No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA: Aux Yeux des Vivants
Directed by: Alexandre Bustillo, Julien Maury
Starring: Francis Renaud (Papa), Béatrice Dalle (Jeanne), Fabien Jegoudez (Klarence), Theo Fernandez (Viktor), Zacharie Chasseriaud (Tom), Damien Ferdel (Dan), Anne Marivin (Julia), Sidwell Weber (Louise), Nicolas Giraud (Nathan), Chloe Coulloud (Mila)
Country: France
Language: French (English Subtitles)
Runtime: 01:27:46
Genres: Gruesome, Teens, Family, Horror

Plot – Spoilers:
A soldier has been exposed to a chemical that’s messed with his genes – not a comforting thought for his wife who’s heavily pregnant.

In another track, three friends who are often in trouble at school decide to explore Blackwoods, an abandoned studio. They find a gagged woman in the boot of a car and soon run into her captor.

Among the Living isn’t among Maury & Bustillo’s best, but there’s probably enough of their style and violence to satisfy fans.

Thanks a ton admins! Always appreciated:)

I’ve been desiring to see this film for a while now bc I’m a fan of this pair of directors previous works, Inside, and Livid (Livid was actually my favorite they did, and still is honestly, bc it was laden w homages to Argento, plus I’m a sucker for gothic fairy tales), and while this wasn’t quite up to their aforementioned previous films, it was still a good film nonetheless.

Thought the violence seemed toned down a bit, till the cop got the blade to the face! Minus a point for not being taboo and not showing the kids getting killed, plus a point for being taboo and showing the antagonist was a hermaphrodite, lol.

Overall a fun watch, and somewhat suspenseful, I’ll give it a 7/10. Can’t wait for this duo’s next films, Kandisha, followed by The Deep House, to release!

Thank you EUM for this great thriller. I really enjoyed it. Great suspense and good acting throughout. Not a lot of gore but a lot of gore does not neccessarily make a great film. I rate it 8/ 10.

Pretty decent movie. Not any of this, “woke” Hollywood SJW bullshit that I’m so sick and tired of. So glad I found this website. you got some real gems on here.

A prudent film, the substantial montage of idealogues was congenial. Dalle was gratifying in this, akin and indelible to her performance in INSIDE.
Exquisitely orchestrated <3

Bit of a weaker horror movie, no? Nice boobies, nevertheless.

Any chance of getting the Director’s Cut of this?

The tension and terror of these Directors’ earlier film (‘Inside’ – on this website and a film I would recommend) is replaced in this film by jump scares, and the plot of this film is nothing unique. It has a few nice set pieces but nothing else. Hence the score: 2.5/5 fireworks
