Alexandre Aja's High Tension is a modern horror classic. A fast paced shocker, it is gore filled, gruesome, and full of suspense. Master Italian horror makeup artist Giannetto de Rossi does a spectacular job with very realistic effects. Philippe Nahon, the butcher from Carne, and I Stand Alone is deeply menacing here as the deranged killer.
