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
