Inside (À L’Intérieur) (2007)
Director: Alexandre Bustillo, Julien Maury
Main Stars: Alysson Paradis, Jean-Baptiste Tabourin, Claude Lule, Beatrice Dalle
Storyline: A pregnant woman is tormented by an unknown woman who wants her unborn child
Review (Spoils): Sarah and Matthieu Scarangelo (Alysson Paradis, Jean-Baptiste Tabourin) get involved in a head on car crash. This leads Sarah alone pregnant as the only survivor. 4 months later she is still grieving the lost of her husband and is dealing with massive depression. One night a strange woman appears at her door to ask to use the phone and tries to work her way into the apartment. The woman throughout the night torments Sarah and her unborn child and kills anyone who tries to help Sarah and get in her way.
Plot is lacking in this one really, it started good but the reasoning behind it all kind of fell apart. We have a ton of blood and some serious graphic gore when it comes her needs to have this child. The stalker aka La Femme (Beatrice Dalle) is one nasty lady and we have stabbings, lots of blood, cutting, balls stabbings, exploding heads and even some nasty burns. This film goes over the top when it comes to gore and blood. Plus we have the sexy Alysson Paradis.
Rating: Something was missing with this film, not sure if it was the lack of explanation of why La Femme wanted the child or maybe it was a translation thing. I just did not enjoy this film as much as Haute Tension even though the blood spray and gore was there. Alysson Paradis was awesome and a very attractive woman and kept me interested as I rooted for her. But like I said the lack of background on the killer hurt the film for me.
