Plot – Spoilers:
Just like the French horror Inside, this one too is set on Christmas Eve. A group of friends are out clubbing and looking to get laid, when they’re not busy being pricks. They pick up an attractive girl Eve and head to her place in the country, since they’re mostly losers with nothing better to offer.
When they get there, they meet a weird man with a perpetual grin, whom Eve introduces as Joseph, the housekeeper. Eve’s parents are not home and the house is littered with morbid dolls which Eve explains as her father’s former profession. Joseph displays an odd affection for one of them Bart, and offers to show them around the village where they meet boorish and strange folk, none of which really makes a difference to them because they’re not too different in their own city ways.
As the night draws in and their libido soars, Joseph gets weirder and so does the horror.
wtf was that ending?????? lowkey still confused
A Demon… Not Satan. Yet both possess diabolic guises, it’s Arabic.
Loose morals and small dick energy imo, but a decent watch
Silly, funny and confusing but entertaining nonetheless.
Really brilliant, loved every second.
Spoilers: I figured it was a retelling of the birth of man, Bart, the sinner, chases Eve (the apple, always dressed in red), and through an act of sin (the incest) they are able to create a baby from Bart and his actions (the birth of Man). Best I could figure it, especially with the apple in the mouth right at the end as a kind of obvious nod.
Three stars… Not sure how I missed this one… Bit daft and took an hour for owt dramatic to happen but quite funny and very French.. as in modern french .. it’s no Raw or Irreversible but fun way to kill 89 mins
Things don’t have to make sense, as long as they’re fun & interesting.
genial comme film>Cassel cartonne!!
I was expecting more splatter but it was a good movie, the most fucked up part for me was the girl playing with the dog, haha.
