Editorial Reviews

The gorgeous rising French star Fanny Valette (Moliere, Little Jerusalem) leads a cast of sexy young actors in the riveting action suspense film High Lane. A group of friends on a climbing vacation ignore warnings that the mountains are closed and start their ascent anyway. Collapsing bridges, bear traps and other dangers threaten to splinter the group…when the real hell begins and an unseen villain begins picking them off one by one. Combining the heart-stopping suspense of Cliffhanger with the mortal dread of a serial killer, High Lane is certain to cure you of a fear of heights: who cares about the fall when it gets you away from a lunatic?

"High Lane" was directed by Abel Ferry and stars Fanny Valette (Chloé), Johan Libéreau (Loïc), Raphaël Lenglet (Guillaume), Nicolas Giraud (Fred), and Maud Wyler (Karine) as a group of friends (two couples and a fifth wheel) who decide to go mountain climbing on a mountain closed for repairs and end up getting hunted by a deranged killer.

The climbers see that the pass is closed but go anyway, a classic beginning to a nature horror movie where nature enthusiasts bite off more than they can chew. It seems like it will be easy going since this mountain is equipped for safe climbing complete with ladder rungs wedged deep into the mountain and steel safety cords to hook onto. Everyone is wearing safety harnesses with double lanyard hooks so this should be simple, right?

The first setback besides the pass being closed is that Loïc clearly has a fear of heights combined with vertigo that he is attempting to hide from the group to keep his pride intact in front of his girlfriend, Chloé's ex, Guilliaume who is still in love with her. The action begins fast and one accident after another occurs until it becomes clear these are not just accidents and someone is out to get these hikers.

I already have a pretty established fear of heights so watching even the "fun" portions of their trip was enough to tie my stomach in knots. The movie gets more intense as every worse case scenario begins to enfold on them. The tension between the ex-boyfriend and the new boyfriend is heated up by the stress of trying to find a way out despite losing group members. It is a shorter film, only one hour and twenty minutes so there is no wasted screen time dwelling on talking about feelings or back story when the situation is so much more dire than that. This is a terrifying movie that tensed me up considerably throughout!!

The Scenery in High Lane is beautiful and the camera angles are cleverly shot.
It does for Acrophobia what The Descent did for Claustrophobia. It takes that fear and runs with it making the film interesting and scary before we are ever introduced to the unforeseen terror in the form of a crazed disfigured mountain freak.

When we as a viewer go into the psycho's Lair it is very poorly lit and hard to make out some of the things that are happening,I was able to see enough to figure out what was up but I wanted to see more.What I could make out were hanging lamps made out of human heads,lots of body parts and somewhere you wouldn't want to visit. The effects were well done and not over the top but enough to satisfy us Slasher lovers appetite for carnage.

Just as in the Descent in the beginning of their adventure they show a group photo being taken and at the end of the film they show the same photo of everyone, arms around each others shoulders looking carefree and happy.That to me was a direct rip off,this is in no way a spoiler.
There is some jealous boyfriend and Ex boyfriend drama that weaves it's way into the plot and I found it to be useful in creating more tension and extreme circumstances.

There is no explanation given for the origin of the villain But instead focus on flashbacks of an experience that happened to one of the main characters "Fanny Valette" who is a nurse .I suppose it was suppose to be the big "OH I GET IT" moment" when all is revealed, but it was much ado about little, in my opinion.There are some very good fight for survival scenes and power struggles .I really wanted to love this movie because crazed wilderness freaks are one of my favorite Slasher sub genres,ala,Wrong Turn,The Hills Have eyes,Just Before Dawn etc.I give it 3 and 1/2 stars..

“High Lane” is a French horror movie made in 2009 about five people who go hiking/mountain climbing in the mountains of Croatia. I am not certain if the movie was indeed shot and filmed in Croatia, but the scenery was quite breath taking. I guess this is a good of time as any to say the dubbing in the film isn’t that bad, not great, but not bad. Anyway, out of the five folks involved, two of them are a guy and a gal who are in charge of the exhibition (so to speak) and are a couple. The other three are another girl and two guys, but never fear there is a good recipe for a love triangle. I will leave it at that.

This move is about eighty minutes long and the first forty minutes are of our five friends hiking and climbing. There are a couple of really intense scenes involving people almost falling, climbing cables snapping and a moment with a high walking bridge, that needs to be seen to be believed. I am not sure if the actors and actresses did their own stunts or not, but the performances were impressive.

Once we hit the forty minute mark, give or take a few minutes, the movie goes downhill extremely fast. This is mainly due to the fact that this movie turns into a lousy “Wrong Turn”-ish slasher movie. Let the record show, I am a hard core silly fan of slasher movies, when done right. The “Wrong Turn” films are sort of lame, in my humble opinion. Nevertheless, the killer looks like a young Tom Petty with rabies; this in itself is a riot. So a movie that has some potential ends up being a run of the mill crap-fest, but I suppose if one is not looking for much it might be fun. Personally, I say pass…..
