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.

the movie is resolutely downbeat. its dark, moist looking (fittingly given the nature of the creatures) and actually remains frightening after repeated viewings.
a short sharp shocker that will have you checking your wardrobe before going to sleep...
The pacing & slow build-up (including that late arrival of the creepy 'stars') adds to the film's power, but the outstanding aspect of THEY is the design & execution of the terrifying creatures! They are indescribable, like the creatures that one might experience in a nightmare! They are shape-changing, amorphous monsters -they are brilliant! Quite unlike other monsters, and a forerunner for creatures seen in later films (like, THE EDGE OF TOMORROW, again, hard to describe).
Although I found the ending a bit unsatisfying, don't bother with the 'alternative' ending. All it does is turn the film into one of those "it was all a dream" videos. Worse than 'unsatisfying'!
`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.
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!
