A fun, creepy tale that echoes Argento's Suspiria.

Horror can be very effective when it makes the unlikely horrific, and that's often one of Livid's best features.

Livid is almost all allegory, mood, style, flourish, freak-out and suspense.

No one faults a spook house for lacking a strong narrative -- we want chills and thrills and an excess of horror imagery that borders on gaudy. In that way, Livid completely delivers.

combines a unique spin on the vampire myth with the fairytale surrealism of Lewis Carroll (via Svankmajer's Alice), the danse macabre of Copplia (via Argento's Suspiria) and the imagistic poetry of Franju's Eyes Without a Face.

The directors of 'Inside' go in a completely different direction, and the result is (again) a damn good horror film.

...it's ultimately impossible to walk away from the proceedings without feeling a slight sense of disappointment.

Its internal logic eluded me on first viewing, but Maury and Bustillo compensate with the go-for-broke savagery and viscera that's come to define new French horror.

'Livid's true gift is its creative madness, a film that's drenched in imagery that will resonate with viewers for decades.
