Them (2006) Review:
This French/Romanian movie is the first full-length feature by the directing duo David Moreau/Xavier Palud (who made the American remake of The Eye). It is a pioneer of the home invasion genre and contributed to the current success of the sub-genre nowadays (The Strangers, You’re next, Inside, The Purge, etc.).
The movie is best described in two words: stress and oppression. This young couple is attacked in their house during the night. You do not get to see the assailants, which makes the action even more stressful. The invaders very cleverly use noise to make it even more frightening. The attacks are vicious and the ripostes violent. Thereee is almost no graphical gore to be seen, yet the movie is psychologically quite violent.
The movie is also quite short, which is a good thing since the plot is super thin and the concept is pretty much used to the bone after one hour of the movie. The work done on the light, sound, and camera effect is superb. Only the ending might be seen by some as a little to light for what is close to being a masterpiece of horror cinema.
