Clémentine, a teacher in a French School in Bucharest, lives with her husband, Lucas, in a remote real estate in Snagov.

"They wouldn't play with us."
15 June 2008 | by Backlash007See all my reviews

I found Them to be kind of a "meh", take it or leave it film. It's not bad, but it's also not that great. It's much easier to review a movie that you either loved or hated. Strong feelings either way provide a wealth of comments to spout on about. That being said, I don't have a lot of things to say about this French offering. I can say that Them was a tight, tense thriller. It had a short and welcome running time that kept things moving along at a brisk pace. That's just refreshing to see in a world where the most clichéd tripe thinks it deserves 2 hours to tell a story. And this story is very simple: A couple alone in a secluded home being terrorized by "Them." I have waited a while to write this review because I wanted to see The Strangers first. They are almost the exact same movie, but I just connected more with The Strangers. The Strangers frightened me more. It may have something to do with a darkened theater versus a computer monitor though. The two films might compliment each other well in a double feature setting.
