High Tension 7/10

Everything goes just perfectly in this film until the end portion. I would like to ask the director why he made the choices he did. But, then again, he is a director and they get to make those decisions. I’ve added this film to my excellent slashers list, it truly kicks as despite the ending.

High Tension (2003) Haute tension (original title) R | 1h 31min | Horror | 10 June 2005 (USA) High Tension Poster Trailer 1:45 | Trailer3 VIDEOS | 62 IMAGES Watch Now From $2.99 (SD) on Prime Video ON DISC Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia’s parents’ secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls’ idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror. Director: Alexandre Aja Writers: Alexandre Aja, Grégory Levasseur Stars: Cécile de France, Maïwenn, Philippe Nahon

Home invasions are torture. That’s why I love them. We have this here alongside a sweet little story of two girlfriends. Rather, it’s about two GIRLS who are friends right? The killings are among the most brutal I’ve seen. The film builds suspense well, introduces the killer, and goes berserk up to about halfway through. When the girls are ushered to a gas station, the film becomes something else, and I mean that literally! I had fun watching the film despite the twist ending that probably wasn’t even needed. In fact it doesn’t even have anything to do with the title. If you don’t know the film and you like slashers, see it!
