Violent, bloody, unpleasant but effectively creepy French
slasher movie with a maniac in a yellow jumpsuit murdering his way through the countryside in pursuit of a pair of teenage girls.
It's not particularly original until a plot twist develops
which doesn't actually make too much sense, but is still a more entertaining horror movie than the majority of dross spewed out by Hollywood over the same decade.
