First, you cannot fix your subtitles so that they appear correctly on my television. Now, I do not get the choice to watch with subtitles or dubbed. I hate dubbed movies. It reminds me of those crazy dubbed Asian game shows they used to show on Spike. I want my subtitles, and I want them to be visible.
The Scream Queen
High Lane (aka Vertige) is a French movie about some 20-somethings hiking in Croatia. They choose a trail that is currently closed, thinking it will be more of an exciting challenge. However, their ringleader, Fred, neglects to tell the less-experienced members of the group that there is only one way in and out. They become trapped, and hunted by an unknown group/person/entity.
High Lane is very The Descent meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Wrong Turn. So, you know, hearing banjos en Francais in the middle of a Croatian hiking trip. The action scenes were super exciting and very well filmed. I personally have never gone rock climbing, but this movie makes me want to never attempt it. There's beautiful ladies, sort-of hot guys, but no nudity to be found.
I really liked this movie, from the action to the acting to the super-fun blood and gore. Dubbed or not, this is definitely a French film to check out. They get it right nearly every time, don't they? ;)
