Opening The Eyes Below

The new film from the maker of The Woman with Leopard Shoes looks to be an intense, paranoid horror thriller.

One of our favourite films of 2020 was the impressive neo-noir The Woman with Leopard Shoes, and now director Alexis Bruchon is back with the second part of the thriller trilogy.

The Eyes Below looks to be an even more intimate and intense study in paranoia if the trailer is anything to go by. With just one character on screen, one location and a production crew of just three, it has the feel of a movie that is pointing the way forward – bloated, overblown movies surely feel like an indulgent hangover of the old world, and if cinema can become more intimate, challenging and inventive rather than simply throwing empty spectacle at increasingly bored audiences, we’re all for it. The Woman with Leopard Shoes cost just €3000 to make, proving that you can do great stuff without having to piss away hundreds of millions.

The film is currently in post-production and raising funds towards completion and submission to the festival circuit. You can check out the kickstarter here, and watch the teaser trailer below.
