They're already inside
Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise. They're not alone... and a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
A 'Choose your own adventure'- sort of review. Please feel free to grab a spare pair of pants on the way in.
You're in bed, alone after a night of watching tv and liking lists on Letterboxd. It's cold and raining outside as you sleep.....
....but you wake up at 03:46am though you're not quite sure why or what interrupted your slumber. Your house is dead silent. Your bedroom stinks of farts and you remind yourself never to eat expired peanuts EVER again......
...then you hear what sounds like a children's toy, a clacker of sorts. From downstairs. From the dark. You're just imagining things. Probably. Watching too many movies can warp fragile minds. The hairs on the back of…
.....creeped me the fuck out.......French bastards.....
Often associated with the New French Extremity movement, responsible for some of the most disturbing horror flicks of 21st century cinema (Inside, Martyrs & High Tension), Them (also known as Ils) may not feature the same level of brutality that the aforementioned examples pack in but it still works as an incessantly tense, gripping & stimulating work of its genre.
Supposedly based on real events, the story of Them follows a young couple who live a peaceful life in an isolated country house but are woken by strange noises one night. What transpires next is a dreadful night of unrelenting terror as they find themselves being tormented by what appears to be a group of hooded assailants who are after their lives…
A very intense horror movie...that is based on a true story. Movie does an excellent job building suspense....all the while staying away from gore....a young John Carpenter would be proud of this movie. A couple who live in a big house in the country get attacked when it gets dark....the pretty much describes the entire movie. The first 10 minutes...which centers around a minor car accident is extremely intense....and reminded me of the scene in Halloween when Michael Meyers escaped from the hospital by jumping on a car. The first hour we do not know who is attacking the house....that makes them even scarier.....and when do figure who is attacking the house it only adds to the intensity of the movie. Movie is from France but it is worth checking out.
I was lead to believe that the film The Strangers was a remake of this film. Apparently it isn't. It's just a ripoff of this film and a poorly made one if you ask me. There's a few major differences in both films that oddly enough were minor in their execution, it's a simple matter of one director mistaking creepiness for fear.
While The Strangers seemed more concerned with making it's villains seem disturbing, directors Xavier Palud and David Moreau seem to understand that the unknown is much more terrifying or unsettling. Having your home invaded by an unknown number of assailants, not knowing who they are or if they're armed and with what, handicaps your options…
I see myself as a very rational person when it comes to fears. I'm not afraid of the dark. I can with ease walk alone through a dark forest or in (most) larger cities after midnight. I haven't locked my door since I moved out on the countryside, I let my kid climb around everywhere, snakes are free to live on my lot and even though I hate some birds (twitchy bastards) and tend to get more and more afraid of heights the older I get, you can't really say I have any phobias.
I'm not saying that I don't have fears though, on the contrary, I've lived with anxiety issues most of my life and has seen and experienced…
The French own horror!!
Genuinely freaked me out. Terrifying and great.
gostei. fiquei incomodado e isso é sempre bom.
This is the proof a good movie can run for 90 min or less.
Baixo orçamento e alta tensão!
Franceses não decepcionam quando o assunto é Thriller/Terror.
I never heard of this film but the Cinefessions podcast is covering it next so I figured I would give it a shot... man I do not understand the praise this film gets.
A couple lives out in the country and get tormented by "them".its your typical home invasion flick and it does nothing special.
With a brisk 77 minute runtime we take almost half of it to reach anything actually happening, the films opening is pointless and not needed at all.
The couple are pretty bland. We are given little to care about them. The bad guys seem to just taint them for the most part. For a couple trying to explain quiet they make a shit ton of…
MOVIE # 31; 31 DAYS OF HORROR CHALLENGE
This is a great thriller. I love that you can't see the people that are hunting you. This makes the killers look supernatural. It creates a great atmosphere.
3rd Annual 31 Days of Horror 24 of 31
Them is a French home invasion movie with a couple living in a massive house who get attacked by a group of something or somebody....but they aren't sure who or what.
This is a decent entry in the sub-genre and it does a solid job of giving viewers a likable couple and a house that makes for a great location for the film. As with many of these home invasion flicks suspension of disbelief is a must, especially when it's revealed who is causing them all this trouble. Still, this is a worthwhile entry to the sub-genre and is worth checking out.
It should be noted that the Warner Bros release…
I didn't know!
I put it on and was stressed out for the next 8 hours of my life!
I even think I liked it.
