Synopsis:
Clementine (Olivia Bonamy), a beautiful young teacher and her lover Lucas (Michaël Cohen) live an idyllic, isolated existence in a large house in the middle of rural paradise. But tonight, that paradise will be shattered beyond all comprehension. Because something is watching. Something is waiting. Something unknown, unhinged and unrelenting. They are all around, they are in the shadows, and they will stop at nothing to get inside the distraught couple's dark, cavernous home. As blind panic takes over, Clementine and Lucas must face a terrifying test of endurance to discover the true nature of the evil just outside their door - the true nature of "them".
Nerve-shredding suspenseful and ferociously uncompromising, "Them" is an all too real journey to the very limits of fear itself. You'll never feel safe in your home again.

Very effective - spoilers. - Them review by NP

Spoiler Alert

This French/Romanian film features Olivia Bonamy and Michaël Cohen as Clémentine and Lucas, a couple whose lives are about to get very unpleasant. Torture, ritualistic brutality and an increasing atmosphere of ‘we’re not going to get out of this’ permeates throughout this intimately told story of genuine horror. This is all the more frightening because, if the blurb is to be believed, it was based on true events.

Feral, murderous children is a theme that isn’t new. But if handled well, it can be shocking. And so it is here. That the atrocities occur so close to ‘respectable’ civilisation injects and extra dimension into it. As Clémentine impotently screams for help by a roadside full of commuters too busy to see or help, it is frustrating for the viewer that she is in such continual straits.

Set up as one big, futile rush for freedom amidst moments of graphic horror and overwhelming hopelessness (courtesy of directors/writers David Moreau and Xavier Palud) the story might prove to be too thin for some. However, the 77-minute set-piece contains enough jeopardy and nastiness to appeal to me. Recommended.
