Editorial Reviews

Review

. . . 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

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid horror film. March 26, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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
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. There is no great reason why all this happens--it's just an effective mood setting scare piece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old-fashioned Suspense and Modern Fears Combine April 6, 2008
Format:DVD
French couple Clementine (Olivia Bonamy) and Lucas (Michael Cohen) are living near Bucharest, Romania. Clementine teaches at a French school and Lucas is a writer trying to work on his latest story but is struggling with writer's block. One a night in the middle of October a mother and daughter are involved in a car accident near where Clementine and Lucas are living. They are safe after the crash, but the mother disappears and the daughter is later strangled in the car. Clementine passes the accident scene on her way back from school the next day. That afternoon she and Lucas enjoy a playful evening of eating, laughing, and love making. Then Clementine hears some strange noises. She wakens Lucas and they investigate only to find Clementine's car being stolen. The lights go out, the phone goes dead, the strange noises return in force, and seemingly alien lights are seen outside of the house and shining through all the windows. The couple find themselves at siege and fighting for their lives as they are invaded and attacked by THEM.

With a running time of less than eighty minutes, THEM is an incredibly short film. However, it's also a highly engaging film. Basically, the movie revolves around two people being stalked and hunted in their own home by beings that aren't revealed until the end. The filmmakers did an excellent job of making Lucas and Clem seem like two very real and likeable people. They are a happy and young couple, deeply in love who seem to enjoy life. What happens to them, is so very frightening because it ties into one of the deepest fears that people have, the fear of one's home being broken into and not being able to do anything about it.
