A new clip (NSFW) is circulating from Xavier Gens new post-apocalyptic film, The Divide. Gens previously directed the French horror Frontier(s). This new thriller stars Michael Biehn, Lauren German and Rosanna Arquette and looks pretty intense.
The story consists of nine strangers—all tenants of a New York high rise apartment—escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
I've been in need of a good apocalypse flick, and so far, this one is looking pretty solid. The Divide opens on January 13th.
