Hmmm. I don't know what to say about └ l'intÚrieur, apart from that it didn't really succeed for me as a horror film. Though there are two very committed and really quite brilliant performances, the story is practically non-existent. The gore/SFX probably does set at a new benchmark in terms of gruesomeness. Realistic? Not so sure about that. The structure of this film quickly wore me out too: caller comes to check on pregnant protagonist, is promptly slaughtered by the psychotic woman who is terrorizing her. This happens over and over to less effect each time. The only two characters we get to 'know' in any way are the two leads, so anyone else's fate never matters. The fact that there is so much striking imagery, some excellent cinematography (love the grainy, dingy look), a fantastic music score and an actually pretty decent twist only makes the film more disappointing. This may have worked better as a short or one of those 45 minute horror anthology episodes, instead, despite a relatively short running time, it feels padded out, even if the tension stops things from ever really dragging. More focus on the script and structure - and perhaps some sort of social/moral commentary - would have made this a better film in my eyes.
