French Blood 1: Mr Pig
Rodolphe Bonnet, 2022, 83 mins
Through short stories linked together by a bloody red thread, a collective of French directors is experimenting with a new approach to the anthology of horror and fantasy. Mr. Pig is the first title in the French Blood series, combining hyper-designed aesthetics with chilling horror stories. A young geek addicted to horror films is undressed by a pervert zombie, a group of friends are stabbed with a machete by a couple of degenerates, and an old bestselling author is found dead in his mansion, while a deranged killer roams the area.
A much discussed, highly-anticipated and hyper-stylized film series, French Blood offers up a showcase of perfect French Horror – bloody, gritty, unforgiving but oh-so-stylized!
