ils (2006) aka. Them

Plot: Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise... they're not alone...
Before i start to review this movie in a few words (i will never ever give away any spoilers!) i have to tell you that i am a huge horror fan, and i have seen hundreds of horror movies, so i have high expectations when it comes to horror movies.
If you look at the plot, you will think "aw shit, another boring horror movie with a shitty plot", but i can assure you, you are very wrong. This is one of my favorite horror movies. It's even based on a real events (this story is NO fiction, it can happen and it is happening all over the world). I've been looking forward to see this movie, and was very excited when i finally got my hands on it. It's one of those movies, that will keep you on the edge of your seat, aka. oldschool suspense movie. Sound is everything in this movie. I really don't understand WHY would anyone put music playing in the background in a horror movie? Always was a fan of horror movies with natural sound, and no music to cover the silence (Blair Witch, REC, etc. but will review those movies later on). Makes it more real. Also this movie was filmed in Romania, my home country, so i know about the story being real (checked it after i watched the movie). I will not go into any details about the movie, because i don't want to plant any ideas in your heads. In a horror movie the less you know before you watch it, the better (when it comes to a good horror movie).
So if you like horror movies (or suspense movies) make sure you watch this one! It's a French movie, so you will probably need subtitles. Don't be lazy to read, it's worth it.
