Cannes 2011: Watch the First Full Length Trailer for the Haunting French Thriller ‘Behind the Walls’
Billed as the first French horror movie in 3D — Behind the Walls (Derriere les murs) now has a full length trailer. I’ve been a huge fan of the recent French wave of horror films but this one seems completely different: a period piece steeped in Gothic countryside atmosphere, and perhaps the only one centered around a Laudanum-addicted writer in the 1920s.
Here’s a synopsis:
Winter, 1922. Suzanne, a young novelist lacking inspiration decides to isolate herself in the countryside to write her new book. As Suzanne discovers a sealed-up room in the basement of her house, she starts writing oddly easily. Visions and terrifying nightmares soon strike her while the villagers grow worried as several little girls mysteriously disappear.
