Director: Fabrice Du Welz
Starring: Laurent Lucas, Jackie Berroyer, Philippe Nahon
A few days before Christmas, a traveling entertainer is stuck at nightfall in a remote forest village after his van breaks down. He finds an inn and gets a room for the night. The next day, he finds himself in a nightmare that may not end.
Belgian filmmaker Fabrice Du Welz's horrifying first film Calvaire is a dark and depraved psychological horror. With its stunning cinematography, surreal atmosphere, and disturbingly sickening gore, Calvaire stands as a highlight of the New French Extremity.
