I really didn't know what to expect from this movie since I liked Inside from the same directors but I've always expressed it's not a movie for everyone even though it's filled with deep substance , and the low IMDb rating 5,7 up to March 6th 2016 . I was surely expecting the beautiful scenery and photography due the artistic background of both directors, but what really amazed me was the dark Gothic turn the film transformed into.Even tough I've always loved Dark Gothic Horror, I've been only able to enjoy it on music videos Marilyn Manson's, Nine Inch <more>
Nails',... and some video games Silent Hill, Quake,... . IMHO Coppola's Dracula didn't deliver as a Scary Movie, Horror or Gothic Tale. This is the first time in my lifetime I've been able to witness such a deep, artistic, scary, immersive, creepy Dark Gothic Horror movie.Highly recommended to any kind of Horror Movie fans which include Slasher, Monster, Shocking, Scary, Disturbing, Horror Tale, Found Footage, Privacy Invasion, Mystery, Beast and Crisis movie fans
In Livid, Lucie who has heterochromia is on her first day as a practicing care giver and goes on rotation with a more experienced care giver named Catherine. They take care of older patients. Lucie isn't invited to see the last patient of the day, but she decides to go anyway.The patient is a creepy old woman in a coma who lives in a large house in the country. Catherine tells Lucie that the old woman used to be a famous ballet instructor and that it's rumored that she has a treasure hidden in the house and that she had a daughter Anna who died. Incidentally, Lucie's mom also died <more>
recently. The old woman also has a key around her neck that Catherine has tried on every door. Catherine also tells Lucie to pick one of the many books in the room. Lucie opens one and a moth flies out.Later Lucie tells her boyfriend about the treasure. He's poor and works for his dad on his fishing boat. He now dreams of a bright future and together with a friend/relative they decide to break into the house at night.So far everything is straightforward. The kids break into the house, grab the key from the woman and explore the rooms. They find a room with automaton figures at a dining table. Each figure has the stuffed head of a different animal. They also find what could be the woman's treasure- Anna's corpse mummified/petrified in a ballet position on top of a large music box. Suddenly the music box starts turning. As the kids separate, Lucie starts having visions of the woman and Anna's past. The woman also apparently wakes up from the coma to get her key back. One of the guys disappears into a mirror only to be killed by ballet girls. When he comes back out of the mirror he attacks Lucie's boyfriend. And now things get bloodier and murkier.Usually I don't appreciate movies that don't bother to explain themselves. But that is because usually obscure movies don't have anything to explain, they just have lazy writers. Livid doesn't suffer from that. On the contrary, it gives you plenty to think about, but doesn't provide answers, which is fine because the plot is more poetic, fantastic, and imaginative.The movie is so well-directed that even the first hour, which is relatively slow, is still engaging. In the last half an hour things get really wild and the horror aspect finally comes out. Livid is so different and unique, even though it borrows from old horror movies, it's quite endearing and you can forgive the slow start and the absence of clarifications. There are so many different elements here that allow for interpretation- the heterochromia, moths and larvae, automatons and human automaton hybrids, vampirism, a lot goes on and everything matters in the end.This movie succeeds because the writers/directors know how to write a story and direct a movie. But the problem is that they are the same who gave us the outstanding Inside. As such, this movie is a bit of a letdown and should really have been a movie that came prior to Inside. After having watched Inside, you do expect more from this team.
persuades her and his brother Ben to accompany him to the house that night with the aim of finding the treasure.Livid is both haunting and horrific in equal measure. Scenes are dimly lit, taking place almost exclusively at night and where the only source of light is a torch or flickering bulb. The Gothic mansion is a perfect set piece for the unfolding treasure hunt and much of the imagery presented within the peeling facade of its ancient walls will linger in your memory long after the film is finished. The photogenic Coulloud is perfect as the dazed female protagonist, her sultry eyes, permanent pout and expressive yet somehow dormant features will have your attention in every one of her scenes.The first 80% of the movie is a wonderful addition to the haunted house genre, featuring some of the creepiest moments I've seen in a film of this type in a long time. Unfortunately, the story loses its way toward the end, uncertain how and where to finish, and wraps up with a series of ambiguous metaphors before spiralling out of control into full fairytale mode and throwing all previous suspension of disbelief down the can.Despite this disappointment, the majority is well worth a watch, guaranteed to give you chills and have you on the edge of your seat. It's hard to inject this kind of blanket horror into a film and for the effort and achievement Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury deserve full credit. More, however, should definitely have been invested in a conclusion more befitting the rest of the film.
This dark fantasy horror movie is a welcome breath of fresh air. (by Daverat)
Any movie that blatantly refers to the excellent classic HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH gets my respect, but when I realized that they were channeling the often misunderstood and under appreciated Jean Rollin, I knew they were after my own heart. LIVIDE may not be as cringeworthy as their previous effort Ã€ l'INTERIEUR a.k.a. INSIDE 2007 but then what can possibly more so than putting an 8 month pregnant woman in constant peril for 70 minutes as they did with INSIDE? which I always felt was a bit of a cheap shot as effective as it may be With LIVIDE directors Alexandre Bustillo <more>
and Julien Maury go supernatural and give the entire movie a phantasmagoric look and feeling that certainly gives many nods to great movies and directors of the past but at the same time they root the film in today's world and don't resort to any cheap tricks which makes this dark fantasy horror movie a very welcome breath of fresh air compared to the tiresome found footage movies and asinine remakes that seem to dominate today's horror movies as well as the repeatedly FAILED attempts to make an '80s throwback.
the supporting actors, not the three main characters that stole the show , she's one of the most naturally beautiful women I've seen in years. You'll notice it.This is just as much horror as it is some crazy fantasy. It often feels surreal, and there's even quite a lot of gore. I was fascinated with the main mystery as well. Funny, because I watched "Cassadaga" before this, and it had the same three elements as "Livide": Supernatural, gore and mystery. While I wasn't impressed with Cassadaga, I loved this one. Cinematography is often beautiful and creepy, as should be when there's an old mysterious house as the main location. I loved the creepy stuff, the whole artistic design and interior of the house. Stuffed animals, dolls, paintings, statues, colors, lights, the works. And no, they're not there just for cheap jump-scares. While watching this, I really felt I was traveling in that same surreal house with the main cast, room by room. There's lots of imaginative, fairy-tale like material, and while I wouldn't necessarily throw Guillermo Del Toro - comparisons around, I can understand why many people do.That's it. I'm not a fan of french films, but this one won me over. It goes a little nuts at the end, doesn't answer all main questions and that may frustrate some people - me too, not going to lie - but this was still a very welcome trip. Not once was I bored nor checked my watch. This movie captivated me and my imagination to the very end. A little frustrating movie, but so very well done. I can't really pinpoint the main element that made me like this so much. Perhaps the overall quality and that certain "magic" that some movies just have.
