High tension

This is a horror movie with a NC-17 rating for extreme graphic violence, so read this bit of news with caution.

This is an art house horror movie directed by Alexandre Aja. It stars: Cecile de France, Maiween Le Besco and Maiwenn Le Besco. Hell the trailer for this movie looks too intense.

The story: Two worlds collide disastrously -- a rusted delivery van barrels through cornfields; meanwhile, Alex has brought her friend Marie to spend the weekend at her parents' country farmhouse to escape the hectic pace of Paris. Behind the van's wheel, the driver caresses ripped photos of young women; at the same time the girls get ready for bed dishing girly gossip. At the end of the road lies an isolated house, caught in the van's headlights; as the girls close their eyes, an intruder is about to turn their innocent dreams into a relentless and bloody nightmare.

Prepare to take a white-knuckle journey into the heart of fear with Lions Gate Films’ HIGH TENSION, the terrifying story of two girls’ battle for survival at the hands of a sadistic psychopath. Marking a return to the nightmarish intensity of 1970s horror classics, director Alexandre Aja reduces the genre to its bare essentials, building a narrative of intensifying dread that culminates in a truly shocking climax. Relentlessly tightening the screws of suspense, HIGH TENSION will have you struggling to catch your breath .

To be released : June 3rd, 2005

This movie is based on a book I read but I can't remember which one. It had a different title and I want to say it was Dean Koontz but the plot was almost identical. I wonder why that wasn't mentioned anywhere.
