Gory European gothic horror doesn’t come any grittier and weirder than it does when a couple of would-be lesbian college girlfriends retreat to a weekend at the secluded farmhouse of one of their parents, to study for their final exams.
A local deranged psycho-killer pays a nocturnal visit to the house and imposes a bloody terror spree that has Marie (Cecile De France) chasing the madman to rescue her friend Alex (Maiwenn), who sits as his shackled hostage in the back of his van.
A mix of English-language dubbing and French subtitles adds to the charm of director Alexandre Aja’s homage to slasher films of the ‘70s, namely “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” Get out the popcorn, and get ready to squirm in your seat.
Rated R. 85 mins.
