The Month of Horror Day 23: Inside

Basement contributor Matt Bellamy has taken it upon himself to watch and review at least one horror movie a day for the month of October . . . because he's awesome that way! And tonight Bellamy heads to France for a film no pregnant woman should ever see.

I don't know what it is about the French over the last ten years or so but somebody must have pissed them off good because they have been unleashing some of the best and most graphic horror for a solid decade now. 'Inside' is the debut film from filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, and did they ever charge onto the scene big time with this one! "Extreme" would be a good word to describe it, I could only recommend this to viewers with a strong stomach, who aren't offended easily (if you are then horror is not the genre for you), and who are looking for something to shake them up. The story follows a pregnant woman who has set up a hospital appointment for the following day to give birth but that night she is visited by someone with plans of their own, plans to extract that baby by any means necessary. Violence and bloodshed are not shyed away from at all, in fact they are ramped up to such extreme levels to become truly upsetting, hence why it was blocked from a theatrical release in North America. My favourite horror of the last ten years but viewer beware, you'll be shell shocked by the end.
