Sarah and her husband have moved to a house in the country; their son, Loic, a college student, chaffs at the isolation and a tragedy occurs. A year later, Sarah lives alone in the house; distracted by grief, she's sent home from her hospital job at 2 AM. Police on the road warn her of burglaries in the area, then a young man, much like her son, flags her down: he surprised a burglar at his house, and he's being chased. He is Arthur. Sarah gives him a lift, and soon a car is in pursuit. A long night ensues with flashbacks to crimes and chases; can Sarah protect Arthur as she would her own son?Written by
A short and dark horror movie. The twist is something 90% of people will see coming but it hardly takes away from the overall impact of the movie. What does stand out though, is the terrifying death scenes because of how potentially real they could actually be. This is a short and sweet home invasion thriller that works pretty well at getting under your skin, even if it is predictable at times. Though this movie certainly does not hold a candle to other high profile French Horrors (Inside, Martyrs, High Tension), if you are looking for a short and sweet, fast paced thriller, this will suit you just fine!
