I loved Ils (Them) so much. Thought it was really creepy. Haute Tension was pretty cool too. Haven't seen the others.

Great collection. "Frontiers" was one of the best movies I saw all year.- Unk L

Hey Stacie!

Have you ever seen Calvaire?! So weird. So mean-spirited. So bizarrely homo(erotic?). So French. So much like a hundred other movies but still different. ...and then there's that fucking dance!!

I think you'd like it!

Stacie you seen MARTYRS yet, we screened it at Mayhem - it's, WRONG!

Steve K. said...

Need to see Martyrs still. Thanks for reminding me!

Favorite's on top.

Seeing as there's quite the residue of French fare - poster-wise, I figured I'd recommend one more. If you haven't (which you may have all ready) seen The Evil Inside - or Baby Blood - you may enjoy it. It's got that lovely French double threat of blood and sensuality.

Hell yeah, bring on the Gallic Grue! You even found a couple of Haute Tension and Frontiere(s) posters I'd never seen before. Can't wait to see Martyrs (I do love a good cinematic pummeling) and Vinyan, which is from Fabrice Du Welz, who did the superbly-creepy/previously-mentioned Calavaire. Have you seen Sheitan yet? I kinda loved it.

The Bar Mitzvah DJ's Secret Weapon: this catchy dance hit will get any party rockin' in no time

Throwing in my two cents to add I loved Them and Inside. I own Haute Tension, but have yet to sit down and watch it. My Netflix queue is chockful of (hopefully) good stuff.

Question: Is Switchblade Romance an alternate title for Haute Tension?

Ulrich said...

SikeChick: Yes, it is.

I have yet to see Inside cause it's not out in Denmark yet, But maybe I'll consider ordering that region 2 version with the swedish subtitles.

and Stacy, Your blog is full with goodies, Thanks.

I wake up to my High Tension poster every morning, and every morning it makes me happy.

Admittedly, I like the poster more than the movie itself, but don't let that worry you--the movie's still great. I just have an (unhealthy?) affection for girls with power tools.
