Synopsis:

“The eyes below” begins as all days end. A man, Eugene, goes to bed. Everything is quiet and silent in the house. Just as he is about to fall asleep, something climbs on his legs, his stomach and then his chest. He opens his eyes in a half sleep and discovers that the night will not be as peaceful as he thought.
A film that draws as much from the gothic film as from the Kaidan-eiga, the survival or the Giallo while asserting an identity of its own and trying a new approach of the fantastic thriller.

Alexis Bruchon, a talented emerging genre auteur, is a name to definitely follow into the future.

  • „A one-man-band: writer, producer, director, editor, cinematographer, composer and sound designer. Another triumph for Alexis Bruchon. For fans of micro-budget ingenuity, it’s a true home-run, building beautifully on a confident debut, and starting to compete with chillers hundreds of times the size.“ Heyuguys.com
