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

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 ›

This is one of the most stomach-churning movies I've ever seen, but if you like gore, this movie's the best! The whole movie basically takes place in a house, but it's so intense that you're on the edge of your seat the entire time. It's rare to have a woman be the villain, but this woman is psychotic and more frightening than most male villains. Not for the squeemish, but definitely worth a look.

À l'intérieur (2007/8)

'À l'intérieur' is the much-talked-about release from first-time writer/director Alexandre Bustillo (the man behind the upcoming 2009 'Hellraiser' reboot). The film, a brutal one to say the least, focuses on a pregnant woman who becomes the subject of a mysterious and violent stalker. Moving from a startling open scene with a violently damaged foetus to a rather bloody mess of a fatal car accident which seriously injures our star, Sarah (played by Alysson Paradis, sister of Johnny Depp's partner, Vanessa) and kills the father, Matthieu (Jean-Baptiste Tabourin).

The actual plot starts four months later (which seems a bit surprising as Sarah's baby bump was already looking like a baby hill at the time of the wreck, and she's just now arriving near her due date). The disturbed Sarah, an action photographer for the local journal, suffers from some seriously odd dreams involving vomiting up copious amounts of some milky substance, CGI black cats and birthing her child, err, incorrectly . It's after one of these nightmares that Sarah meets the terrifying Femme (Béatrice Dalle) at her, Sarah's, front door. Sarah, perturbed by the oddities of the meeting and La Femme's resistance to leave, phones the police. Here, we learn one important thing: French police ACTUALLY care! In most American films (and real-life situations), a late-night distress call about a nuisance at your door would usually result in one officer driving by the house hours too late. In France, however, three cops arrive quickly, do a full check of the premises, AND a follow up. Now THAT is civil service!
