Product Description

The Film That Terrified Europe Has Come To America

A young couple lead a happy, quiet life in the countryside. But little do they know they're being surrounded. When night falls, the couple will come face to face with THEM. Who are they? What do they want? The answers will take them to the very limits of fear itself."


. . . one of the most intelligent and unnerving horror films in recent memory. --The Chicago Tribune

. . . leaves the audience thoroughly creeped out, heading home to lock their doors, turn on the lights and swear off horror movies until the next one. --The Seattle Times

. . . revels in atmosphere, using long unbroken takes and ambient sound to lull you into complacency before unleashing nerve-jangling shocks. --The New York Times

Writer and Director team David Moreau and Xavier Palud know fear and have made a tense horror film with moments of greatness. They know it's not what you see that scares you but what you don't, tapping into childhood fears such as the dark, strange noises, and thinking you've seen something which helps with brilliant camerawork.
The film starts in Bucharest Romania with a mother and daughter arguing in their car when they have a car accident. The car accident in itself is scary because the filmmakers have chosen to do a documentary style which adds that, this is really happening feel along the lines of Tobe Hooper's classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That real feel is appropriate being we are told at the beginning the film is inspired by actual events and again reminded in greater detail about said events at the end, so you can't necessarily repeat this is just a movie to yourself. As a side note the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie trailer plays automatically once you put in the dvd and is also freaky and gets you ready for the film, but back to the accident. The mother crashes her car into a utility pole and gets out to open the hood while her daughter starts the car, we can't see the mom from where the daughter is and she suddenly stops responding. When the girl gets out to look she cannot find her mom so she calls mom over and over to the dark woods and finally a voice other than her mom's answers back from the woods.
The next scene we meet Clementine (Olivia Bonamy) a beautiful school teacher from France who is finishing up a long day and heading home to her lover Lucas. On her way to their secluded new home which they appear to be renovating she sees police and tow trucks tending to the car mentioned above which crashed not far from their house.

Format: DVD
The best thing 'Them' has going for it is the pacing, which is exactly what many people will think is the worst thing. If you are more in tune with the fast paced horror of a '28 Days After' or the 'Underworld' saga, then this movie is probably not for you. If, instead, you appreciate slow and steady tension that builds thoughout the movie, then you'll find a lot to like with 'Them'. That's not to say that it treads on any new ground necessarily, but only that the directors make excellent use of the techniques available to tell their fairly predictable horror tale.

The movie follows Clementine, a French language teacher in Romania, and her writer boyfriend Lucas, who are terrorized one night by unknown tormentors in their isolated country home. As I said, nothing new here that hasn't been done from as far back as 'When a Stranger Calls' from the late 70's. Except this time it's based on a true story, and directors Moreau and Palud make the most of it with great camera work and editing. Both Olivia Bonamy and Michael Cohen as the strangers in a strange land turn in excellent performances as well, and honestly, I rooted for them all the way up until the end.

Several things added to the baseline creepiness of this movie, none of which would top watching this all by yourself, late at night, in a country home far from any help. Knowing that it was based on true events is downright morbid and chilling. Also, the director's judicious use of music adds another layer to the tension by not overplaying their hand (I'd have to watch it again, but there's very little I remember for a soundtrack so to speak. Only the sound effects from the woods).

Patience is the word here, as it does take several minutes before the main story gets going.

I wish that someday someone will make a movie about A Remote Country House With Trapped Victims that would really be believable.

THEM suffers from the same improbable actions of the victims that destroyed THE STRANGERS--which is yet another movie about two people trapped in a house by unseen force.

In THEM,the husband and wife hear weird noises and then they see that someone has driven their car down the driveway. The husband goes to investigate in the pitch dark--without a flashlight or any kind of weapon. Although they have a cell phone, they only use it once--and then it's forgotten for the rest of the movie.

This is what drove me crazy--throughout the entire movie, neither the man nor the woman ever arm themselves with even a butter knife or a nail file--until the very end when the man does finally grab a crowbar for defense.

One would think that living out in the middle of the woods with no neighbors that you'd at least have a hunting rifle, a bow and arrow or a BB gun. And after you've received bizarre phone calls, and hear strange noises in the house and see someone sitting in your car in the pitch dark that you'd either call 911 or arm yourself with something--like a curtain rod or a slab of frozen steak from the freezer.

Format: DVD
Minimalism in the horror genre is an underrated commodity. Every film that favors psychology over shocks has its instant detractors because we've become accustomed to having our senses assaulted. The taut 2007 French film "Them" ("ILS") is as sparse and self-contained as any movie can be. Essentially resting on two characters and one primary setting, "Them" is akin to the 2008 American thriller "The Strangers." In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if "Them" helped to inspire the execution of "The Strangers," as both films effectively took a simple, but well worn concept, and made audiences feel the tension anew. Set in Bucharest, "Them" is a film of isolation and helplessness that pits an everyday couple against a horde of unseen assailants in a battle for their lives.

After an obligatory set-up establishing a mysterious danger lurking in the woods, "Them" introduces us to Clementine and Lucas--a young professional couple residing at a sprawling Romanian estate. Seemed a terrible place to live to me, but to each their own! Olivia Bonamy and Michael Cohen are terrifically likable, so that makes the suspense much more palpable--unlike many other horror movies, you don't necessarily want to see this couple tortured! What begins as a bump in the dark soon escalates into a full-on nightmare as they are assaulted from all sides. Resilient and practical, the couple first try to stand and then try to run. Using the huge house and its surrounding grounds to their advantage, this becomes a taunting game of cat-and-mouse. Can they make it until morning?

Like other movies in this genre, "Them" doesn't try to explain too much.

Why the delay?
Because The Strangers was popular at the time. It's the remake, don'tchaknow?
