If you’re not going to see Mr. & Mrs. Smith today, go see Haute Tension instead. If you already saw Mr. & Mrs. Smith yesterday, go see Haute Tension today. If you already saw Haute Tension yesterday, go see it again today because chances are you probably hated it the first time and you’ll love it the second time (trust me).

Bottom line: make it a point to go see Haute Tension someday and then post some spoilerific comments about what you thought of the flick.

  5. High Tension was ok. I couldn’t explain all the twists for the life of me. Dubbing was horrid – I would see smiths to see jolie any day of the week.

  10. Was there a reason half was dubbed and half was subbed? That was bothering me.

  12. He makes it seems like it was only dubbed…half of the movie had subtitles.

  13. subtitles are good! better subbed than dubbed! my dvd is pretty much 100% dub.

  14. Yeah I prefer subtitles as well, dubbing makes it too distracting watching how the mouths arent in sync…but half of both is worse!

  15. here it is:


    Q: One of the things that has been most controversial in the film has been the twist. How did you settle on that twist in the end?

    Aja: In fact it was from the beginning the idea to make a survival love story, with this twist. With this psychological approach of the lead character. We shoot a lot of different things that we decided during editing not to put in the movie because it was too obvious. We were shuttling between too much indication in the film to the audience to — how to keep the audience with Marie and with Alex without giving any clues. It was a hard decision to make, but I was happy to take the decision as it was. If you stop too long to understand, it was love.

    I know some people want a logical point but don’t forget that all the story is telling from the perspective of Marie. She is telling the story as she want it in a perfect world to happen. So who was driving the car, and who was — it’s really her telling the story.

  16. and from joblo:

    Without getting too specific can you talk about some of the controversy that has surrounded the film’s ending? It seems to have sparked off quite a debate. Do you want to take this opportunity to help explain the ending for those who didn’t totally buy into it or are you content to let people figure it out themselves?

    It’s true that we’ve met a lot of people that’ve had some questions. We shot a lot of raw footage… I can’t tell too much cause I’m going to expose the ending but we decided to not go too obvious. We didn’t want to give too many clues in the film. I think we did it in a way where if you watch the film again you understand that it didn’t come from nowhere. But at the same time it was a big decision. We have to decide whether to give more clues and risk people figuring out what was going on very early on. Or we keep a veil of mystery and just do a straight-forward horror movie to the point where everything just twists.


    it seems that the korean cut had like 6 or 7 minutes chopped off. the DVD i have doesn’t look like it had 6 or 7 minutes cut. maybe it isn’t the bastard korean version that i thought it was after all. still wondering if it’s missing any extra gore though.
