Gratuitously violent horror film set in rural France about two friends (Cecile de France and Maiwenn Le Besco) whose idyllic weekend studying for exams at a secluded farmhouse becomes a struggle for survival when they are terrorized by a sadistic killer (Philippe Nahon). Directed by Alexandre Aja, this poorly dubbed homage to American slasher flicks is, despite moments of suspense, little more than a stylishly executed but repellent exercise in bloody excess, full of stomach-churning gore and capped by an illogical plot twist. Mostly in French with English subtitles. The film contains excessive graphic violence, including decapitations, dismemberment, a bludgeoning and an impaling, a homoerotic theme, perverse sexual situations including necrophilia, a scene of masturbation, a voyeuristic shower sequence with frontal nudity, as well as rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
