Ah, the French. They sure know how to make their thrillers both sexy and crazy at the same time, don't they? If you don't think so, wait till you see the crazy, sexy trailer for L'AUTRE MONDE, or BLACK HEAVEN as it translates to in English.

The film tells the story of a young couple, Gaspard and Marion, spending their summer in France. The pair soon find a lost cell phone which leads them to uncover a twisted suicide game, in which they find a beautiful young woman named Audrey who didn't quite win the game (a.k.a. she lived). It probably would have been better to just turn the cell phone into the lost and found, as the young woman turns out to not be what she seems. "With her enigmatic tattoo and her gothic looks, she soon lures Gaspard into Black Heaven, a dangerously addictive video game. Gaspard discovers an obscure universe, full of infinite possibilities. Creating an avatar who is miles away from him, he sets on a search for the beautiful but poisonous singer, Sam, who attracts victims in the virtual world and seduces them to commit suicide in real life. Could Sam's alter ego in the real world be Audrey? Could Gaspard be her next victim? He will have to creep further into Black Heaven to find out the terrible truth."

The film is set to premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival. But you can check out its very odd and very intriguing trailer after the jump!


Note: The official premise claims the game's title is "Black Heaven," which is apparently where the film's title comes from. But in the trailer, it looks as if the game is referred to as "Black Hole." Not sure if this is just a translation error or not an error at all but something from within the plot. Just thought it was something interesting to point out.
