‘Among the Living’ UK Trailer Delivers ‘Texas Chainsaw’-esque Brutality (Exclusive)

Among the Living

It’s been so long that I completely forgot about Among the Living (review), the foreign slasher from Inside and Livide directing duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.

The duo even went off and filmed a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel that’s currently in post-production.

While we wait for that, and their French nightmare Livide, UK audiences finally get to see Among the Living on March 7, 2016 thanks to Metrodome. Sorry, no U.S. date has been set.

As you can see in our exclusive trailer premiere, Among the Living is like a mix of Stand By Me, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and It. The footage teases an 80’s atmosphere with the children, but it descends into Texas Chainsaw-like madness by the final frame.

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.

It has its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival

    this movie was a HUGE disappointment. the movie doesn’t know whether it wants to be a whimsical-ish GOONIES-esque coming of age story between 3 boys or an actual outright horror movie. just a forewarning….MOST OF THE KILLS HAPPEN OFF SCREEN!! i’m not even kidding. it really seems like Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo ran out of money so they couldn’t afford most of the special FX shots/kills. also the editing in the “big” finale/showdown is fucking atrocious. it’s nearly impossible to see what is actually happening.

    INSIDE is one of my all time faves and LIVID was ok (not great and not anywhere near as good as INSIDE was) and i was so excited for AMONG THE LIVING. i’m still shocked that the same duo who made INSIDE also did AMONG. oh i was also really bummed that fantastic Beatrice Dalle was only in the movie for about 4 minutes at the very beginning. to say she is “starring” in the movie is completely misleading. just keep expectations very low and you may like the movie…..maybe.
