Posted by phlambler on July 30, 2012
Our friends at STUDIOCANAL are releasing their latest horror feature in August. Written and directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, Livid, starring Beatrice Dalle, will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and EST.
Following on from Maury and Bustillo’s critically acclaimed film Inside, we’re eager to have a little sneak preview of Livid before its official release on 13 August. We’ll be bringing you our full review over the coming weeks but, in the meantime, why not check out the blurb below:
Already screened to great praise at festivals, including Frightfest’s Halloween all nighter, Livid is pitched as a scary and visually stylish slice of gothic horror. Lucie (Chloé Coullaud) is on her first day as an in-home caregiver in a gloomy seaside town in Brittany, assigned to the estate of a Mrs Jessel.
Mrs. Jessel lies in a cerebral coma, by herself, in her large desolate house. Lucie learns from her trainer that Mrs. Jessel, once a dance instructor who lost her only daughter years ago, has hidden a treasure in her home that she’s holding onto as part of her final will.
Upon retelling this story to her boyfriend, William (Félix Moati), the two along with William’s brother, Ben (Jérémy Kapone), decide to go to the woman’s home late on Halloween night and find the treasure for themselves. As the house reveals itself to be increasingly peculiar, their hunt for the Jessel treasure leads them into a horrifying supernatural series of events that will change Lucie’s life forever.
