Haute tension

Alexandre Aja France, 2003

Palmat's rating of the film High Tension

A great slasher-gem with both balls, gore and tension to spare. Cecile DeFrance, who plays the protagonist, goes beyond the call of duty for this type of movie and gives a riveting performance. I just wished people would stop complaining about the ending. I´d rather have this ending, which is implausible but works in favour of the movie keeping the tension, than a boring and predictable one. Recommended!
