Are you familiar with Creepshow, The ABCs of death or V/H/S? The three of them are famous anthology horror films. Anthology movies are a subgenre of features consisting of several different short films all tied together around a single plot.
FRENCH BLOOD is the first anthology horror films franchise produced in France. It will be presented in ten chapters, ten 80 minute-long films. As of today, CONTREPOINT PRODUCTION has already produced the first three chapters.
FRENCH BLOOD tells the story of a woman who was raped and left for dead by a gang of five men hiding behind masks: Mr. Pig, Mr. Rabbit, Mr. Frog, Mr. Sheep and Mr. Wolf. It’s now up to her to take up the mask and her revenge…
This is the thread that leads from one movie to the other: HER revenge. In the first five chapters, she finds each one of her five abusers, and so wearing her mask she lets her anger and hurt loose.
Every chapter of FRENCH BLOOD includes three to four short films, all of them dealing with the single storyline of the main character. It is neither necessary to watch the films in any specific order, nor to watch them all to understand what’s going on. For those who want to take the long ride, each feature film has to be considered as one piece in the puzzle.
FRENCH BLOOD, that’s ten anthology feature films involving thirty French directors who all share the same boundless love for a no-holds-barred and transgressive cinema.
