I think Inside is one of the craziest horror films around. It was one of my introductory films into French extreme cinema, and I haven’t looked back since. Now it’s getting the remake treatment.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with the film – Inside told the story of a heavily pregnant woman who just lost her husband in nasty car crash.
She is now broken woman, and a shell of the person she used to be. She spends her days alone in a large house with nothing but memories of the life that could’ve been, and the heartache of dealing with a loved one that was taken from her so unexpectedly.
A mysterious figure arrives at her front door, a tall woman, dressed completely in black that is hellbent on taking the kid from her stomach, and she doesn’t care if she is alive or dead when removing the child….the battle begins.
I know a lot of you will just hate the fact that this is getting the remake treatment, but again I can see some hope and some opportunity – not to make a better film , but to slightly improve ( I thought there was a few pointless scenes in Inside) or to elaborate on the original.
So who is behind the remake?, well this might offer you some sort of ease, as it’s not getting sent to a huge American studio and getting toned down for a western audience.
The director of the English language remake will be brought to us by Miguel Ángel Vivas, the director of Spanish home-invasion shocker, Kidnapped and more recently his English language feature, mutant zombie movie with Matthew Fox, Extinction.
Cineuropa have also reported that Jaume Balagueró, the writer of the awesome Spanish zombie movie, Rec is the man in charge of penning the script and bringing this version to life.
The original was brought to us by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. The duo are currently wrapping up their English language debut, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, Leatherface.
More to follow on both the Inside remake and Texas Chainsaw prequel.
