A big disappointment
15 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Impossible to understand these notes and these dythirambic comments attributed to the last film of Pascal Laugier. I missed it to Gerardmer, thinking I missed the gem. Especially after discovering that he finally won the Grand Prix. So I waited patiently for the theatrical release, encouraged by great reviews and enthusiastic spectators. The movie experience looks promising. And finally what ? A film with high graphic qualities, essentially articulated around its central twist. And then ? A french porn torture that seeks to disturb and provoke, flirting with an unhealthy atmosphere for the greatest satisfaction of the public who cries to genius. Laugier knows his classics and does not hide his sources of inspiration (Tobe Hooper, Robert Aldrich, Rob Zombie in particular). Ghostland is however much less original and radical than Martyrs. And the film recycles elementary visual artifices and unproductive jumpscares: annoying and almost insulting. Let's move on to the pitch that serves as the basis for the film, which does not bother logic or credibility. Laugier first looks to shock the viewer and, obviously, seen the comments on the web, seems to achieve it without I can't understand why. I mean, since Hostel, horror cinema has largely gone around the topic of sequestration. Also, once the rather good surprise of the middle of the film passed, Ghostland doesn't innovate really, in spite of its graphic universe too clean to be really disturbing. Another story of victims and battered executioners who deserved a less caricatural and more thorough exploitation of his "bad guys", one in particular, too much left in the shadows despite its potential. Mylène Farmer does the job, no less well, nor better than another. Not enough to trigger hysteria anyway. Except perhaps for fans without any objectivity? In short, a film with a nice coating, played and directed with conviction but which is definitely not the new milestone announced in the horror cinema. Lovecraft is a regularly quoted figure: we would have liked that Laugier goes further in the reference and has delivered a film where the horror is more insidious than here. A disappointment to me.
