Livid (Béatrice Dalle) - DVD Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
FOLLOWING their acclaimed debut, Inside, a fresh, exciting spin on the home invasion genre, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo return with Livid, an inventive, smart and truly terrifying take on the ‘haunted house’.
The film is released on DVD, Blu-ray and EST on August 13, 2012.
Lucie (Chloé Coullaud) is on her first day as an in-home caregiver in a gloomy seaside town in Brittany, assigned to the estate of a Mrs Jessel.
Mrs. Jessel lies in a cerebral coma, by herself, in her large desolate house. Lucie learns from her trainer that Mrs. Jessel, once a dance instructor who lost her only daughter years, has hidden a treasure in her home that she’s holding onto as part of her final will.
Upon retelling this story to her boyfriend, William (Félix Moati), the two along with William’s brother, Ben (Jérémy Kapone), decide to go to the woman’s home late on Halloween night and find the treasure for themselves.
As the house reveals itself to be increasingly peculiar, their hunt for the Jessel treasure leads them into a horrifying supernatural series of events that will change Lucie’s life forever.
Livid is a dark, hauntingly beautiful fairy tale, reuniting the directors with Béatrice Dalle, the star of their award-winning debut.
Extras include the trailer, a making of featurette and interviews with Julien Maury & Alexandre, Marie-Claude Pietragalia, Catherine Jacob, Félix Moati & Jérémy Kapone.
