Inside (2007)

Every once in a while, I decide to kick back and watch a film with subtitles. Sure, it is sometimes difficult to pay attention to, but that is OK. That is especially OK when it is a great movie, as much of the best and original horror flicks are coming from countries other than the United States. That is the case with this flick, from 2007 Inside (À l'intérieur in France). 

Plot/ Four months after the death of her husband, a woman on the brink of motherhood is tormented in her home by a strange woman who wants her unborn baby.

There are not many horror movies that make me cringe. This one did. This is still one of the most atmospheric, graphic and violent movies I have seen in some time. This is after waiting since I first saw it in 2007 to watch it again this weekend. Yes, the subtitles drive me crazy, but, that is easily overlooked between the blood, the dark overtones, the tension and the revenge aspects inside this film. What makes this one so good is the tension, as it sucks you into the violence and drags you through the gore as it is happening. This one is not for everyone (especially pregnant women) as it is extremely graphic and violent. If you are a horror fan and have not seen it, you definitely should. It is an amazing piece of cinema.
