THEM (Ils)


Every couple of years I get a little disheartened and jaded about the genre. The movies aren’t good enough, I’ll try to reason. Sometimes an even more depressing notion comes to mind. Maybe I’ve just seen too many of these damn things. Maybe a movie just can’t scare me anymore. This past year I’ve been almost happy to concede that the enjoyment I’ll take out of the genre from now on will come from campy, self-referential splatter flicks with little to offer in the way of a good scare. My reviews are peppered with phrases like,

  • Beth

    I’ve been sent to tell you… there IS something in your closet…

  • Beth

    Wait…this movie is in French Oui?
    And is this a re-make from the 1970 version? And is it at all related to the 1992 Isini?
