Sheitan (France, 06)

Vincent Cassel stars as a satanic peasant who ends up hosting a rather tense holiday evening with some 'youth looking for shelter' (the classic horror problem). This big budget black comedy/horror venture comes via Vincent Cassel and his friends from the Kourtrajme collective. Scarecrow has some Region 2 PAL DVDs from this group of visual artists available for rent. Most of it is a little more tame than the sex, baby eating and other things you'll see in Sheitan. Grin. Either way - worth checking out. Good to see Cassel pushing some friends into the EU film spotlight (especially as his mate Kassovitz left behind the art of filmmaking with Crimson Rivers). affichesheitan.jpg Check out the trailer and some stills at the official site.
