Inside (À l'intérieur) Reviews
There is a brilliant depiction of evil here. Shocks abundant. It will stay with you.
With a running time of only 82 minutes, Inside unfolds at a breakneck speed, taking place over the course of one harrowing night. With one primary location and a very small group of actors, the story and plot are very simple (some would argue too simple). However, the smooth and confident direction keeps the film focused and engaging, and is definitely the film's most striking quality.
Inside is extremely well acted, shot and edited; full of unnerving visuals and captivating action sequences that truly leave you on the edge of your seat.
Rather than being gratuitous and self-indulgent, Inside's extreme violence compliments the film and brings intensity to the events, rather than being distracting and needlessly over-the-top. This ultimately works to elevate Inside above the countless entries of modern horror films grounded in hyper violent spectacle. With moments of pure tension, adrenaline, and even heartbreak, Inside is a devastatingly brutal yet unforgettable experience.
