Product Description

Four months after pregnant Sara loses her husband in a horrific auto accident, she is visited on Christmas Eve by a mysterious madwoman. Alone and desperate to save her unborn child, Sara fights to stay alive as each of her potential rescuers die at the womans sadistic hands.

Hailed by several critics as the first great French horror film this millennium, Inside opens on a gory note and stays true to the bloodfest throughout. But rather than using splatter-gore for comedic effect, as did young directing team Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo's predecessor, Hershell Gordon-Lewis, this duo timed their gore to build tragic suspense, scene after disgusting scene. The strength of Inside's plot is its simplicity, though the film is slow at first. Pregnant photojournalist, Sarah Scaragato (Alysson Paradis), has just lost her husband in a fatal car accident and is in recovery when her baby is due on Christmas Eve, in fact. Morose, she rejects friend and family visits, opting to stay home. A bewitched predator, played by Beatrice Dalle, senses Sarah's vulnerability and seizes upon it like a spider capturing prey in its web. The tale, woven around maternal psychosis, reveals Dalle's haunting preoccupation with stealing Scaragato's unborn baby. Each character who enters Sarah's house, the "war zone" as one doomed policeman puts it, encounters the wrath of two women fighting with mirror shards, knitting needles, scissors, hurled kitchen appliances, and even a homemade bayonette. Like the best horror thrillers about motherhood---Rosemary's Baby, Don't Look Now, Alien---Inside seizes ample symbolic opportunities to exhibit the primal obsession women have with babies. Even better, Inside invites feminist critique as do other female-centric horror films such as Ginger Snaps, whose plots not only include strong, vengeful female victims, but also sympathetic, criminal femme fatales. An entertaining "Making of Inside" featurette follows, revealing makeup and special effects techniques. Inside is for a specific audience; as scenes get redder and wetter, the squeamish may find it sickening---beware and enjoy. —Trinie Dalton

Well, I guess I can start off this review by saying that this is solid proof that Euro-Horror and it's director's are so far ahead of us Americans when it comes to the horror genre. While our studios are continuing to crank out remakes, and basically recycling stuff that have sat in the can for years - it are the European filmmakers who are out there whipping up new and imaginative ideas like they usually do.

From French Directing duo, Alexandre Bustillo, Julien Maury, comes INSIDE, a film that exploits a subject that surely has to be any mother's nightmare - having their child taken away from them. Now, I suppose that this would be hard for any mother, regardless the age of the child - but it has to be that much harder when the child is still in womb. In the film, we watch the main character go through the trauma of losing her husband to a crash. After the aftermath of the situation, she still keeps her sanity, just knowing that a piece of him remains, in the form of their unborn. What the Directors do here, is, well....wreck that sanity she has left, and they do it brutally. There is a mysterious woman hell bent on claiming Sarah's baby as her own. Whether she's have to kill Sarah, or just blatantly extract it from her womb, she is bound to finally become a mother herself.

INSIDE is definitely a thrill ride from the beginning to's one of those "you'll never see what's coming next" kind of films.

Having read a lot of reviews on this movie and a lot of the praise it's getting, I had to try this movie out. And boy am I glad I did.

Let me get this out of the way, I do not THINK you will like this movie if you do not like gore in your movie. Cause there is a lot of it in the end. It's not all gore though cause the movie does start off pretty scary also. There was one scene that seriously made me get an uneasy scared feeling. I don't want to ruin it though so I won't mention it here. There were also scenes that made me feel uneasy in a different way... as in a `turn your head and don't look at that gore' way.

Ok now that that is out there, the movie starts out with a car wreck that's already happened. We see a woman, Sarah, bloodied and barely alive. Her dead husband or boyfriend (I can't remember) is next to her in the passenger seat. Sarah is also pregnant.

We see Sarah later at the doc's office. She's getting her baby looked at and is told they'll be inducing labor the next day. She looks miserable, and it's because of her lost love, not her new kid, who I don't think she even cares about anymore.

That night she is visited by a stranger at the door. And we, the viewer, are visited by a really good scary/gory movie. I thought the mood of the movie turned over from a little boring to unnerving to suspenseful to shocking to crazy in exactly the right moments and it was done so well. The atmosphere of the house is so claustrophobic that I constantly found myself having a hard time breathing. You want her to run, but you know she cant just make a break for it for two reason. No room and a big prego belly.

Now there are some things that didn't make sense that might turn some people into haters. For instance...

I suppose I'll start the praise mildly by saying that this is probably the greatest horror film of the new century(Session 9, High Tension, and The Descent being it's only real competition)... to which you reply, "horror since 2000 has been terrible anyway so big deal." Okay then, what if I said that this is one of the greatest horror films... ever? Got your attention now I bet! Inside is the latest in a line of French horror movies that have provided the goods(the aforementioned High Tension, Them, and the upcoming Frontiers are a few) that American directors should take note of(instead they're too busy searching out their next film to remake and slap a PG-13 rating on). The premise here is a simple yet incredibly intense one; a pregnant woman very near expectancy, alone on a rainy night, with a madwoman who will stop at nothing to take her unborn baby from her. The who, how, and why just add to the unrelenting experience... but not before the buckets of blood rain down! The gorehounds out there will be far from dissapointed, in fact, our lead suffers a brutal attack from a BIG pair of scissors to get the film rolling nicely... leaving a nasty looking gash across her mouth and face for the rest of the film. Nearly every moment of bloodshed pushes the envelope of not only "good taste" but also brutality(the way it should be). The icing on the cake comes in the form of excellent direction that provides tension as well as some really cool effects(most notably what they do with sound during the kills). Frightening, gory, and disturbing are all words that fit this movie perfectly, and in the recent horror genre don't find themselves being used as much as most of us would like them to be. Make no mistake, this is far from "fun" horror... there are no sly in-jokes or moments of levity...Read more ›
