A L'Interieur

À l'intérieur by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo is screening Saturday, Sept. 15 as part of the Midnight Madness program.

C. Geddes describes the film as "Four months after the tragic car accident that claimed the life of her husband, the very pregnant Sarah (Alysson Paradis, sister of French pop idol Vanessa Paradis) is relaxing alone in her suburban house on Christmas Eve, waiting for her mother to take her to the hospital where her doctor will induce labour. The silent night is broken by a knock on the door as a woman (Betty Blue’s Beatrice Dalle) calmly asks to use the phone. Immediately suspicious, Sarah refuses to let the stranger in and calls the police, who find no trace of the woman when they arrive. When they depart, Sarah locks the door, unwittingly trapping herself in a jealous maternal struggle for the survival of the new life within her belly. Sarah must fight back against a scissor-wielding madwoman hell-bent on taking one thing away from her…

A nice calm bloody terror to end the festival with. says it's "for those who like their blood by the barrelful". Perfect.
