Good news today, the fledgling Dimension Films has acquired the new film from Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (co-directors of the great 2007 splatter flick Inside) titled Livid. The filmmakers have been hard at work creating their new horror opus, and finally it’s done, with a US distributor.
The hold up with Inside was due to the fact that it took nearly 2 years for the film to get a proper US release, which Dimension handled under their Dimension Extreme label. Many people were disappointed that the big rental release disc was the R-rated release, as the Unrated release had a lot of extra footage and gore.
From the press release, Dimension sheds some light on the plot of Livid:
“Livid is a horror fairytale set during Halloween night when three youths decide to burglarize an old lady’s desolate house, but what awaits them is no ordinary house…”
Both sides then commented how happy they are to be working together again. Dimension may not have the same track record or brand recognition they did 10 years ago, but at the same time, anyone that is bringing quality horror overseas is a hero in my eyes. Anyone else heard of this? If you haven’t seen the duo’s previous film Inside, get on that now if you’re looking for one of the most insane slashers you’ll ever see!
