As human beings, we are all entitled to make mistakes. They happen, and we shouldn't be shunned for them. Right?

I love, love, love French horror and for some unknown reason, I have yet to look deeper into this film until now. There's a certain way that French directors handle their films, they treat horror as a veritable art form (the way it should be treated everywhere) and it really shows. Even when they do a straight forward, if you can call it that, slasher flick everything is more stylized and much more though provoking than what you would traditionally expect. Case and point: the trailer for Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo's (Inside, Livide) latest film, Among the Living or Aux Yeux des Vivants.

In this Texas Chain Saw Massacre, IT hybrid “Youngsters, Victor, Dan and Tom skip school to wander around an abandoned movie set. They stumble upon a horrific vision : a woman in chains is dragged through the field by a man wearing a clown mask. The masked man catches a glimpse of the boys, who scramble to run away. But, before they can escape, they see something which has been hidden for years, something they were not meant to see. Terrified of having been seen by the masked man, the boys try to alert the police. Unfortunately, their past record of unruly behavior discredits them and the police do not follow up on their tipoff. That night someone breaks into their homes, seeking to eliminate them…one after another… They are going to meet Klarence…

So this one has been hotly anticipated for what appears to be months and I have been none the wiser until now. I feel stupid. Regardless, enjoy the (now old) sales art from Bloody Disgusting and please indulge in this fantastic trailer. I've already watched it a good 3 times. About to be four. And then probably five.
