Critic Reviews of "High Tension"Ebert & RoeperJune 13, 2005
An extremely well-made, very grisly and ultimately dishonest slasher film that's too clever for its own good.Washington PostJune 10, 2005
Director Alexandre Aja, who wrote this with Gregory Levasseur, doesn't have a gift for horror suspense so much as a compleat geek knowledge of all the superior scare flicks that have preceded High Tension.Washington PostJune 10, 2005
You have to give it to the filmmakers for their contempt of convention: no foreplay, no teasing, no steady buildup of dread, just a knock on the door and the slaughterer is there.Seattle TimesJune 10, 2005
A lame exercise, delivering shameless thrills at the expense of logic and genuine suspense.San Francisco ChronicleJune 10, 2005
Very bloody, sometimes difficult to watch and sometimes just tiresome.Orlando SentinelJune 10, 2005
This is sick. And sickening.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsNovember 04, 2015
Its conclusion can be viewed as a major disappointment.ColeSmithey.comJuly 02, 2009
Gory European gothic horror doesn't come any grittier and weirder than it does when a couple of would-be lesbian college girlfriends retreat to a weekend at the secluded farmhouse of one of their parents to study for their final exams.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
Disturbing, demented, gory and one of the best horror films I've seen in a while...ESplatterJune 18, 2008
The last three fourths of this film are basically like the last five minutes of Halloween -- total fear and total suspense.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 17, 2007
Haute Tension is like a French art-house essay on slasher-movie cliches, and as such is good nasty fun.rec.arts.movies.reviewsJuly 27, 2007
A cinematically sound but sub-par horror flick readied for the American mass market by the addition of English credits and some truly atrocious dubbing.
