Pascal Laugier (French: [loʒje]; born 16 October 1971) is a French screenwriter and film director.
Laugier is a former assistant to director, Christophe Gans, having directed the "making-of" documentary about Gans' 2001 film, Brotherhood of the Wolf (Laugier also starred in the film). He has written and directed the fantasy-horror feature films Saint Ange, Martyrs, and The Tall Man.
Laugier has been associated with the New French Extremity movement.
Laugier was set to direct the remake of Hellraiser but was later taken off the project due to creative differences with the producers; Laugier wanted his film to be very serious and explore gay S&M culture, whereas the producers wanted the film to be more commercial and appeal to a teen audience.
Potential future directing projects include a supernatural thriller entitled Details.
Pascal Laugier is also the director of Mylène Farmer's music video "City of Love", the teaser of which was released online in December 2015.
