HIGH TENSION (aka Switchblade Romance) aka Haute Tension d. Alexandre Aja, 2003 + Recorded intro by author Alexandra West (09 MAY 18:00 – 4K) / Part of CRUEL FLESH: FILMS OF THE NEW FRENCH EXTREMITY at BFI Southbank.

“A ridiculously violent slasher with a controversial twist, HIGH TENSION marked the New French Extremity’s pivot into pure horror, taking American influences and raising the terror not one, but several dozen notches. Marie (Cécile de France) and Alexia (Maïwenn), two besties taking a trip to a secluded cabin in the woods, are attacked relentlessly by a beastly killer.” (BFI)

Contains scenes of graphic violence that some viewers may find distressing.
