A French hottie, Marie (Cecile de France) with Jean Seberghair, joins her best friend Alex (Maiwenn) for a weekend at Alex's secludedfamily farm house. Out of nowhere, a creepy, mouth-breathing redneck (PhilippeNahon) in Michael Meyers-like overalls shows up and begins to systematicallyslaughter everyone in the house. He kidnaps Alex, but Marie manages tofollow undetected.
Most of the horror depends on the almost supernatural survivalskills of both killer and huntress, and it's hard to swallow. DirectorAlexandre Aja does manage to generate a certain amount of suspense, butalmost always fails to control or sustain it. Sadly, the twenty-somethingAja will next remake Wes Craven's "The Hills Have Eyes."
