The Divide

de Xavier Gens



A shower of missiles sparks panic in New York City, causing the inhabitants of the Big Apple to take desperate measures in order to survive horror that appears to be the end of the world. A small group of survivors lock themselves into a bunker waiting for it all to end and for someone to come to their rescue. In these extreme conditions, the friction between them soon becomes increasingly bloodier, leading to an escalation of tension that gets even worse when the help they’ve been waiting for from the outside world becomes a threat. “Hell is other people”, Jean-Paul Sartre once said, and The Divide seems to prove him right.


Xavier Gens

Born in Dunkirk, he’s one of the renovators of French horror, with films like Frontière(s) (07), Hitman (07) and The Divide (11).
