Default The Divide (2011)

“A LEAN, MEAN AND NASTY LITTLE MASTERPIECE.”

ARROW IN THE HEAD.






VISIT THE OFFICIAL FAN HUB NOW!


Strongly tipped as a filmmaker to watch on the strength of his astonishing debut feature “Frontier(s)” and hard-hitting follow up “Hitman”, director Xavier Gens fulfils all expectations with his latest offering, The Divide, an intense, post-apocalyptic shocker hailed as “a must-see” by Aint It Cool News and described by Screenjabber.com as “a film of extreme visual flair… thrilling… thought provoking, exciting highly recommended.”

Adding further pedigree to the film’s impressive credentials is a stellar cast of familiar horror, sci-fi and cult genre movie stars that includes Michael Biehn (The Abyss; Aliens; The Terminator), Lauren German (Hawaii Five-O; Hostel: Part II), Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction), Milo Ventimiglia (Wolverine; Heroes), Courtney B. Vance (Final Destination 5; FlashForward) and Ashton Holmes (Nikita; The Pacific).

As an onslaught of nuclear missiles from an unknown assailant falls on New York City, a small group of tenants and the caretaker of an apartment building manage to find refuge in the building’s bunker-like basement. But as the days and nights slowly tick by, their sanctuary starts to resemble something more akin to a living hell. Adding further terror to the situation, the shelter is unexpectedly attacked by mysterious armed assailants wearing hazmat suits, their motives unknown but their merciless method of assault all too clear. This new threat forces the trapped victims to unite against a common enemy but it is a unity that proves to be short-lived.

With little chance of rescue and only unspeakable horrors and almost certain death awaiting them on the outside, the survivors slowly begin to descend into madness as food and water supplies dwindle, tensions flare and self-preservation becomes the only option. The ensuing power struggle leads to physical, psychological and sexual torment among the group as each member loses touch with his and her humanity. Despite this, one individual holds on to the hope of some form of salvation beyond the thick concrete walls of what may soon become nothing more than a tomb.

From its terrifying opening sequence to its breathtaking and totally unexpected finale, The Divide grips like a vice throughout and sees the ever-excellent Michael Biehn delivering one of the most riveting performances of his career.

The Divide (cert. 18) is released by Momentum Pictures and will open at selected UK cinemas on 20th April 2012. It will be available on Video On Demand from 30th April 2012 and available to Download and on DVD (£12.99) from 14th May 2012.

Meh. Saw it at Fright Fest. Found it a pretty routine survival thriller, struggling to remember much of it - folk shouting at each other in a basement for two hours . . .
