There’s just nothing we can say about the upcoming flick from Horsehead Pictures and Starfix Productions entitled Horsehead (a.k.a. Fievre) that can make it any more or any less intriguing. The truth is it’s just plain weird. Check out this latest clip.
Fievre (or Fever in English) is an English-speaking French horror film, and it’s Romain Basset’s feature film directorial debut. The film is being brought to us by Horsehead Pictures. It was co-written by Basset and Karim Chériguène and stars legendary Catriona MacColl (Lucio Fulci’s muse), Franco-Australian revelation Lilly-Fleur Pointeaux, famous English singer and actor Murray Head (Say It Ain’t So, One Night in Bangkok), French model and actor Fu’ad Aït Aattou (The Last Mistress), and French horror icon Philippe Nahon (I Stand Alone, High Tension).
Jessica has never dreamed in her life but has had regular nightmares, the meanings of which have escaped her. This peculiarity has led her to conduct studies specializing in the psychophysiology of dreams and to follow a therapy with Sean, her mentor and boyfriend, to try to understand the origins of her nightmares.
Following the death of her maternal grandmother, whom she scarcely knew, Jessica must return reluctantly to the family home. Upon her arrival, she discovers that her late grandmother is resting in the adjoining room to her own during the wake. After a rough first night made restless by a strange nightmare in which she meets her dead grandmother, Jessica suddenly becomes ill. Stuck in her bed with a high fever, the young woman decides to use her lethargic state to experience lucid dreams and thus try to take control of her nightmares. Henceforth, on the advice of Sean, Jessica needs to breathe a little bit of ether when a crisis arises to sink deeper into the other world.
