There is absolutely no fat on this brief, 74-minute film, but even as you get caught up in the suspense you come to realize that there isn't much meat on it, either.

It should scare up a bit of boxoffice as it does hearken back to the day when horror meant the imagination gone wild rather than severed body parts. Otherwise, the film is all too pointless.

Mostly an exercise in frustration.

The same old stuff served in an admittedly stylish manner.

Them isn't all that.
January 28, 2007
The nature of the couple's tormentors makes the action scarier than it would have been with, say, a supernatural monster, but it also represents a cheap and nasty move by Moreau and Palud.

A 20-minute calling card short extended to a tolerance-stretching 74 minutes, this is an effectively directed but ultimately pointless wind-up exercise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/6
September 22, 2007
The essentially nonexistent characterizations do little to help matters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 11, 2009
A disturbing DV-shot horror thriller.

Them is Haneke on training wheels.

September 6, 2007
A well made, if extremely hollow, technical exercise... so wafer-thin, I'm a little wary of calling it a movie. It's more like a photographed premise.
August 5, 2007
One of the least understood movie monsters is the pronoun.

August 23, 2007
That it is based on a true story does not compensate for the absence of either suspense or horror.

You can always expect a little embellishment for any horror film or thriller that claims to be based on a true story or actual events. This one, however, doesn't sell it.

August 24, 2007
The fright is crafted well enough, but the twist at the end calls for more originality than filmmakers David Moreau and Xavier Palud wield.

Lensed with skill to no particular end.
August 15, 2007
If you're going to imply that a French couple being terrorized in a remote Romanian mansion adds up to something more than an arbitrary (and rather repetitive) don't-go-in-the-basement thriller, then you'd better deliver the goods.

September 14, 2007
A nerve-wracking finale, a 30-minute chase through the house's catacombs, followed by a closing image that will chill you to the bone.

This freshman effort from the French team of David Moreau and Xavier Palud would rate an A in film school. But that doesn't mean it's worth seeing.
