This dark fantasy horror movie is a welcome breath of fresh air.
12 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

Any movie that blatantly refers to the excellent classic HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH gets my respect, but when I realized that they were channeling the often misunderstood and under appreciated Jean Rollin, I knew they were after my own heart. LIVIDE may not be as cringeworthy as their previous effort À l'INTERIEUR a.k.a. INSIDE (2007) but then what can possibly more so than putting an 8 month pregnant woman in constant peril for 70 minutes as they did with INSIDE? (which I always felt was a bit of a cheap shot as effective as it may be) With LIVIDE directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury go supernatural and give the entire movie a phantasmagoric look and feeling that certainly gives many nods to great movies and directors of the past but at the same time they root the film in today's world and don't resort to any cheap tricks which makes this dark fantasy horror movie a very welcome breath of fresh air compared to the tiresome found footage movies and asinine remakes that seem to dominate today's horror movies as well as the repeatedly FAILED attempts to make an '80s throwback.
