Editorial Reviews

In this graphically shocking and internationally acclaimed debut feature by Belgian writer/director Peter Van Hees, Eline Kuppens stars as a dedicated professional runner sidelined by an infection. But when she impulsively decides to move into her new boyfriend s high-rise apartment on the outskirts of Antwerp, she will discover that his perfect home may hold strange powers and even darker secrets: Their sexual passion becomes extreme. Her body undergoes bizarre changes. The previous tenant disappeared under mysterious circumstances. And deep within the building s dark basement lurks an ancient evil that waits to be reborn. Welcome to a neighborhood where obsession meets madness, history is written in blood, and modern horror is alive and well in a place called LEFT BANK.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome intelligent horror July 7, 2012
Format:DVD
Ok if your part of the saw crowd or slasher craze let me just warn you this is not for you. If like something new and intelligent and strangely sexy you will appreciate this film. This is a horror film for adults. This is a modern day rosemary's baby. Nothing fast or exciting happens in this film. The constant suspense building over the period of this film keeps you on the edge of your seat. The female lead will keep you hypnotized. Highly recommended for those who enjoy something unique in horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death And Resurrection... July 19, 2013
Format:DVD
The best way I can describe LEFT BANK without giving anything away, is to describe how the ending made me feel. I felt the same way I did at the end of ROSEMARY'S BABY, THE OMEN, HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, THE SHRINE, and THE WICKER MAN. The story concerns a track runner named Marie (Eline Kuppens), and her journey into darkness and ritualistic doom. She meets a man named Bobby (Matthias Schoenaerts)) who seems like a wonderful guy. As the tale unfolds, Marie is caught up in a mystery that leads only to terror. The atmosphere of LEFT BANK is gloomy throughout its running time. It starts out very subtly, growing increasingly claustrophobic, until it drops the finale on you like a blanket of lead! Then, when all seems lost, it throws a twist that I never saw coming! A supremely positive twist to an otherwise -relentlessly- bleak film. If you enjoy supernatural conspiracy movies w/ an unexpected bang, then LEFT BANK belongs in your collection... P.S.- Don't let anyone tell you about the ending! Then, watch it and see if it doesn't leave a mark (Dutch w/ subtitles)...

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtle and Realistic Horror Film from Belgium July 6, 2012
Format:DVD
If you're looking for gore and violence, this film isn't for you. What I liked about this bleak, belgian film are the subtlety and realism uncommon to horror movies about modern day sects and ancient cults. Suspense and uncertainty lead you slowly to the unexpected ending that shows us that we should never trust anybody and believe in the unbelievable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Foreign Thriller January 27, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you don't like slow-building suspense, you won't like this movie. If you do like it and love to reach a rewarding climax, then you probably will. The characters seem real enough and the movie always progresses forward and gives you small tastes of creepiness. I can see why people compare it to Rosemary's baby but don't expect a completely similar ending. I found the ending to be even better than I had expected. I always enjoy a well-made foreign film and never found the subtitles to be overbearing. It's not the best movie out there but it's got allot to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another overlooked film! March 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was great! For a foreign film, it kept me interested from the very beginning. I can see why some would want to compare 'Left Bank' to 'Rosemary's baby', but this movie really stands on its on. In the genre of horror where it seems like people are running out of ideas, 'Left Bank' is original enough to watch it over and over again. Dont pass this movie up, the slow burn of horror can be so much better than gore, guts, and excessive violence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept December 23, 2009
By Emily
Format:DVD
I absolutely love the concept of this movie. I also like how they focused more on character development and symbolism rather than in-your-face shocks or gore. The slow burn to the payoff is definitely worth it!
