    <div align=center><b>SAINTS-MARTYRS-DES-DAMNÉS (2005) directed by Robin Aubert starring François Chénier, Isabelle Blais, Patrice Robitaille</b></div><p><div align=justify>A journalist with a sixth sense, two old twin sisters with the same name, a masked mechanic, a mayor with an Elvis harido, a retarded who knows plenty thanks to his Teddy bear, a dead bride who appears once in a while, a missing photograph, beautiful hippie girl living in a field, a mad scientist and a sphere-shaped monster with 70 eyes and two giant lungs. Add a <i>Twin Peaks</i> feel to those and plenty of clichés, you'll get the only French-Canadian horror/fatanstic thriller/science-fiction/romance picture ever to be made.<p><i>Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés</i> is a total mess, the plot is confusing, yet intriguing, some stuff seems to be left unexplained if you dont pay enough attention but its good one good quality, the one that makes that type of movie effective. Its very moody. Steve Asselin's cinematography is amazing, as usual. The film looks good in every way possible. Wether is the lighting, the art direction, the visual effects, they all look the best they could and that is why this film works, cause its not cheap. In the other hand, sometimes the editing is messy, there are some cheap scares but its never laughable and its defiantely weird.<p>The cast is great, especially in terms of supporting character, actor-turned-director Robin Aubert cast people he worked with before and we get some memorable performances from them. Germain Houde and Alexis Martin do a good job. patrice Robitaille is natural, as usual. Isabelle Blais feels a bit underused but François Chénier, in the lead, can barely make us forget about his past and that character he played in that TV show for teenagers for so long.<p><i>Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés</i> is far from original, all the themes have been touched before in better movies. The quest for immortality, discovering its own origin, investigating fantastic events and more. The film is quite well-paced until after a bit more than one hour, it switches gear and slow down with some out-of-nowhere romance that might feel useless a bit and there are way too much explanation before the climax. Most of the times characters, including the lead, appear where ever they need to be and thats a bit annoying. Still, I would recommend the film for the atmosphere it creates and the weird creature with many eyes. For a film of the genre its never laughable, which is good but there are enough stuff to make three films, its a mess. A good mess.</div>

    Stylishly directed and indeed very creepy in its first third, Saints-Martys-des-Damnés somehow ends up slipping into the interminable and the annoyingly so-called clever, when in fact, it's just a total mess plotwise once it approaches its clunky finale. One may be pleased by Aubert's beautifully gothic technique, but the story is a headache, and so are the boring characters. Talk about a missed opportunity.
