Inside (A L'interieur)
Plotline: A pregnant woman is involved in a car crash that kills her husband. She is spending her Christmas Eve alone with plans to for a medically-induced birth the next day when a crazy woman breaks into her house with plans to steal her baby by any means necessary.
Scariness factor: Damn. This movie is all sorts of claustrophobic and freaky. I noticed my body all tensed up several times throughout the movie and with clenched knuckles etc.
Gross-Out Factor: This was one of the goriest movies I've ever seen. I normally wouldn't sit through something so gory, but it was filmed so well and it was so fricking scary that I toughed it out. But jesus: definitely not for the faint of heart. The faint of heart shouldn't even be IN THE SAME HOUSE as this movie.
Complaints: The gore. While it was almost magnificent in how over the top it was, I'm still not quite sure it was necessary. I'll give them the final shot, because that one was FANTASTIC and horrible. But much of it seemed over-the-top. And the shots of the baby in utero were a bit cheese-tastic
High Points: This movie just had a lot of style to it. It was gruesome but oftentimes beautifully shot in its gruesomeness. And it seriously was scary as fuck. You know those movies where you find yourself leaning forward in your seat, muttering under your breath to the characters, willing with your body for the main character to make it out safely? This is DEFINITELY one of those gems.
Overall: The more and more I think about this movie, the more and more I liked it, despite the intense gore. It really was spooky as fuck. So if you can HANDLE the gore, I definitely recommend.
(Thanks, Kimberly, for the recommendation!)
