Switchblade Romance Review

Image for Switchblade Romance

Two young women, Alex and Marie, head off to spend the summer with Alex's family in a remote house. When tragedy and terror strike, Marie sets off in pursuit of some very bad people...

★★★★

As relentlessly nasty as any '80s slasher, Alexandre Aja's horror goes some way to dispelling the adage that they don't make them like they used to, though a late twist lets it down. The nightmare scenario has a serial killer visiting an isolated French household: what proceeds will leave your heart in your mouth, if your stomach contents doesn't get there first.

This slasher is as good as a classic, and is only hindered by a late, unecessary twist.
