INSIDE is Horror Insanity! The Dungeon Review!

Last night we watched the French horror film INSIDE. This film kicked Goregirl’s ass! Read the review!

The opening scene is inside one of two cars involved in a fatal crash. A very pregnant woman looks over at her dead husband and speaks his name as blood gurgles from her mouth. The credits flow over graphic ultrasound images and we are introduced to Sarah, the survivor of the car crash four months later. It is the day before she is to give birth. What follows is complete and utter insanity. Not only is this film full of brooding and intensely suspenseful moments but the insidepostergore factor is through the roof. A perfect mix of tension, suspense and graphic gory death. Watching a very pregnant woman being terrorized is nasty enough but there are actually moments in the film where they have the audacity to show the action from the fetus point of view. We think that is wonderfully evil! It is not for the squeamish and certainly not for those who are not fans of the horror genre. But for those of us who have watched hours of obnoxiously bad tripe, when a film like this comes along it is a beautiful shiny beacon of Horror light! There is only one ever so brief scene between Sarah and a cop near the end that I just thought was out of place and it didn’t work. Pure, bloody brilliance!! I was going to include the trailer but I think that it would be so much more delicious if you have absolutely no idea what is coming.

      Inside is amazing and Martyrs was simply BRILLIANT! The French have been kicking my ass the last several years with some really outstanding gory contributions!
