Essentially the French take on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which sounded like something I was game for. There were definitely some things I liked about this one, but ultimately it just didn't work for me. It's way too slickly and stylishly edited, with speed ups and slow downs and rapid cutting and all that shit, like almost music video style, which I don't think usually works in the genre. It never really manages to create a tone or build the right rhythm, and doesn't end up amounting to much.
