The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has spawned several sequels and remakes. Since 2012, a prequel has been started, which will deal with Leatherface's early life. The film has been be titled, appropriately, Leatherface. And now, an early graphic has been developed for this feature. That graphic can be found here. French directors Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo are helming this project. These two directors developed the very graphic À l'intérieur (Inside). They will co-direct this prequel, which takes place before the original 1974 film. Similar to early scenes of John Carpenter's Halloween, Leatherface will show this iconic character's early life and progression into a life of murder. As well, the early graphic was released at Efm Berlin. So, the poster was first shown in a magazine. The concept poster states: "The Monsters Within."

We could go on forever with the list of honorable mentions in this category. Films like The Desperate Hours, Kidnapped and High Tension (Haute Tension) come immediately to mind. As do Panic Room, You're Next, The Purge, The Aggression Scale and Funny Games. Hell, even Macaulay Culkin got terrorized by Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci in Home Alone. Some on the list are traditional assaults and some are more unique, but we think we've got it narrowed down to...

As usual, we'll start out with some honorable mentions, and we certainly have some remarkable moms to speak about. We'll start with Estelle Collingwood (played by Cynthia Carr) in the original Last House on the Left. Only a mother's love could drive a person to bite a guy's Johnson off as an act of revenge!

Review: Livide (Bustillo and Maury)

Five years ago director duo Bustillo and Maury unleashed À l'Intérieur onto the general public, a film that may be described as one of the most suspenseful and gory films of the past decade and one of the highlights of the French horror wave. Needless to say Bustillo and Maury's Livide faced extremely high expectations, expectations that their new is not going to fulfill. Not because it's a bad film, but because it set out to be a different film altogether.Bursting onto the scene and making a (cult) hit film is not an easy thing to do, but following up on that first hit with something that answers to the expectations of your fans is nigh impossible. And the longer it takes for your second...

Fantastic Fest Review: Alexandre Bustillo/Julien Maury's Horror 'Livid'

It's always exciting to see a fresh take on something you've witnessed before, when a filmmaker—or in Livid's case, filmmakers —toys with mythology, concocts a clever way of expressing that vision, and scares you senseless with what they've crafted. For Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, that fresh take on an old concept was done near flawlessly with the 2007 home invasion movie À l'intérieur (Inside). With Livid, they do it again, but the great thing about this is you don't even know going in what old clothes they're taking out of the wardrobe to dust off and make presentable again. Nor will I be revealing what that idea is. Regardless, it's safe to say that Livid is inventive, smart atmospheric, and on several occasions damn scary. Lucie, played by Chloé Coulloud, is on her first day as an in-home caregiver when she visits Mrs. Jessel's estate. Mrs. Jessel lies

Low-Budget Horror 'Life Zone' Pushes Pro-Life Message... Sorta

Gird your loins and peep the trailer for "The Life Zone," the world's first horror movie to push a pro-life agenda. In "Zone," three women wake up in a room where they're being held hostage. No, they haven't been trawling Eastern European hostels for good times or playing with Jigsaw; they were kidnapped while waiting to get abortions.

Too bad for them; they're being forced by a gravelly voice guy with impressive eyebrows (a priest, perhaps?) and a ruthless female doctor to stay pregnant and give birth. The room looks like a leftover set from "Saw," except with walls covered in religious paintings and symbols. Maybe writer Ken Del Vecchio has been listening to "Papa Don't Preach" a little too much?

Speaking of Del Vecchio, he's done a couple of, well, interesting films that have political overtones, such as "O.B.A.M. Nude" and "Talking Points Memo," as well as something that

'Inside' an Extreme Horror Movie

Many people claim to love horror movies. A lot of them enjoy the idea of being scared, while others dig on scary monsters and of course there are the gore fans.

We'd say that the 2007 French film 'Inside' (review here) surpasses many of those "safe" boundaries for horror movie enjoyment. Every so often a brutal film such as 'Inside' comes along and really reaches deep into the soul of its viewer and yanks at some rather dark psychological issues.

If you've seen the film you already know what we're talking about. For those who haven't and really want to dip your toe into the brutal extreme horror film genre, you'll definitely want to check this flick out. But don't say we didn't warn you, because it's not for the faint of heart.

'Inside' Synopsis:

Inside (À l'intérieur) is a 2007 French horror film directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, starring Alysson Paradis and Béatrice Dalle.

What Movie(s) Have You Walked Out Of?

What Movie(s) Have You Walked Out Of?
I'm fairly certain that I've only walked out of two movies in my life. The first was when my parents took me to see E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. Since I was only about six, E.T. scared the ever-living crap out of me. I started screaming, and my parents got me out of there. (Yeah, it's really, really annoying for us when kids cry at movies, but it's pretty crappy for them too!) I'm not sure if this counts, but I watched Mask in second or third grade with my eyes closed the entire time and, in fact, am still terrified of seeing Rocky's face. (Last year some friends and I did exposure therapy with pictures of him online, but I guess it didn't entirely take. I have seen The Elephant Man, though, which is a far better movie, anyway. I even had both eyes open.)

But the only movie I've ever walked out of was Outbreak,

The M/C Decade List: #50 - #41: Forgotten fantasy, fractured time, and Will Ferrell

For a full description of the purpose and the parameters of this list, read the introduction. All lists must start somewhere, and after sorting through almost 1000 titles, I ended up with 260 serious finalists.  Those finalists were weighed, considered, and finally boiled down to only 50 titles, with no ties and no cheating.  And the first title on that list is... #50 / "À l'intérieur" aka "Inside" Yep.  I'm starting the countdown with an unapologetic horror film, one of the most upsetting I've seen in my 30-or-so years as a bloodthirsty horror fan.  A pregnant woman (Alysson Paradis) and her...

Inside
Dimension Films

As is the case with certain amusement park rides, pregnant women are well advised to avoid Inside, the latest example of over-the-top French cinematic horror.

This claustrophobic shocker co-directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (both surely destined for Hollywood careers) would certainly do well here with the "Saw" crowd were it not for those pesky subtitles. Recently showcased at Lincoln Center's Film Comment Selects series, Inside is set to be released this year on DVD.

Running a compact 83 minutes, the simple story line centers on Sarah (Alysson Paradis), a pregnant young woman spending Christmas Eve alone with her cat before going to the hospital the next day for a cesarean section. Having lost her husband in a car crash several months earlier -- the film helpfully shows us repeated images of the fetus being bounced around the walls of her womb -- Sarah turns down the offers of company from her mother and solicitous boss.

That turns out to be a mistake, as her home is soon invaded by a mysterious figure (Beatrice Dalle) identified in the credits only as "the woman," who is determined to perform a premature and rather cruder version of the operation in order to get the baby for herself. A lengthy cat-and-mouse game follows, with the intruder -- armed with such weapons as a nasty pair of scissors and knitting needles -- proceeding to terrify Sarah even while dispatching several visitors, including a pair of hapless cops, who attempt to intervene.

The filmmakers pile on the gore in relentless fashion, no doubt exhausting the French supply of whatever substance passes for blood these days. It would all be laughable if it wasn't also so damn effective, with the expert photography and editing providing a nonstop barrage of visceral shocks.

Sadistically tapping into elemental female fears, Inside is strictly for those who like their horror on the extreme side.
