Among the Living
Directed by Alexandre Bustillo, Julien Maury
In the grisly third feature from Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (the duo behind French carnage breakout INSIDE), three boys skip school to wander around an abandoned film studio. Bad move. The trio soon stumble upon a horrific vision: a woman in chains being dragged by a man in a clown mask. Evil Bozo catches a glimpse of the boys, who try to run away. But, before they can escape, they see something hidden for years - which they were not meant to see. That night someone breaks into their homes, seeking to eliminate them…one after another. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE. Contains violence and gore.
Youngsters, Victor, Dan and Tom skip school and stumble upon a horrific vision.
Cast: Anne Marivin, Theo Fernandez, Francis Renaud
Why all the bad reviews? I really liked this one. The kids were great. On the gory side, but I wouldn't have expected it any other way. Believe me, there's plenty of crap out there, but this one is pretty good!
Kind of stupid, but it's ok.
Not that great. Enjoyable if you don't think about it too much.
No plot. Terrible execution, and characters that are just flat out stupid.
These guys still haven't topped Inside, but Among the Living is another winner; an almost unbearably suspenseful descent into terror. Not as gory or violent as I expected, but that didn't matter all that much.
