yeah im not sure if French New Wave films are really my thing...
home invasion/torture movies will forever be the scariest ones to me. a crazy sociopath with control over you is far more scarier than any monster or ghost. this gave me so much anxiety and i LOVED IT!
also i was not ready for the breaking of the fourth wall and all of the crazy “self-awareness” shit that goes on throughout the film. honestly my favorite thing about the whole film. you can tell Hanake’s main goal was to take the audience’s expectations and COMPLETELY DESTROY THEM.
also im really interested in watching the remake since its an shot-by-shot remake
