Dimension Films Gets ‘Livid’

Dimension Films is announcing today that they’ve acquired French horror film Livid from directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. The pair made their feature debut with the appropriately strange film Inside, but this new project looks to be a completely different beast altogether.

According to the press release, Livid is a “horror fariytale set during Halloween night when three youths decide to burglarize an old lady’s desolate house, but what awaits them is no ordinary house…”

It’s the ellipses that frighten me the most.

Maury and Bustillo showed some genuine promise with their first film, and it even landed them a writing/directing gig for a remake of Hellraiser that never came to be. Here, they are working again with Inside star Béatrice Dalle, and the concept seems simple but effective. Hopefully the old lady has rigged paint cans on the staircase and broken Christmas tree ornaments on the living room floor.

No word yet on how long the Weinsteins will keep this on the shelf before pushing back its release date.
