Director: Fouad Benhammou. Writers: Fouad Benhammou, Pascal Jaubert, and Lionel Olenga. Cast: Christa Theret, Bárbara Goenaga, Cyrille Thouvenin, Ornella Boulé, Axel Kiener, and Jonathan Cohen. Village of Shadows, or Le Village des Ombres for French speakers, is a moody thriller that spends much of its time in darkness. This is French director Fouad Benhammou's first film at the helm and Benhammou uses too little light in many scenes. Village of Shadows is well written, but horror and thriller fans might find the film's pacing on the slow side of the scale. This is one of only a few horror titles that has put this reviewer squarely on the fence on whether to recommend this film or not. The film begins with a scene from 1944. Two German soldiers are hidden in a barn with a force lingering outside. One man confronts a strange entity while another attempts suicide. This is no picnic. »
