Back in the early 2000’s, the big horror genre that everyone was talking about was the French Extreme cinema. Basically it was an over-the-top subgenre of horror film that was called back the shocking days of drive-in cinema but with more realistic and less grindhouse in its approach. One of these films became an instant classic. That film was called INSIDE (2007).
Sarah (Alysson Paradis) was in an awful car accident that leaves her a widow. Pregnant and all alone, she keeps busy with her office job and her home chores. On Christmas Eve, she doesn’t accept either her mother’s or her boss’s offers to spend the holiday with either. While police are busy with city riots, a woman knocks on her door asking to use the phone. When Sarah refuses using the excuse that her husband is sleeping, the woman says that she knows he is dead.
The film also stars French legend Beatrice Dalle. Co-directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo off a script by Bastillo, the film received rave reviews for those who could endure it. A patreon pick by listeners, your co-hosts take a look at this cult classic and gives their thoughts.
