Among The Living new pictures from Inside directors

Bustillo and Maury’s new horror film shows Stephen King inspiration

Three new pictures from Inside and Livide directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s new horror film Among The Living have appeared.

Their new crowd-funded film is inspired by Stephen King’s It and Stand By Me, and tells the story of what happens when “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…”

Twitch reported the director’s official statement: “Among The Living, while being in line with our previous movies themes, is a new way for us to look at fantasy films. We focused on the transition from childhood to adulthood. What happens if, instead of getting rid of their fears and growing up, Tom, Dan and Victor would actually meet their fears. In the form of Klarence. Our vision on this movie is a mix of the melancholy of Stand By Me, the intensity and visual choc of The Hills Have Eyes and the creepy atmosphere of Insidious! The abandoned movie set is the ideal location. It carries tremendous collective memories while providing various places for our fear to hide and grow. It was the perfect place for Klarence’s nest…”
