Need a good scare?

So, I just saw a free preview of HIGH TENTION (HAUTE TENSION) today, thanks to my friends dad who gets tickets to things like this all the time. Here's my review in a nutshell. No, theres no spoilers.

Anyone remember that movie WRONG TURN? You know, the one with Eliza Dushku, and they go down the wrong road, and find savages. Well, that movie reminded me of this one. Without the disfigured people (think Rosie O'Donnell).

Anyways. The movie starts off strong. Alex & Marie venture home for summer vacation, after a year of school. All Alex wants to do is relax, take her mind off of whats suppose to be important, and enjoy the season. Little do they know, they're going to have a visitor in for the ride. On their first night home, a stranger shows up at their door, and refuses to leave.

The movie continues with Alex & Marie fending for their lives, with many chills, thrills and an amazing amount of parts that will actually make you jump (*GASP* who would have thought? An actual scary movie from this generation).

The movie ends well. It could have been better (in my opinion, then again, I'm never happy with movie endings.) but it still finishes the film in great style. WARNING: If you get sick to your stomach easily, DONT see it. It's very gory (in a very sick and twisted way). It is rated NC-17 (in most theatres).
