- Synopsis / Plot
- Marie and Alexia are schoolmates and best friends. Hoping to prepare for their college exams in peace and quiet, they decide to spend a weekend in the country at Alexia’s parents’ secluded farmhouse. But in the dead of night, a stranger knocks on the front door. And with the first swing of his knife, the girls’ idyllic weekend turns into an endless night of terror…
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. The film stars Cécile de France, Maïwenn and Philippe Nahon, from a script by Aja and Gregory Levasseur.
