Wow!! This is not only a great movie but a great experience, that will stay with me for life. Literally had me at the edge of my seat the entire time waiting to see what would happen next. Only downfall was that my coffee got cold. LOL Heard there is an American re-make. Don't bother, an original like this can never be truly duplicated.It is in a word, PERFECTION. Horror at it's best.
great movie, always wondered what she told her!
One of the best & most disturbing horror films of all time
One of the best in the french extremity genre out there.
Just finally got around to watching this. One of those "there's nothing left to watch" moments. It was okay.
