Yellow Veil Pictures has unveiled a new trailer for the new HD remaster of Fabrice du Welz’s CALVAIRE ahead of re-release next month. The 2004 New French Extremity classic will open in theaters beginning February 24th followed by arriving on Digital Platforms on March 3, 2023. Yellow Veil Pictures will also release CALVAIRE on a collector’s edition BluRay available soon.
Released at the height of the New French Extremity movement, CALVAIRE follows a traveling entertainer who falls victim to a dangerously unhinged innkeeper determined to keep him captive. The U.S. premiere of the remaster took place as part of the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival this past October.
As du Welz’s first feature, CALVAIRE would go on to become the first part of his thematic Ardennes Trilogy (alongside 2014’s Alleluia and 2019’s Adoration) and immediately define the young director as a voice to watch in Belgium. CALVAIRE takes its cues not only from the contemporary extreme cinema of France and Belgium, but also from iconic works like Texas Chainsaw Massacre to create a poetically brutal study of human nature.
The film stars Laurent Lucas, Jackie Berroyer, Philippe Nahon, and Brigitte Lahaie, and is produced by Vincent Tavier, Eddy Géradon-Luyckx, and Michael Gentile.
