High Tension ★★★★

It's ironic to me that we're now nostalgic for the horror films of the early aughts in the same way we once were for Eighties horror. I wouldn't blame anyone who writes off "High Tension" for its baffling twist ending, but everything leading up to that moment is one efficiently orchestrated setpiece after the other. A New French Extremity slasher executed with a visual slickness befitting a EuropaCorp production.
