French splatter exploitation film finds college friends Marie (De France) and Alex (Maiwenn) spending the weekend at the isolated farmhouse of Alex's parents. Your standard gross killer (Nahon), who enjoys decapitation, kills Alex's family and kidnaps Alex so he can torture her at his leisure. Marie sets out to rescue her. There's a lot more gore and even more bad dubbing. Americans do these things much better.

And not in a good, scary way, but more in the 'I can't believe they actually made me waste nearly two hours of my life watching this.' Starts out as a chilling psychological thriller, with some genuine scares, a good premise and nice photography. Ends up as an insulting 'twist' ending that makes M. Night Shyamalan's worst look like Citizen Kane. The potential for this movie was so wasted at the end, how they could ever get away with it is a mystery in itself!
