“High Tension” (2003)

There are some creatively gory moments (the violence in this film is seriously off the charts), but other than that, there’s not much this film has to offer. The biggest issue is that there are logical gaps within the story, and the film’s big twist ending, while solving some of them, actually winds up creating more. The twist could’ve worked, if it hadn’t contradicted what had been previously established. As is, it’s a good idea, that wasn’t fully thought out. Also, the film begins testing the patience of its audience by stretching its paper-thin premise to feature length runtime. And the instances of creative over-the-top carnage simply aren’t enough to justify a hearty recommendation.
