Day 16: "You drive a woman crazy. You little slut."

Day 16 of the 31 Days of Halloween countdown

Haute Tension (High Tension) (2003):
(French, English dubbed/subtitled)

High Tension is a French flick and I will say this about the French...they are some sick bastards!

The story revolves around 2 college girls on vacation at one of the girl's parent's house in the country.

I was going to say that, in the beginning, everything seems happy and nice, but that would be a lie. From the beginning you can feel the angry mood of this film, you can tell that there is going to be a lot of violence...and you get a glimpse of a guy, how should I put this..., giving himself head with the head of a young girl who is now headless, before he heads out to kill more young girls.

Its an atmospheric and SUPER dark movie full of seemingly random murders perpetrated by a disgusting old , fat Frenchman who just likes the feel of a good jumpsuit...covered in blood and guts.

And, essentially, that is what this movie is...or is it? Mindless?- NO! Random?-Not so much...

BUT it is plenty violent and well thought out. get ready to be disgusted, scared, disturbed, and pleasantly surprised.

High Tension is by far and away the best French horror film I've seen.
