    Creepy psychological horror/thriller. A student who was haunted by night terrors when she was younger realizes she may not be away from them yet as her and those close to her start experiencing some freaky shit. If you were/are afraid of the dark and always wondered what might be lurking in the corner, under the bed or in the cupboard then They will either be one of your favourite, or least favourite films ever! Its strength lays in the suggestive style of direction and feel, making They quite suspenseful at times. Quite a cool twist at the end to. This was little heard of when it came out in 2002 but fans of the kind of horror that's more suspense and tension filled as opposed of full gore should check it out.

    <B><I>THEY</I> (2002)</B> WRITTEN BY: Brendan Hood DIRECTED BY: Robert Harmon FEATURING: Laura Regan, Marc Blucas and Ethan Embry GENRE: <B>HORROR</B> <B>PLOT:</B> A woman is pursued by those uncertain things which dwelled under your childhood bed at night. COMMENTS: If you ever suffered from childhood night terrors, or fear of the dark, then you must have been convinced there was a boogeyman under your bed. According to the premise of THEY, you weren't far off the mark. If you're reading this, it isn't because the boogeyman under your bed didn't eat, you, it's because he hasn't eaten you YET. When a childhood friend reappears in psych grad student Julia's (Regan) life, he confides in her that he's being pursued by someting unimaginable. Shortly after his enusing death, Julia remembers that they both shared childhoond night terrors. She got over them, her now dead friend did not. Julia's night terrors resurface with a vengeance. Soon Julia comes to the conviction that her re-burgeoning fear of the dark is not groundless; in the gloom of shadow and night, from a horrible, nearby dimension, lurk unspeakable creatures, which only she and a few other hapless people can see. The monsters have "marked" Julia and start to pursue her wherever the lights are dim. And if the light is too bright, they can make it go out. As Julia succumbs to her fears, she begins behaving irrationally. Her boyfriend, companions, and Psych professor mentor think she's going crazy. But is she? More cerebral than most horror movies, THEY is delightfully dark and eerie. While it starts out looking like a teenage movie, after its first, mildly melodramatic plot point, it becomes a macabre, well-constructed story. THEY is a scary movie that's actually, well...scary! THEY preys on our ubiquitously human dread of the unknown. The film explores the question of just what might really be lurking all in those dark nooks, crannies, and convoluted dark spaces tucked into the edges and innards of our modern, civilized landscape. There's little gore, and no fanged stereotypical monsters in THEY. Instead the film scrapes its knife edge against the limitless possibilities lurking in our imaginations. Creating chills by substituting incipient, morbid anticipation for clichés, THEY builds to a clever, unconventional climax. With it's chilling emphasis on sounds and textures, the grotesque look and babble of claustrophobic forbidden, damp wet places, crawlspaces, subterranean passages, and maddening plumbing shafts and air vents, THEY will ensure you don't go down into your basement without a powerful light and a strong companion for months to come.
