Terror comes calling.
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…
Who are you?
I love horror movies but every now and then I'll come across a film that got rave reviews and it just doesn't click with me. It happens most often with modern horror films. Here we are at that point once again with my latest attempt at watching one from the new wave of extreme French horror.
The debut of writer/directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury is actually quite impressive and some parts brilliant. The first act of the film could be used as a step by step guide on how to build atmosphere and suspense in a modern horror film. There's lots of subtle frights along with disturbing imagery.
The major hook of the film is…
Bloody baby fever!
A distasteful (and inexplicably overrated) French slasher that begins intriguing but soon gets excessively vicious, outrageous and disgusting, trying at all costs to be polemic and throwing us in a brainless flood of gushing blood and gratuitous gore.

Te tensa como un palo, pero demasiada carne para tan poco relleno.
Such a terrible, terrible horror movie. Don't waste your time.
I went in expecting a home invasion film. Instead I got a gore fest that instantly reminded me of High Tension, a film I don't care for either.
The film had perhaps the worst soundtrack I have ever heard. At first I thought it was the sound of a tool the killer was using but that didn't make sense as that was scissors.
The film is bloody. I can enjoy bloody. What I don't enjoy is inconsistency within the film and where blood is on a person. It's a minor detail but it's bothersome nonetheless. Also, blood dries and on your warm skin it will dry faster, it shouldn't glisten like a wet rock.
The film just jumps the shark…
So gruesomely good
This is one hard movie to watch. Visceral violence at it's finest. And the story is interesting and it helps that it's well acted.
A little of a slow born. But well worth it!
Extremely uncomfortable... in a good way.
Wow. This is bloody.
However, I've become wildly and irrationally impacient when it comes to fucking characters making stupid decisions or not being precaucious enough.
