Haute Tension (High Tension)

Plot: Two college friends, Marie and Alexa, encounter loads of trouble while on vacation at Alexa's parents’ country home when a mysterious killer invades their quiet getaway.

Another great french horror movie is Haute Tension. Brutal, bloody and suspenseful with a good story that will mess with your head.
This movie was released in 2003, so I was pretty young when I saw it (16 yo because I think I saw it in 2004) and had no experience with “real” horror movies, so I was affected by this movie. I saw the original french uncut version. It is gruesome and shocking. So the two girls travel to a farmhouse to study for some exams. That same night the doorbell rings and the action begins with 100% violence level and will continue untill the end credits.
If you liked Texas chainsaw massacre you will like this too. If you watch this movie you will raise your horror standards to a new level. This movie delivers exactly what the title promises: high tension. You will feel the adrenaline rush in your body while you watch this. So don’t miss out on this great horror flick. It’s not perfect, but it’s good/very good oldschool horror movie with no mercy.
