Synopsis


High Tension
French filmmaker Alexandre Aja writes and directs the slasher film Haute Tension, given the English title Switchblade Romance. Best friends Marie (Cécile De France) and Alex (Maïwenn Le Besco) go out to the countryside to visit Alex's parents. However, a homicidal delivery man (played by Philippe Nahon from Gaspar Noé's brutal movies) ends up at their house and starts killing everyone. Alex and Marie fight for their lives with help from several means of weaponry. Switchblade Romance was shown at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival as part of the Midnight program. The film was aquired by US distributor Lions Gate Films in 2004 and quickly put into turnaround as an NC-17 release, though plans for that were scrapped due to a lack of theater support of the controversial rating. Retitled High Tension, the R-rated version is missing one minute of grisly gore and features a redubbed audio track by star Cécile De France. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

    I cannot recall a more fitting title for a movie. I remember seeing this movie in the theater and literally sitting at the edge of my seat for 90%. It is one of the most tense and gripping horror movies I have seen, and one of my top 5 of all time. I actually hadn't seen it since it was in the theater, and finally picked it up to rewatch. Still intense. Brought it to a friend's house and one of them was literally on the edge of their seat the whole time too! The ending is a little crazy, but the ride there is fantastic. My favorite Alexandre Aja movie. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
