Nicely done French-made slasher is much better than some critics would have you think.
A band of young actors go off to an isolated mansion to perform a play. But once there a series of strange things leads the youths to believe that all is not right.
Overall a terrific foreign horror film. Director Lionel Delplanque gives a stunning visual sense to this film, whose story is a bit on the dark and bizarre side. The stalking/attack sequences are eerie and effective. The cast does well in their roles, Lecoeur, Sibony, and Courau being the best of the young stars. Berleand also does a good job with his especially weird character.
While some give this film the shaft as a direct-to-video flop, it's really much better than that. Give it a turn genre fans.
*** out of ****
