Product Description

Julia (Laura Regan) and Billy (Jon Abrahams) have been friends since childhood, but his recollections of those days are totally different from hers. He seems to be suffering from delusions that THEY are near. However, some of Billy's college friends (Ethan Embry and Dagmara Dominczyk) think that his fears could be only too real and try to find answers to the inexplicable things that begin to happen. Gradually, Julia has to believe that Billy is telling the truth.

This film has everything you could want from a horror film: a cute cast (especially the lead), lots of errant machinery, dodgy flashlights, lightning, power failures, movement in the shadows, and glimpsed monsters, oh, and a very cute lead. There's even a full moon (well, nearly full). It doesn't break any new ground but it does succeed in achieving an effective sense of mounting dread. The performances from the mostly unknown (and did I mention cute?) cast are good, and the filming and effects are polished; particularly the monsters, which move in a wonderfully creepy way. It even manages a neat and satisfying ending. Although in the grand scheme of all things cinematic this film only warrants three stars in the world of horror flicks it easily deserves four.

Read the reviews before purchasing.Because they varied, thought we would give it a go----WISH WE HADNT BOTHERED.SERIOUSLY. Thought it was simply ,well, awful.Fell asleep halfway through,so did have another look---just as bad.Sorry,this is not really our cup of tea at all.It does not fall into the catagory of HORROR,not to us anyway.The' lead ' may be cute[as someone wrote[heart ruling head,i believe!!],but that does not make a good film.We also looked at the' alternative ending'---better ,we thought than the original one.A good job we all vary in what we like--but we can sleep very soundly in the same room as OUR closet--no problem at all!!!Cant recommend,just cant.

Hmm, it seems this film suffers more than it gains from being associated with Wes Craven (though I've never rated him that highly, personally - so I approached They with a relatively open mind).
And it's ok. It has some good ideas, and a lot that is rather average. It's like an episode of the Twilight Zone, or in more modern terms Heroes, in that respect. Some scenes are well done, the swimming pool sequence is an homage to the scene in Cat People (the black and white original) and it rattles along at a reasonable pace with a few twists and sudden scares. At under 85 minutes They doesn't outstay its welcome either.
Wes Craven was probably happy to lend his name to it on account of these factors, and because he has always it seems been interested in exploring the collision between reality and unreality in his own films (albeit in a popular psychology sort of way, for my money). That aspect of the film works well enough, though the alternate ending makes it clear that the film makers were a little unsure themselves about where they were going with it.
It's no classic, but an entertaining enough yarn, with a few effective set pieces. I think it would probably be a good introduction to more thoughtful western horror for young teenagers, and was watching it thinking that my son (currently nine) would enjoy it in a few years, before he's ready for more grown-up and disturbing fare.
Oh, Laura Regan is so similar-lookin to Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby that it's probably the spookiest thing about the film!

After the smash hit (American version) The Ring in 2001, many other horror films tried to copy its formula. Some succeeded (like the US version of The Grudge), but most fell into the forgotten abyss of B-movie horror.

`They' comes somewhere between the two. It's not as good as either The Ring or The Grudge, but it's not as terrible as some of its fellow genre movies. It tells the story of a woman who experienced `night terrors' as a child. Now grown up, strange things start to happen which indicate that the night terrors are coming back again.

The good: it's quite short. If you really hate it, you won't feel like you've wasted too much of your life on it. Also, the `night terrors' are quite creepy, both in the weird `trilling' sounds they make, plus what you do get to see of them (which isn't that much).

The bad: not much of a budget. No recognisable stars and some may feel that you don't really get to see enough of the `night terrors' to work out what they actually look like. Also, I've seen a lot of online criticism of the main actress - it ranges from her looks (apparently she has a `long neck' and even an `adams apple' to her acting ability. Okay, she was never going to win an Oscar for her performance, but I didn't think she was any worse than any other `scream queen' in a similar type of film.

If you fancy another `Ring-esque' type of film, you might like to give this one a go.

CONTAINS SPOILERS.

It starts with childhood friends re-united by the loners paranoia for the night terrors they shared as a child. With our man returning to the fold we are given a few promising leads with ghostly black spot scar he can never sate the itch and then a blast of table top suicide (though this is hollywood horror so they cut away).

Our female lead following her buddies end now too feels the symptoms of the night terrors and so the spiral continues.

This is not dark enough for paranoid monster flick and with its four man death toll is tame for a horror slasher.

The terror beasts themselves look a bit like If pitch black made fruit bats and the ending with a maybe she's crazy after all but then letting fruit bats take her was no real twist and again America fail at horror.

.....

Facts found since I saw this film.

Brendan Hood's script was near non existent in the final screening suffering countless re-writes. Originally the script was pitched as a science fiction where the hidden race are farming our world for body parts and spares, which to my mind sounds an infinitely better film.
