Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Like the fairly recent Cabin Fever and like earlier slasher films of that grisly ilk, High Tension takes a fairly straightforward approach to its essential reason for being, namely the stagecraft of death.
Fresh: Purely as an exercise in style, this movie has its moments.
Fresh: Deftly juggles gore and suspense.
Rotten: Very bloody, sometimes difficult to watch and sometimes just tiresome.
Heavily Edited Censored Version
This is a heavily edited censored version with awful dubbing. This film is a classick and it deserves to be seen as it was meant to be. It is one of the most balls-out hardcore movies you will ever see. Go out and rent or buy the uncut French version with subtitles, do not buy on iTunes! Oh and if you think this movie is violent, sick, and disturbing then check out INSIDE and FRONTIER(S).
THE BEST IF U LIKE TWISTED
wow....this movie was sooo twisted. but thats the way i like it...a twisted thriller/suspense!!!!! u wont regret buying it
Best Horror of the 00's
Forget Saw, Hostel, and The Devil's Rejects. High Tension will horrify you with images so shocking that you won't believe your eyes. This movie is like your worst nightmare, it will rock you. This movie is amazing and that's all there is to it. You don't know what fear is until you have seen High Tension.
