What a ugly movie with horrible parts with the gore and the twist in the movie is so stupid and so missed place that the movie losted me after the twist.

Well done European slasher. Grueling, tense and very gory. It's got the right blend to satisfy anyone's horror craving.

When I first watched Haute Tension...I didn't quite know what I was in for. It sounded like your typical young-people-being-tormented-by-some-psycho film. HOWEVER. What made this film different to me was how well they dished out the, well, tension. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. My only complaint is it's cliche ending....which is why I rated it 3 stars instead of 3.5 or 4. However, it's still very worth watching in my eyes, because it's creepy, it's gory, and it keeps you watching.

Better known as Haute Tension in its native country, this is a rare beast, a French Slasher movie, which seems like a blood soaked relic from the 80s. Pushing the Gore and bloodletting to the very limit, Switchblade Romance is not for the faint hearted or those easily offended by gruesome video Nasties. What lifts this movie from the behind the counter bargain bin is its style, its relentless pace, superior bloody makeup effects (by legendary makeup artist Gianetto De Rossi) and a daft but incredulous twist that is so insane, its almost brilliant.

Haute Tension

This one surprised me. I had heard stuff about this film for years, but once I actually started to watch it, I wasn't really getting anything out of it. By the hour mark, I thought by the the time it was finished I was going to ultimately find the movie to be a passive 2000s slasher-movie, although nicely-shot, and and it had some interesting play on the cliches, it was nothing that I was completely interested in. However, those last heart-pounding, mind-bending, 20 minutes; the section of the film that makes it so the movie deserves its title of "High Tension", was what made the movie unique and unforgettable.

The use of gore is definitely a huge factor in the film, although the terror has almost nothing to do with that aspect, in fact that film could have worked just as well for me, ...
