During the night, Clémentine is awakened by weird noises outside the old house and Lucas sees their car being stolen. Then the lights in the house turn off, the phone line is dead and they see that their property gate has been trespassed and they are surrounded by weird persons with lights. The two hide in the cellar and try to escape to ask for help during this dreadful night of pure terror.

Very scary, more crime drama than horror though?

To be honest, even though "Them" was apparently based upon a real-life incident that occured back in 2002, I found its story (which was only a mere 77 minutes in length) to be too overwhelmingly bleak and inescapably hopeless to be considered anything close to that of enjoyable entertainment..... Set near Bucharest, Romania, a 30-something couple (Clem and Lucas) are relentlessly terrorized one night at their isolated country home by a group of mysterious, hooded intruders..... I will not spoil this film by revealing to you what became of Clem and Lucas, or who these intruders turned out to be, but I will say that the horrific panic and nerve-racking events that lead to the chilling conclusion of this story were almost too unbearable of an ordeal to have to endure..... *Please note* - This was a French production with English subtitles.

Very creepy film. Even though I was spoiled on some aspects of the plot when I first heard about this movie, I still found the building sense of fear highly effective. Great setting, and it's so short that they really don't waste a moment on anything extraneous (original review July 2011). Edit: in response to Bubba_Louie's review, there is no such incident. It's just that everything is considered scarier if presented as based on real-life events. I thought that falsehood was actually the weakest aspect of the whole thing. "Enjoy" (or shudder through) the chilling atmosphere for its own sake, as a very effectively told story.
