High Tension: Unrated Version

Alexandre Aja

Published December 08, 2005.High Tension: Unrated VersionDirected by: Alexandre Aja(Lions Gate)For completists, you get in one package both the original French cut and the watered down English dub version. Lost amid complaints of the (admittedly) terrible ending, is the most relentless, imaginatively shot and sustainedly suspenseful straight horror film of 2005. In terms of taste and ideology, the Alexandre Aja serial killer chase pic is pretty disgusting. Like Dario Argento's better movies, it has the nerve and style to justify that uneasiness.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
