Harring threatens Nichols with scissors in Inside remake stills

Inside Miguel Angel Vivas Laura Harring

I am anxiously awaiting the day when we're going to hear some U.S. release date news for the remake of Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury's INSIDE. The task of remaking one of the most intense and harrowing films of the last ten years is a huge one, and I'm very curious to see how the team of director Miguel Ángel Vivas (KIDNAPPED) and  [REC] co-creator Jaume Balagueró, who wrote the remake's screenplay with his [REC] 2 and 4 co-writer Manu Diez, have pulled off their attempt at re-telling Bustillo and Maury's story.

The remake is doing the festival rounds - it made its premiere at Sitges last year and has a screening at FrightFest coming up in August - and appears to be set for release in Spain this summer (the Spanish trailer can be seen HERE), but there has been no word on a U.S. release yet. I keep hoping it will arrive before December, so I can have a holiday double feature of the remake and the Christmas-set original.

The FrightFest listing provides a synopsis for the remake: 

A recently widowed mother-to-be living in an isolated new home receives a most unwelcome visitor: a predatory woman who will stop at nothing to snatch her unborn child. Trapped and disorientated, the young mother must unleash all her reserves of strength to protect her baby and survive the night. With subtle tweaks and added shocks to the original story, expect a totally unexpected seat-edged nerve-jangler.

FrightFest also lists a running time of 100 minutes for the film, which would make it 18 minutes longer than the original.

Rachel Nichols plays the beleaguered pregnant woman, with Laura Harring as the predatory woman who wants to steal the child. Images below feature Harring's character preparing to rip the baby from Nichols' womb with a very large pair of scissors.

Nichols and Harring are joined in the cast by Stany Coppet, Ben Temple, and Andrea Tivadar.
