Ils Is Coming

The UK release for Ils has been set for January 26th, so the trailer has recently washed up on these shores and Horror Movies have rooted it out. A rather derivative horror film in many respects, it has nonetheless set directors Palud and Moreau on a shooting-star ascendency, with a remake of The Eye and Saw IV reportedly being the next two projects on their slate.

Ils has worked because it passes off a scenario that is almost real as entirely real - for less cynical viewers at least. In a slightly more innocent age, The Daily Mail might have been incensed by this film, these days, however, I dare they'll even give it a mention.
