When Lucas Frantz invites his friends to visit his hometown Village de Ruiflec, they head in two cars to spend the weekend. The driver Hugo Kerimba, Marion Valeyre, Stan and his girlfriend Katia Brezinsky follows the car of Lucas, David Fontana, his girlfriend Lila Paredes, Marion's estranged sister Emma Valeyre and Mathias through the lonely winding road in a rainy night. Out of the blue, Hugo steps on the gas and overtakes the other car. Sooner, Lucas, David, Lila, Emma and Mathias find Hugo's car left on the road with the doors open and the passengers missing. They walk to Ruiflec to find shelter and a telephone to call the other group. But they learn that they are trapped in Ruiflec and an evil entity does not allow them to leave the village.

Very nice!
1 December 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I had the chance to discover this movie last week!

It was very well shot, very moody... I loved the camera movement... the feeling, the lightning... Creepy but not scary! It's a story full of mystery and surprises... Not a saw or Hostel movie (that i like) but it's more "classic" in the good way... Old fashioned fantastic... (like the Sixth Sense for example)

It's french but it reminds me the new wave of "Fantastic movies" from spain.

Nice story, good directing and a good casting!

It's a "you can't miss it" movie!

S.
