Pascal Laugier wrote and directed almost 10 years ago one of the most intense and mindfuck movies I have ever seen, the forever beloved Martyrs (2008). His only feature film since then was the disappointing The Tall Man (2012). But now he is back with another movie that can make us horror fans be rubbing our hands in glee.
Incident in a Ghost Land (2017), which is also written by Pascal Laugier himself, is already completed and this last weekend premiered at the French Festival International du Film Fantastique de Gérardmer. And it was the most successful title of the festival for sure, achieving the awards as Best Film, Best Film for the Audience and Best Film for the Syfy Jury.
In Incident in a Ghost Land (2017), a mother of two daughters inherits a house from her aunt. Beth is the shy one, very introspective and always fantasizing about her own stories, while her sister Vera is the outgoing and self-confident one. On the first night in the new home, the family confronts with murderous intruders and the mother fights for her daughter’s lives. Sixteen years later the daughters reunite at the house. Beth is now a successful horror writer and has an idyllic life in Chicago. While on the other hand, Vera’s life has been drifting and she is in a constant estate of paranoia. The mother and the daughters get together after a long time, and that is when things get strange.
The movie is starred by Crystal Reed, Anastasia Phillips, Mylène Farmer, Taylor Hickson, Emilia Jones, Rob Archer, Suzanne Pringle, Adam Hurtig, Alicia Johnston, Ernesto Griffith, Erik Athavale, Kevin Power, Paul Titley and Terry Ray. This France and Canada production is scheduled to come out in France the 14th of March and in the USA somewhere in April. We’ll have to stay aware of other international releasing dates. In the meantime, check out the official French-subtitled trailer for Incident in a Ghost Land (2017):
