Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #73. Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury’s Among the Living

Among the Living (Aux yeux des vivants)

Director:Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury
Writer(s): Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury
Producer(s): Fabrice Lambot, Caroline Piras, Jean-Pierre Putters
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Anne Marivin, Béatrice Dalle, Francis Renaud, Fabien Jegoudez, Nicolas Giraud

Many consider this duo’s 2007 debut, Inside, to be one of the most frightening films ever made, and it gave Beatrice Dalle one of her greatest roles in years, leading Dalle to vow to be in every feature Maury & Bustillo make. Her role was cut down considerably in their 2011, follow-up, Livid, which didn’t make the same aggressive mark (though both films have been tipped to be remade in English). Now, we’re excited to see their third union, and scant plot details have us excited. We’re hoping Ms. Dalle is back, front and center.

Gist: Three kids who decide to skip school in order to explore an abandoned amusement park catch site of a woman being dragged through a field by a masked man.

Release Date: SXSW managed to grab the world premiere showing and this should be high up a depth chart for whichever distributor ends up grabbing it.
