From the directors of Inside, Livid was one of the most talked-about films at the Toronto Festival where hundreds of spectators fell under the influence of its style and feverish dreaminess. Fleeing from a conventional narrative structure, the film seems to be the transcription of a beautiful yet cruel nightmare with all the main characters trapped by their past memories and pursued by ghosts of loved ones who died but did not go far away. Livid tells how a young girl enters a house where she has to look after a worrying old lady who is supposedly in the terminal phase and whose breathing resembles Darth Vader. The old girl's home is full of ghosts, dissected animals and models that come to life when the girl (who like Bowie has eyes with different colours), her boyfriend and a friend decide, one Halloween night, to search for the treasure hidden in the mansion without realising that there are vampires and painful mirages just around the corner...
