Movie Info

This French comedy parodies horror movies and detective films. It is set at the Cannes Film Festival. There, Odile, a sincere publicist, tries to promote the horror movie "Red Is Dead." The movie tells of a killer in a welding mask who wields a hammer and sickle with deadly results. The trouble begins when a real killer with the same m.o. begins knocking off projectionists at market screenings. In true publicist form, Odile immediately brings the film's star to the festival. To protect him, Odile hires a handsome bodyguard. Odile finds herself romanced by a police commissioner. Meanwhile a stranger lurks in the distance.

Audience Reviews for La Cité de la Peur


Reminiscent in style to the Zucker brothers films "La cite de la peur" is a parody that throws so many jokes at you (sometimes at the same time) some of them have to work. Fortunately for this film and anyone lucky enough to have seen it almost all the jokes work and this is one of the funniest parodies out there. (Specially amusing is Gerard Darmon as the narcissistic police detective Bilaes).

Que dire ou souhaiter de plus? Sarah Silverman aurait pu avoir un ptit role et ça aurait été parfait
