prelude to vol.1 issue.1 of SVLLY(wood) Magazine!
vintage hammer aesthetics, trailblazing noirs, neurotic heroines, lesbian vampires, blaxploitations, rape revenge,…
Four months after the death of her husband, a woman on the brink of motherhood is tormented in her home by a strange woman who wants her unborn baby.
Fuck!!!!! Kinda like a remake of Home Alone but instead of Macaulay Culkin you have a pregnant chick and instead of Chris Columbus it's directed by Satan.
A genuinely effective & relentlessly violent feature to come out from the new wave of French horror and certainly ranking amongst the most disturbing & bloodiest films ever made, Inside is a prime example of extreme cinema which marks the return of pure unadulterated horror on the silver screen & manages to accomplish all the things it promises without entirely discarding the core elements that makes a film work.
Opening with a brief prologue covering a car accident, the story of Inside concerns a young pregnant lady named Sarah; the sole survivor of the car crash which killed her husband. Deciding to stay at home on Christmas Eve, things are set in motion for an eventful night of torment & terror when a mysterious…
Hoop-Tober 2.0 Film # 31
Fucking hell!! This was one palm sweatingly intense 80 minutes, I've no idea how it's taken me so long to watch this, I've seen most of the other French horror films that came out around the same time and the dvd has sat on my self for years now but for some reason I've never watched it until now.
A visceral assault that hooks you in after the first minute and keeps you one the edge of your seat until the credits role, brutal and unflinching in it's portrayal of violence, there were times I was literally shielding my eyes from the terror of what was unfolding on the screen.
Alysson Paradis stars as…
The first 45 minutes or so of Inside border on horror perfection. Without delving too deep into a backstory, we are presented with a simple yet extremely horrific premise. Had they managed to maintain that level this could perhaps have been one of the best genre films ever, but unfortunately I was left staring at the ugly afterbirth of a third act making everything that went before it a distant memory.
The opening is tense and very disconcerting. We're not given much in the way of character development, but who cares. There's a pregnant woman and an insane Beatrice Dalle trying to get to the baby she's carrying. That's an automatic investment right there. I was totally gripped by the…

Fuck this movie. And everyone involved in it.
Sometimes, when I'm watching a really great movie, I think "imagine if now that's close to the end, they pulled off something so absurdly uncompromised, ridiculous and shitty that'd ruin the whole movie like they were just shitting with our faces?", and there comes Inside and does exactly that. During 85% of this movie, I had it at 4.5, it's tremedously directed, the make-up work and practical effects are no less than perfect, the script is solid as fuck, the photography is haunting, the acting is off the charts amazing, the soundtrack is great, the gore…
Never forget that time when me and 5 friends had to spend the night in jail and watched this. Great memories!!! I love this movie so much!!!!
And the police officer said this was the most disturbing and disgusting thing he had even seen. Even worse than his wife giving birth. I think that says a lot.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Terrific movie. I absolutley love this movie.The movie was intense as heck, i was on the edge if my seat throughout the whole movie. This movie is graphic and it really utilizes the blood in the movie. It isnt there for shock value, its showing you how crazy this woman is. The ending where the girl who wants the baby got the baby, thought it was a bit cliche, and predictable. but overall, i still love this movie.
Hoop-tober 3.0 - #30 of 33 - Decade (2000's)
This film has been touted by many an internet list as "extreme" and brutal. I'll give it that on both counts, but it just wasn't that great a movie altogether. While many scenes using practical effects were incredibly visceral (pun intended?), the frequent use of CGI kept distracting me because it was bad CGI. Not "Birdemic" bad, but not good enough to not pull me out of the scene.
I guess part of my disappointment, too, is that nearly all of the "extreme" French horror films I've watched (High Tension, Frontiers, Martyrs) blew me away. This did not. Glad to have seen it to mark it off on the list, but I have zero plans of watching it again.
WHAT TWISTED SOUL MADE THIS MOVIE?
this was EXTREME HOLY SHIT FUCK
EW. HONESTLY JUST EW. this was the most insanely stupid, disgusting, and mind-boggling 80 minutes of my life. it started off pretty good, but then devolved into idiocy and shock&gore for its own sake. the decisions characters made were MIND BOGGLINGLY stupid, it just got increasingly gross and dumb until the last 15 minutes which somehow crossed over the line from kind of bloody and disgusting to offensively idiotic (the cop?? the flamethrower shit??? the fucking c-section ending in the baby somehow still being alive?!?!?!) no. just no.
look. i love horror movies. i appreciate gore when there's a good reason for it, and sometimes just cause it's nasty fun. this was just icky and dumb. wow. i don't often hate movies, but this was. yikes
gets one star instead of 1/2 because beatrice dalle has an amazingly scary face. if only she could have been the villain in a better movie
Just as batshit as everyone says. This film as a whole is good - but once Sarah starts fighting back, it's astounding. The final act is a flawless victory.
Oh... this isn't the movie about a young girls emotions at all...
I think the fact that this movie is in French has led people to believe that it is sophisticated instead of stupid. It is stupid. Stupide, even. All of the characters commit the horror movie sin of doing the exact opposite of what they should be doing. You can't even explain it away by saying they were in shock, their actions just make no sense. Also, if this movie is any indication, French police are kind of terrible at their jobs (not that that can't be said for members of authority in any nation.) The gore and effects are great, aside from the fetus-cam and the horrendous fire at the end, which I actually laughed out loud at. But ten minutes or so of cool effects doesn't make up for the rest of the lackluster film.
A brutal and reckless continuation of the New French Extremity.
