AMONG THE LIVING (2014) [feature]

(MIFF 2014 )

"The fear in the room was palpable as audience gasps and audible cringes fed off one another … one of the few real horror experiences of today." – Twitch

After skipping school to go exploring, three boys stumble across an abandoned movie set where they discover a man dragging a bloodied woman in chains out of a car. Unable to convince anyone of what they've seen, the friends return to their homes only to discover that whoever it was has definitely seen them …

Horror auteurs Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside, MIFF 2008) return to their bloodiest and thought-provoking best as adolescent curiosity unleashes a nightmare of violence and retribution. Channelling ‘80s teen movie nostalgia and then wringing it through the lens of hardline horror, this is a film of vast thrills and unsettling consequences, where the terror we know may be preferable to that we don't.

"Combines Stand By Me with a splash of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre … refreshingly unpredictable." – Fear Net
