Descripción del producto
Llevados por el ansia de aventura y la euforia de verse reunidos, un grupo de amigos emprende la escalada de una alta montaña. A Chloé, Guillaume, Fred, Karine y Loïc, les crea problemas no sólo el vértigo que les produce la altura de las cimas, sino también sus sentimientos soterrados. Por si fuera poco, se dan cuenta con espanto de que ni siquiera están solos. A partir de ese momento, la expedición se convierte en una auténtica pesadilla.

It does for Acrophobia what The Descent did for Claustrophobia. It takes that fear and runs with it making the film interesting and scary before we are ever introduced to the unforeseen terror in the form of a crazed disfigured mountain freak.
When we as a viewer go into the psycho's Lair it is very poorly lit and hard to make out some of the things that are happening,I was able to see enough to figure out what was up but I wanted to see more.What I could make out were hanging lamps made out of human heads,lots of body parts and somewhere you wouldn't want to visit. The effects were well done and not over the top but enough to satisfy us Slasher lovers appetite for carnage.
Just as in the Descent in the beginning of their adventure they show a group photo being taken and at the end of the film they show the same photo of everyone, arms around each others shoulders looking carefree and happy.That to me was a direct rip off,this is in no way a spoiler.
There is some jealous boyfriend and Ex boyfriend drama that weaves it's way into the plot and I found it to be useful in creating more tension and extreme circumstances.
There is no explanation given for the origin of the villain But instead focus on flashbacks of an experience that happened to one of the main characters "Fanny Valette" who is a nurse .I suppose it was suppose to be the big "OH I GET IT" moment" when all is revealed, but it was much ado about little, in my opinion.There are some very good fight for survival scenes and power struggles .I really wanted to love this movie because crazed wilderness freaks are one of my favorite Slasher sub genres,ala,Wrong Turn,The Hills Have eyes,Just Before Dawn etc.I give it 3 and 1/2 stars..
I remember reading a Stephen King novel that for the first 90% wasn't a supernatural book, it was simply a woman escaping a very violent husband who was a cop with connections, then when the supernatural element kicked in I thought it diminished what had been one of the greatest books I'd read up to then. This film sort of does that too, not that the stuff in the second half isn't worth watching, it is. It's just you've seen that countless times before.
The scenery is brilliant in this one. You experience the climb at times as if you're hanging off the cliffs. The female characters aren't bad scenery either (Maud Wyler & Fanny Valette), we've got your typical horror thing of one wearing a low cut white tight shirt the entire time too. I don't know if these actors are climbers in real life, but they do a good portraying that they are. The pathetic guy too (Loïc) is excellently portrayed. Your supposed to despise him and the actor Johan Libéreau does a fantastic job making you feel that way towards Loïc. The whole time your just thinking, this guy better die before the film is over.
The ending though is a bit of letdown, one being you can see it coming. Then two like American made for TV movies do, this French film decides to sum up the aftermath with text boxes, which ultimately raise more questions than are answered. But High Lane is still one of the most exciting subtitled films I've seen in a long time. Four and a half stars easy.
The climbers see that the pass is closed but go anyway, a classic beginning to a nature horror movie where nature enthusiasts bite off more than they can chew. It seems like it will be easy going since this mountain is equipped for safe climbing complete with ladder rungs wedged deep into the mountain and steel safety cords to hook onto. Everyone is wearing safety harnesses with double lanyard hooks so this should be simple, right?
The first setback besides the pass being closed is that Loïc clearly has a fear of heights combined with vertigo that he is attempting to hide from the group to keep his pride intact in front of his girlfriend, Chloé's ex, Guilliaume who is still in love with her. The action begins fast and one accident after another occurs until it becomes clear these are not just accidents and someone is out to get these hikers.
I already have a pretty established fear of heights so watching even the "fun" portions of their trip was enough to tie my stomach in knots. The movie gets more intense as every worse case scenario begins to enfold on them. The tension between the ex-boyfriend and the new boyfriend is heated up by the stress of trying to find a way out despite losing group members. It is a shorter film, only one hour and twenty minutes so there is no wasted screen time dwelling on talking about feelings or back story when the situation is so much more dire than that. This is a terrifying movie that tensed me up considerably throughout!!
So, five friends decide to do some rock climbing and aerial sightseeing in the Croatian mountains. Actually, it's two couples plus a former boyfriend of one of the girls (who somehow managed to invite himself along for the trip). The presence of her ex Guillaume doesn't seem to bother Chloe (Fanny Valette) too much, but current boyfriend Loic clearly isn't happy about it at all. Heck, Chloe's the only reason he's here to risk his life climbing mountains to begin with, and now this ex-boyfriend shows up and puts him to shame in every way possible (heck, Loic even makes me look like a manly man). Now, Fred and Karine (Maud Wyler) are all about the adventure. Given the fact that they are French, they are incredibly brave. While most people with half a brain would turn back when they see that the trail is closed, Fred talks everyone into climbing a sheer rock face and doing what they came to do. It turns out that the trail was closed for a reason, so the group has quite an adventure on their hands. Prepare for a great mix of beautiful scenery (but it's not Croatian, as the movie was filmed in the French Alps) and harrowing action shots that will have my fellow acrophobics squirming in their seats. If High Lane had just stuck to this nothing-but-a-rope-between-you-and-a-big-sharp-rock-thousands-of-feet-below premise, it could well have been an incredibly intense and effective thriller - unfortunately, the story morphs completely at the mid-way point into just another Wrong Turn copy-cat, leaving most of the chills and thrills behind. Yes, the special effects and the gore are well-done, but the villain is bland and the action far too generic. The only suspense or surprise comes when a character does something really stupid or downright vindictive. I liked the ending, though, as it did at least show a tiny bit of originality.
The first half of High Lane is A-level work, but the second half deserves several comments in red ink. It's unfortunate because everything (except the dubbing) was going so well. There is also the matter of Chloe's flashbacks to a traumatic event in her life, which only works to a certain degree and could (perhaps should) have been removed from the plot, but I can live with that. High Lane isn't all it could have been, but it's still an impressive and sometimes quite thrilling horror offering from director Abel Ferry. I hear that Fanny Valette is a real up-and-coming actress in Europe, as well.
