Hearts will bleed.
Alexia travels with her friend Marie to spend a couple of days with her family in their farm in the country. They arrive late and they are welcomed by Alexia's father. Late in the night, a sadistic and sick killer breaks into the farmhouse, slaughters Alexia's family--including their dog--and kidnaps Alexia. Marie hides from the criminal and tries to help the hysterical and frightened Alexia, chase the maniac, and disclose his identity in the end.

This is a much better film than I originally, somehow thought; not that I had seen a trailer or anything, but a friend who usually loves giallo and the films of Jess Franco recommended this - and I'd just seen "City Of The Dead" which was horror of an entirely different fashion to mine - so my expectations were lukewarm. Still, this hit hard! It's a companion to "Wolf Creek" - the first one, not the miserably made sequel - where there's a nasty killer around. All in all: sweet photography and an altogether good film. High tension, indeed.

A french movie. a french horror movie. hm, is that a good basis ? The answer is: YES !

It scares the s*** out of you, because you don't know, where the killer is to search.

And the ending is just great. i don't want to spoil, so i give you just a good advise: you like horrormovies ? than you have to watch this stuff.
