A group of hooded strangers stalk a couple in this French horror film par excellance. Clementine, a French teacher living in Romania with her husband Lucas, arrives home one ordinary evening. But in the middle of the night strange things start happening, and soon the couple's being pursued and tormented by a group of hooded strangers. Will they make it out alive? And why have they been targeted? Critically acclaimed upon its release, THEM - along with films like HIGH TENSION, INSIDE, and MARTYRS - hooked the rest of the world on gruesome Gallic gore-fests. (In French with English Subtitles) Contains violence and gore.
A group of evil strangers stalk a couple in this French horror film par excellance.
Cast: Olivia Bonamy, Michael Cohen, Adriana Mocca
The sound mix was quite good. You feel the isolation for this couple. Not seeing the assailants adds to the suspense of it. The ending is shocking.
Generic home invasion fare. While I couldn't predict what would happen next, I also don't feel like I saw anything new. It looks and sounds appropriately scary, not bad to have on in the background for atmosphere.
This in no way deserves to have the title of being a French extremity alongside Martyrs and Inside. Nothing interesting happens.
Are you afraid of foreign kids? You'll somewhat enjoy this film maybe
