You may remember a little movie from a few year ago called The Strangers; a couple comes home from a wedding to their isolated country home, and are set upon by a trio of mask wearing killers, who want to make them piss themselves. And die. Well that movie bears a striking resemblance to the much better French film, Ils.
The creepy bus of death.
Ils is also the story of a young couple living in the isolated Romanian countryside, who are set upon by a gang of mask wielding killers, who seem to enjoy making them piss themselves... only the creepers in Ils have two advantages over those in The Strangers; first and foremost they are kids, which makes it infinitely creepier. And second, they have those friggin' noisemaker thingys, which are always creepy, even at parties.
How can you not hear that noisemaker that close?!?
The fact that there are six of them don't help matters either, especially because they really like to "Play" By play, the six year old of the group means kill people and maybe rape them once their dead. Remind me to never visit Romania.
The Master Says-Them (Ils) is a great French horror flick that more
American audiences need to see. As creepy kids movies go, it's got to rank up there based on sheer brutality alone. And again, those damn noisemakers they use... I still hear them in my sleep sometimes...
