Mean-spirited, violent and undeniably slick, this controversial French horror hit finally assaults American shores (albeit in an edited version). The story has a pair of sexy young gals heading out to the country for a little vacation. Unfortunately, they run into a nasty (and I mean nasty) serial killer, and our main gal has got to resort to some bloody retribution to rescue her friend. Of course, there are the usual gaps in logic, and the film's tricksy ending is a love-it-or-hate-it (mostly hate it) proposition. Fans of sadistic horror will get their money's worth, however. 85 minutes NC-17.
