Marie goes to her friend Alexia’s isolated family farmhouse for the weekend. During the night, a psychopath attacks, murdering the family and kidnapping Alexia. Marie pursues the psychopath and tries to save Alexia.
This is a brutal movie, with terrific tension and horrific gore. The twist at the end doesn’t feel earned–it was certainly never set up in a way that could have tipped off even the most astute viewer–but I’m willing to forgive it for the unrelenting violence and psychic trauma that leads up to it. It’s on par with The Strangers for home invasion horror, and Raw for blood spatter and Francophone psychosexual terror.
