You gotta hand it to the French: they know their horror! And judging from the first trailer and handful of images from Romain Basset's FEVER (FIEVRE) we're in for a delightfully creepy good time with this tale of nightmares becoming reality.
On tap for ya this morning we have a look at Basset's FEVER which is on its way to Cannes. The film stars Lilly-Fleur Pointeaux, Catriona MacColl, Emmanuel Bonami, Shane Woodward, Gala Besson, Fu’ad Ait Aattou, Vernon Dobtcheff, Joe Sheridan, Philippe Nahon and musician-turned-actor Murray Head. This ain't no "One Night in Bangkok", through...FEVER looks like a nightmare from hell, filled with shocking imagery and wicked atmosphere. I'm ready to catch this FEVER!
“Since her youth Jessica has nightmares. This leads her to study psychophysiology of dreams. When her grandmother dies, Jessica must return to the family house. Upon her arrival, she discovers that the body of grandmother will be placed in the adjoining room during the wake. Stuck in bed with a high fever and nightmares, Jessica decides to use her lethargic state to experience lucid dreams and thus try to take control of those nightmares. She will begin to evolve in a nightmarish and dreamish world in order to investigate and to discover the evil that haunts her and the family house.”
Check out the trailer and nightmare inducing imagery below. Hopefully we'll hear some word on when we'll finally get to check this one out soon.
