterpiece that was the original and turning it into some half assed “thriller”? the original was fine just the way it was, and the horror elements are what made the film. remakes should be improvements and additions to the dated version, not lazy downgrades. what a bad idea.

  • I almost saw this movie but I’ve heard SPOILERS SPOILERS
    that the woman in the end gets her baby cut out of her with scissors, don’t know I could take a movie like that.

    Once again…. don’t fuck with perfection!

    Inside is a great watch, more so during Xmas rather than Halloween because the movie takes place on Xmas eve. Good luck in casting someone who can top Beatrice Dalle. She was amazingly terrifying without even having to speak. This Spanish teaser poster looks like something you’d see to promote a Lifetime network movie (By women, for women).

  • awful teaser poster with a Jessica Alba look alike.

  • Julio C. Sánchez

    As Spaniard I think this is not a very good idea. I love the people involved, from the producer, to the screewriter and the director. Vivas did a great job with his home invasion thriller KIDNAPPED. But INSIDE was not even release here in spain, only in festivals. No one has the guts to release it and even in france or the US its success was not big, just in small circuits. So, like someone said above, What’s the point in ramaking a film recognized for its brutality if you’re going to watering down? INSIDE it’s a masterpiece in raw horror, almost a miracle, brutal and so well done.

    What a load of horse-shit!

  • Andre Voorhees

    remake is shit

  • James

    Was extinction really that bad?
