Four friends looking for a good time are lured into a strange and dangerous netherworld in this wildly offbeat horror film from France. It's Christmas Eve, and twentysomethings Bart (Olivier Barthelemy), Ladj (Ladj Ly), Thai (Nico Le Phat Tan), and Yasmine (Leila Bekhti) are bored and looking for fun. They end up at a rowdy dance club where, after Bart gets into a fight, they meet Eve (Roxane Mesquida), a sexy girl who seems to take a liking to the three guys. Eve invites the foursome to come

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Manages a playful sensibility, reveling in its repugnance and enjoying the heck out of its twisted ending.
At the end, you feel they should have thrown out Rosemary's baby with the bath water.
If only Cassel had saved his performance for a collaboration with the League of Gentlemen.
Despite the air of brutish aggression and sexual predatoriness, little happens until gory retribution finally rears its head.
The film, shot in a demented, headlong style, seems to have no idea of its direction other than the shelf marked "cult".
As a grotesque parody of the hillbilly-terror genre, it has a real wit and energy.
A contrived and very self-conscious genre piece of hardcore black-comedy horror in a 1970s vein.
Has plenty of atmosphere but can't make up for unpleasant characters and a meandering story.
Vincent Cassel is the overpowering presence here; his perma-grinning, unkempt Joseph is brilliantly unsettling.
Despite some pretentious touches - a night-spot named Club Styxx, a guard dog called Cerberus - Satan doesn't take itself too seriously.
Entertaining and genuinely creepy at times this boasts strong performances from its French cast.
