HALLOWEEN ISSUE: High Tension
(A Brutal French Extremity Film w/Strong Female Leads)
This fill is not for the “faint of heart.” It is brutal, however, it offers and incredible story with an ending that will leave you in chills and with topics to talk about to friends and at parties. This is a film with wonderful acting and perfect for people who want to see women as the heroes, vs. the victims in a typical horror/slasher film.
The film is part of the French Extremity school or genre. We won’t ruin it. Just be prepared to be scared and this is a “popcorn movie” for a good Halloween or Friday night scare.
