    Inside

    ★★★

    When French cinema undertakes the path to a genre flick, it goes all-in with gore and gruesome content. À l'intérieur is pure sadism, having at its base the siege film that takes inspiration from slasher movies (in particular Carpenter's Halloween), and it mingles with the emotional topic of motherhood.

    What I felt is, this is a great movie, some sequences are genuinely breathtaking: the first "meeting" between Ellie (Thomasin McKenzie) and Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy) is stunning, with its mirror games and swinging gimmicks; also when the movie switches…
