The Good:
I got nothing.

The Bad:
The characters in this movie were so dumb (and why do all of these types of films always make supposedly educated people behave like nincompoops?) and the early part of the film did such a piss poor job of establishing them that once the bad stuff started happening to them I found it hard to care.
The effects were also really bad. It looked like something made for a cheap, 3rd-rate video game than for a major motion picture.
And it is hard to fathom that Grégory Levasseur, the guy who wrote the screenplay for HIGH TENSION, is the director of this mess.

The Ugly
Dennis O’Hare’s agent must really hate him to let him get involved in this movie.

Final Verdict: This movie was dreadful and shows that a good writer doesn’t always make a good director because nothing about the direction of this film rose above the crappiest B-movie. This movie was just a colossal waste of time for the folks who made and for anyone who is unfortunate enough to make the mistake of watching it.

Grade: F
