This movie scared me, shocked me, challenged me and ultimately left me sleepless for a couple of nights. Ive grown to appreciate 'good' horrors...meaning, could this really happen type of film...and thats what this is, a film not a movie. It draws you in, has you question what the hell is going on?

Its a french film starring two actors who put on performances which leave even the best of the best looking ordinary. You can expect to have seen nothing like this unless your a completely well seasoned horror fanatic (enter pyro). Dont expect gratuitous mindless senseless violence, there is a reason behind everything you see in this film from the very first scene which sees french actress Mojana Aloui running down a desolte street in the middle of an industrial site half naked. Why is she running? From who? It cuts then to yrs before and then the numbing of your mind, confusion and WTF follows. Challenge yourself to watch this and tell me what you think. Its almost a sad story ultimately but you have to wade through the looking through fingers, feeling a little ill, depressed and hopeful for the characters escape to mormality again. i dare you!!

Indeed..more people need to see this one too=)...I don't think I can really explain any better than Willy did why this movie is great. He pretty much nailed it already. But what I can do is back him up in saying this is a great horror flick that will actually hit you on an emotional level if you allow it to. All I can say is we need more scary movies like this one that can scare the bejesus out of you as well as making you wipe a teardrop from your eye.

yeah he did Helen - he had no idea wtf was going on and now hes had a few days to reflect he said he loved it and is recommending it to others now. The guy who did the special effects for the film commited suicide. Have no idea why or how though. The movie was dedicated to him.
