David Moreau and Xavier Palud’s acclaimed French thriller, “Them” (Ils in French) is coming to America — or at least, to New York and Los Angeles, says Fangoria. The film will open in NY and LA on August 17, and more cities may follow if the film does well there. The film stars Olivia Bonamy (“Bloody Mallory”) and Michael Cohen as a couple terrorized by unknown assailants in their country home. Why does this movie matter to you? Because Moreau and Palud is currently helming the American remake of the Pang Brothers’ Chinese horror “The Eye”.
The plot of “Them”:
Somewhere in Romania; Clementine is finishing off her day of teaching the local kids french, on her way home she spots an abandoned vehicle beside the road. She continues on unaware of what occurred to it’s occupants a mother and her teenage daughter the night before.
