English Language Remake

From Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the directors of the brilliant movie Inside, Livid was an unfortunately scattered follow-up that could have used some serious reigning in. Rob was right to call it a “visually appealing mess of a movie.” Still, the potential is undeniably there.
