French Canadian homage to early Cronenberg (amongst others)
12 October 2016 | by burthelukymanSee all my reviews

Bad reviews here just don't give this movie a chance ! It's Eric Tessier's first feature lenght film, so sure it has some beginner's mistakes (mostly continuity) but as such, it's no different and in fact VERY reminiscent of David Cronenberg's early films (SHIVERS, RABID) to which Tessier obviously pays homage and gets inspiration from (along with other horror classics already mentioned in the reviews here). So as a first effort, it's quite good and more than worth a look as an early example of Quebec's Horror renaissance of the years 2000 ( including even better titles like ST MARTYRS DES DAMNÉS/ST MARTYRS OF THE DAMNED (2005) and LES 7 JOURS DU TALION/7 DAYS (2010) which, like SUR LE SEUIL, is also inspired from a novel by Quebec's favourite horror writer Patrick Sénécal).
