The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Would You Join Vincent Cassel's Cult?

Honey Buzz ~ Would You Join Vincent Cassel's Cult?

While it's rare, from time to time you come across actors that have the power to utterly terrify you, and yet... you crave them. For me, those actors have always been Tilda Swinton (shivermoan) and Vincent Cassel. French actor Cassel has always been a strong presence in the horror community, with roles in diverse projects such as Irreversible, Black Swan, Sheitan, and Eastern Promises. Now, Cassel is starring in Partisan, the directorial debut of Ariel Kleiman, and based on the trailer... this is going to be a "can't miss" on the Honey docket.

"Protect the ones you love..."

The story behind Partisan appears to be an original twist on an old formula: young Alexander (Jeremy Chabriel) is a happy and playful boy, growing up under the watchful eye of his father, Gregori (Cassel). Alexander is also a well-trained and deadly assassin. Having grown up in a cult-like atmosphere, Gregori's world is shaken when Alexander begins to exhibit that most dangerous of all traits: a free spirit. Surrounded by the women and children who make up Gregori's extended "family," what will happen when his own child seems destined to leave the fold?

An admitted sucker for films about cults, I'm excited to see Partisan, which won a Special Jury Award for Cinematography at Sundance this year. Check out the trailer for Partisan below!
