Launched in 1997 by Rodrigo Gudiño, RUE MORGUE is the world’s leading horror in culture and entertainment brand, spearheaded by its multiple award-winning periodical, Rue Morgue Magazine and Rue Morgue Digital; Rue Morgue TV specialty horror channel; the Rue Morgue Library book series; Rue Morgue Presents Frightmare In the Falls horror expo and Rue Morgue Presents CineMacabre Movie Nights film series. Rue Morgue Magazine is issued bimonthly and distributed worldwide.
Surreal, sick, demented… since its arrival 16 years ago as part of the so-called New French Extremity, Fabrice du Welz’ Calvaire carved a home in the hearts of discerning fans of foreign genre fare. Newly restored and recoloured in HD, the film is international arthouse horror of the most disturbing order, punctuated by shocking violence, shrieking livestock, a truly unsettling dance sequence, and a grimly ambiguous conclusion that pierces the psyche like nails to a cross. RUE MORGUE is proud to present a special screening of the new restoration, hosted by Executive Editor Andrea Subissati, to introduce modern horror fans to a cinematic ordeal they’re unlikely to ever forget.
A few days before Christmas, traveling entertainer Marc Stevens is stuck at nightfall in a remote wood in the swampy Hautes Fagnes region of Liège when his van breaks down. An odd chap who’s looking for a lost dog then leads Marc to a shuttered inn.
