Haute Tension

It’s a killer thriller.

A haunting mystery, carefully hidden inside a gore-riffic slash-fest, it hits like a concrete saw to the guts, and is unapologetic about hurting your feelings.

Director Alexandre Aja tracks a pair of young women as they try and stay one step ahead of a nasty serial killer who’s painting the countryside red.

A key part of the “New French Extremity,” — a wave of Gallic barf-fest films which splattered across screens in the early 2000’s — Haute Tension is not for the easily queasy.

Love it or hate it, though, you have to admit it packs a wallop.
