UPDATE: I found out the English title is actually Black Heaven along with a much better synopsis and some two STUNNING stills we have after the break.

There's a large amount of films coming out with a gaming theme to them, the biggest of which is Gamer, not to mention the Russian film of the same title. I know of at least a couple more, and while clearly this theme is becoming popular (and I highly doubt any of them will be any good), the French have a tendency to make superior film so after reading this synopsis and finding the concept piece to the right, I figured this flick by Gilles Marchand might have some potential.

Gaspard and Marion are madly in love and enjoying summer in the south of France… until the two teenagers stumble upon a lost cell phone. At first they playfully decide to track down the owner...But the game takes on a much somber path when they find him dead, in a mysterious suicide ceremony. Next to him, lies a half unconscious girl, Audrey. 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.

Stills after the break.
