Maury, Bustillo on Livid, Show Concept Art


From the directors of Inside

One film horror fans are eagerly anticipating is Livid, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s latest effort after splashing audiences with blood in Inside.

Livid is making its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival and the official site for that event has run an interview with the French duo.

Here, they discuss the tonal difference between Inside and Livid: “It is true that Livid is less gory and extreme than Inside. We wanted to change registers. It reflects another aspect of genre that we also love. A more atmospheric cinema, more based on suggestion rather than demonstration. If we had to compare it, it is more old school fantastical more like HAMMER movies. But we cannot change who we are and there are still some scenes that are quite violent!”

And I’m sure their latest is quite warped, too.

Below you’ll find two pieces of concept art that were presented on the TIFF blog.

Dimension Films will be released the film here in the U.S.

At night, after crossing the heath, they break into Mrs. Jessel’s house, and enter its darkness. It won’t last long before they discover the most unexpected treasure, as well as the true identity of Mrs. Jessel, who just woke up…
