Editorial Reviews

Fuelled by sex, booze, drugs and hip hop, Bart, Ladj and Thai get kicked out of a Paris nightclub on Christmas Eve. The three friends meet up with two young ladies, Eve and Yasmine, who invite them to Eve's parents' countryside home. Later, a drunken dinner discussion of sex and evil leads to a recounting of a bawdy tale of a peasant possessed by Sheitan, Persian for Satan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nerve Twitching Nightmare ! February 19, 2007
[Do buy this film!
Its beautiful that vincent cassel agreed to make this film. It was creepy as hell!

its not at all like they just dubbed the texas chainsaw massacre.

absolutely worth your money & your time.]

Kim Chapiron's "SHEITAN" produced by and starring Vincent Cassel is by far one of the freakiest creep-fest's that I have seen in a while. Vincent Cassel is mind-blowingly scary as Joseph the abnormally strong bazerko housekeeper. Throughout the first half of the film your stricken with that unsettling(not quite right)feeling that something horrible is just around the corner. When you get to the halfway mark of the film horrible slowly starts to reveal itself in small but disturbing little doses. When you hit 3/4 the way through,any sense of normality you have left is swiftly pulled out from under your feet and you are then thrusted into a deliriously nightmarish rollercoaster of a climax that stands to be IMO one of the most skin-crawlingly frightning endings in horror film history. This is another unique & truly creative french kiss to the American backwoods horror film and also more proof that the real horror movies are being made by foreign independent film makers.

4.0 out of 5 stars BOOM! July 18, 2008
Sheitan (Kim Chapiron, 2006)

Once again, we in America have managed to entirely miss a great French horror film. I ask once again why on earth we got a theatrical release of Haute Tension when this-- with a stronger cast (including Vincent Cassel, who seems to play very well on this side of the pond), a better story (with fewer plot holes), a cracking script, and a sense of outright weird that it shares with the similarly wonderful Calvaire, went straight to DVD in the States. It's a question I may never be able to answer. But I'm glad we at least got a DVD release; most Americans are still waiting to get their hands on, say, Jaime Balaguero's [REC] as I write this. In any case, Sheitan (and Calvaire, the film I will spend most of this review comparing with it) has a weirdness about it I'm not sure I've seen since Deliverance. And I highly recommend it for anyone who found Deliverance in any way enjoyable, and for much the same reasons.

The plot: three friends, Bart (Olivier Bartelemy), Thai (Nico le Phat Tan), and Ladj (Ladj Ly), are clubbing in Paris when they meet some lovely young women. Soon after, Bart gets into a fistfight and is unceremoniously thrown out. Eve (Roxane Mesquida), still looking to party, suggests they all head out to her parents' house in the country. (The parents are, of course, away.) On the way, they run into Eve's parents' caretaker, Joseph (Vincent Cassel), who seems to be not all there, but harmless. As the weekend progresses, the three friends, but especially Bart, realizes that all is not what it seems; while the other two have each glommed onto one of the girls, Bart finds himself the object of Joseph's affection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Derivative Nonsense August 12, 2009
Mild Spoiler Alert.

I've learned that anytime Maxim magazine reviewer Pete Hammond or "Ain't It Cool News" gives anything a rave, you can bet it's gonna suck. That's the case here. There's nothing satisfying about this film; in fact, I was sorely disappointed that our hapless young'uns aren't slaughtered in outlandishly gruesome ways given that all three male protagonists are reprehensible twits. The only decent character, Yasmine, is last seen running after her friend's car--the driver doesn't bother to rescue his love interest and instead kicks another friend out of the vehicle and takes off to save his own cheatin' butt! (We're supposed to care about these characters?!) Illogical plot, howl-worthy dialogue, and a cross-dressing "wife" equal one-and-half hours of your life you'd be better off spending on...well...pretty much anything else.

4.0 out of 5 stars humorous and unnerving in french September 4, 2012
By .fgd
Too many negative reviews here whining about originality over this French film. Look to unto your own cookie-cutter American genre stop picking on something different because its foreign.
I enjoyed seeing goofy done in French whilst still being cool. Off the bat the gang sees right through Old Uncle as anyone who keeps grinning like a maniac like that has got to have another agenda. Thing is the three guys in the gang have their own agenda discreetly trying to get laid before the two girls figure out they are just behaving at mature. It was fun to see them party and muddle on through and i loved the old French farm house and the marionettes. I have seen enough films that exchange doll parts for human ones to know early on what was on the menu ditto the gene-deficient locals. Meanwhile Old Uncle is grinning less and less for fun while everyone is oblivious to the real danger they are in. There is a nightmare behind the tom-foolery that the film carries off much better than an American film ever could. In this aspect it is mostly a thriller than a horror although Uncle's gory muppet does deliver at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sheitan October 10, 2010
A group of drunken friends are joined by their cute bartender, who invites them out to stay in her beautiful country home. Once they arrive, they are introduced to her deranged housekeeper, Joseph, and the rest of the town's strange inhabitants. As the night goes on, sex, drugs, and alcohol begin to steer the conversation, and Joseph tells them a tale of a poor farmer who sold his soul to the devil. From here, things quickly grow out of control as Joseph becomes their instrument of destruction in the name of Sheitan! SHEITAN is a twisted mind-bender that can't help but draw comparisons to 2004's CALVAIRE. Director Kim Chapiron spends the majority of the time developing his freakishly off-setting characters, which pays off in the end when all hell finally breaks loose. The weight of the film's success lies in the hands of Vincent Cassel as the demented Joseph, who leaves the viewer in a state of unease well before any of the true horror sets in. His commanding on-screen presence when he is pleasant and smiling is frightening enough, but when he shifts into serious mode, he is downright terrifying. Although they are all drunken, horny buffoons, the rest of the cast members put in solid efforts as well, even if it is unlikely that the audience will side with them in the end. Chapiron might have considered fleshing out more of the backstory behind Joseph and his depraved family, but as it stands, SHEITAN is a devilishly good time!
