There are striking echoes of Guillermo Del Toro and Dario Argento in Livid, the latest twisted, blood-drenched gothic nightmare from the Inside (2007) team of Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury. Set in a chilly backwater of Brittany, it stars Chloé Coulloud as Lucie, a young nurse hired to care for the wealthy Madame Jessel, a former ballet mistress who lies in a coma in an old dark house filled with stuffed animals. The house is also rumoured to contain a stash of hidden treasure. You know that Lucie and her boyfriend will be unable to resist returning one inky black night to plunder the house. You may not guess the welcome party waiting to greet them and punish them for their greed. Atmospheric, superbly crafted fairy- tale horror taken to nerve-shredding extremes. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: FrightFest Extra.
