I already knew this film was going to be amazing because it’s French, and I still have yet to be let down by a French horror.  This movie was so random and all over the place but it was truly freaky and all the gore and violence was bizarre and spot on.  The story itself wasn’t really all that great, but it was so interesting and unique, you just go with it.  If I had to rate the story alone, I’d really only give it a 3.5/5.  However the gore really really makes up for it to the point that I ALMOST wanted to give it a 4.  The story centers around a girl who is training to become a nurse and is being mentored by an older caregiver.  She brings her from house to house as they assist elderly patients with medications.  One particular house is rumored to hold a secret treasure that our main character is too intrigued by to not explore it.  The house is haunted and once she and her boyfriend go to ravage it for the treasure, the ghosts come out to play…… and kill.  The movie is really entertaining and also scary.  The imagery of the ghosts and the ideas of some of the events are very haunting. There’s lots of really random gore, which I liked, and all horror genres almost seem to just bind together with how random everything goes.  Although this movie doesn’t get 4 stars, mainly because the storyline just wasn’t fucked up enough for me, I still think this is a must-see for all horror fans.  This really is a breath of fresh air from all the movies that stick to just one genre rather since this one explores and implements facets of all other horror genres. Get ready to take a gory and also confusing ride with this French flick.  Update me and let me know what you thought of the film in the comments.
