Candidate # 6

(May 2010)

Some good old French disturbo-horror in Franck Richard’s feature debut, La Meute, as Charlotte (Ėmilie Dequenne) drives from one end of her CDs to the other, and along the way, winds up in very deep piles of doodoo, as she encounters yet another damn good reason why France must be avoided at all costs.
To give you a fair idea of what’s in store for you here, I’ll note that Richard, in his end credits “Thank You”’s, cites Leatherface, Pinhead, Jason, Michael Myers, Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Gremlins as, “by far, the best babysitters of the world.”
You’ve been duly warned.
