VINYAN is a terrifying film that takes every parent?s worst nightmare and follows it into new realms of sheer horror. After losing their only child in the devastating tsunami of Southeast Asia, Paul (Rufus Sewell, DARK CITY) and Janet Belhmer (Emmanuelle Beart, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE) barely have the strength to go on. Despite being a little disturbed by Janet?s seemingly irrational claims that she saw their son in a documentary about the orphans living in the Burmese jungle, Paul shows his support by agreeing to join her on a search for the boy. But what they encounter on their trip are horrors both earthly and ungodly: drug traffickers threaten their lives and the presence of a clan of inexplicably rabid children seem to suggest a fate that goes far beyond death. Julie Dreyfus (KILL BILL: VOL 1) co-stars in this unimaginable descent into pure madness.

If you haven't seen a little movie known as "Calvaire", then that name means nothing to you; but if you have, well then, there you go. Anyways, "Vinyan" is not so much a horror film but more-so a drama with a few disturbing, haunting, creepy, horrific moments that apparently sell it off as belonging into that genre. The marketing boys responsible …

VINYAN (apparently meaning 'drifting souls') is a film that calls for stamina and courage just to sit through it. The story is so meager, related by an ill-composed, repetitive script (Oliver Blackburn and director Fabrice Du Welz), that the only reason to not turn off the DVD after the first 10 minutes is the hope that the fine actors Emmanuelle Béart and Rufus Sewell might make something of the simplistic idea. They don't.    A couple (Béart and Sewell) lives in Thailand recovering …
