Sub-Genre: Home Invasion, Survival.
From the stomach-churning opening credits, to its disturbing finale, Inside is one of the most shacking, brutal, and horrific movies that we've ever seen.
Very, very few movies have ever disturbed us as much as Inside (À l'intérieur) does. The idea of an insane woman chasing a pregnant woman around a dark house, with the twisted intention of cutting the baby out of her stomach so that she can have it for herself, is just about as terrifying as a movie plot can get. What makes it worse is how directors Bustillo & Maury use an exploitation-level of brutality and gore to help that story unfold in the most shocking of ways.
The way that Beatrice Dalle's La Femme stalks through the shadows of the house like a ghost is spooky as hell, and the way that she swiftly doles out violent punishment to any who stand in the way of her goal is shockingly horrific. She's one of the best movie villains of the New Millennium.
As excellent as it was, we felt tainted after watching Inside. If you have yet to see this modern-day classic, then you owe it to yourself to seek it out and give it a watch.
See you tomorrow with #5!
