Storyline

Clémentine, a teacher in a French School in Bucharest, lives with her husband, Lucas, in a remote real estate in Snagow. During the night, Clémentine is woken by weird noises outside their house, and Lucas sees their car being stolen. The lights are turned off, the phones are disconnected and they see that they are no longer alone. When weird lights appear outside, they hide in the cellar and try to ask for help from what could be a dreadful night of pure terror. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

According to director David Moreau star Olivia Bonamy suffered from claustrophobia and much of her performance as she crawled through the narrow tunnels was the result of her genuine fear of the tight spaces. See more »

Boring
10 October 2006 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It seems a lot of people feel that the horror-genre has had some sort of revival in the last few years. That the genre is more alive and vibrant than in a long time. If by that you mean that many horror-movies are made, then i agree. However, if you mean that the quality is better i have to disagree completely.

Sure there are a few of the "new wave"-horror movies that have had some interesting and groundbreaking themes, like for instance SAW. But most of them are the same regurgitated crap that i seem to remember having seen since the 70's or so. This movie is no different. The fact that it's supposedly based on real events matters not, the result is still a load of crap.

This movie is 80 minutes long. That is a very short running time for a movie, i think we could all agree on that. So how do the film-makers manage to make the first 40 minutes unbearably boring? It's beyond me, but almost nothing happens. Not only is it wasted time horror-wise, it's even more wasted since there is no character-development or anything adding to some kind of story. After these 40 minutes (that feels like two hours) have passed the "horror" begins. Mostly it consists of people running around in a pitch black empty house screaming in horror at their own shadow. The pace is picked up somewhat in the end of the movie, but it still makes no sense and never becomes interesting.

The only positive thing i can really say about this mess is that at least it didn't fall into the common gore trap. Most horror movies today seem to think that horror comes from seeing lots and lots of blood. At least here they directors try (and fail) to create some sort of psychological suspense. In the end though i don't think i was scared a single one of the 80 minutes and this felt very much like a huge waste of my time.

2/10
