| Strange, did you say strange?
Utterly low-budget-horror-wannabe movie telling the story of a young girl lost in the middle of nowhere, chased a by a strange man. I'm not even sure I understood all the subplots involved...

Brian Yuzna fans, move over, it is not a gory-fast-and-furious horror gem. CLASH is rather slow, concentrating on the atmosphere more than the effects.

Rather unusual for a French horror movie, Raphael Delpard chose an obscure plot mixed with some gruesome effects (good ones, by the way), full of incoherences, but...it's working, as an essay on arthouse fantasy movie. Bizarre atmosphere -shot in an abandoned warehouse-, foggy sets...it's supposed to be the representation of a nightmare. None of what's happening is rational or explainable.

At the end, it depends on your mood: it's either irritating or clever in some parts, amateurish or made in a highly professional way of making you think it's amateurish. Catherine Alric (who bears a frightening resemblance with Catherine Deneuve) is impressive as the young heroïne and so is -Pierre Clementi as the stalker. Though this movie is really really hard to find you should give it a try if you can. A kinda thinking man's horror movie.

But if you're looking for a real french horror movie, very scary, full of gory effects and a very special screenplay, try the awesome DEMON DANS L'ILE. It's a masterpiece of fear.
