I caught this little ditty on Netflix. Ever since Cache, amongst others, I’ve been a bit hesitant to dive right into a French flick. (Sorry, but I did not find anything mysterious and deep about an hour’s worth of cars driving by and a man getting a stick figure drawing. Ooooooh.)
Anyway, I decided ‘why the hell not’ and was pleasantly surprised how creeped the hell I out I got. The story is simple- a couple is in their remote house one night with a group of people start fucking with them. I think it’s the simplicity that keeps it creepy. From the first scene, you have no idea who the antagonists are or what their motives are. It’s just all kinds of freaky. It’s a very straightforward flick with not a lot of time spent on character development or any other extra devices. It just takes the story and runs with it. Definitely worth a watch.
