Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia's parents' secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls' idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror.
Alexia travels with her friend Marie to spend a couple of days with her family in their farm in the country. They arrive late and they are welcomed by Alexia's father. Late in the night, a sadistic and sick killer breaks into the farmhouse, slaughters Alexia's family--including their dog--and kidnaps Alexia. Marie hides from the criminal and tries to help the hysterical and frightened Alexia, chase the maniac, and disclose his identity in the end.Written by

When the killer is walking along opening the toilet doors in search of Marie, you can see the camera reflected in the white tiles on the walls of the restroom. See more »

Hey, Jimmy. How are you?
On your own tonight?
Yeah, weekends are slow.
So they left you to mind the store?
This the ideal place to bring girls. Don't tell me it's never happened.
If I did, my boss would fire me.
Seriously. The old ladies that drive through. Don't tell me they never asked for your services. Ain't that right, Jimmy?
Yeah, I guess.

The South Korean theatrical re-release and DVD release has cuts totaling under a minute to all the murders. Also a brief shot of a severed hand next to a phone is missing. These cuts were finally restored for the special edition DVD in 2005. See more »

Would have loved this BUT...
As many reviewers have said, this is one of the best body pile slashers films made ever, certainly in the last few years. Buckets of blood, great makeup and special effects, and some seriously genius ways of offing the good guys. But we also get one of the stupidest plot twists ever that not only ruins the vibe of the film, but makes the whole script seem completely incoherent. On multiple viewings you see the direction around this twist is actually quite well done, tons of small hints and some gross additions are noticed, but it's not worth it at all. If there was no plot twist, this would have easily gotten a 9 in my book, but it's lucky it got the 6 with that dumb idea tacked on for no reason.
