THEM/ILS - better than THE HITCHER, still not brilliant

French couple living in isolated cottage awoken by spooky things that go bump in the night. Film-makers sustain charmingly old-school sinister atmosphere through deft camera-work and sound design. This almost, but not quite, makes up for the lack of plot, character development, genuine suprise ending and standard-issue run-time.

THEM (ILS) was released in France, Belgium, Turkey, Spain, Sweden and Greece in 2006. It is currently on release in Romania and the UK and opens in Finland on February 9th.
