I was terrified throughout most of "High Tension", but at soon as I walked out of the theater, I realized I'd hated it more than any other movie I'd ever seen. The violence here is brutal and realistic, and worst of all, serves no purpose. I couldn't find a single redeeming quality in this film -- it seemed as though all the violence and abuse inflicted on the characters was solely for the purpose of making the audience feel sick. The twist at the end serves as nothing more than a cheap joke, where the director exploits the viewer as much as he does the characters. This movie felt like a snuff film to me. It made me feel dirty for watching it. I enjoy horror movies, but this was no horror -- it was just plain sadism.
