“High Lane” is a French horror movie made in 2009 about five people who go hiking/mountain climbing in the mountains of Croatia. I am not certain if the movie was indeed shot and filmed in Croatia, but the scenery was quite breath taking. I guess this is a good of time as any to say the dubbing in the film isn’t that bad, not great, but not bad. Anyway, out of the five folks involved, two of them are a guy and a gal who are in charge of the exhibition (so to speak) and are a couple. The other three are another girl and two guys, but never fear there is a good recipe for a love triangle. I will leave it at that.

This move is about eighty minutes long and the first forty minutes are of our five friends hiking and climbing. There are a couple of really intense scenes involving people almost falling, climbing cables snapping and a moment with a high walking bridge, that needs to be seen to be believed. I am not sure if the actors and actresses did their own stunts or not, but the performances were impressive.

Once we hit the forty minute mark, give or take a few minutes, the movie goes downhill extremely fast. This is mainly due to the fact that this movie turns into a lousy “Wrong Turn”-ish slasher movie. Let the record show, I am a hard core silly fan of slasher movies, when done right. The “Wrong Turn” films are sort of lame, in my humble opinion. Nevertheless, the killer looks like a young Tom Petty with rabies; this in itself is a riot. So a movie that has some potential ends up being a run of the mill crap-fest, but I suppose if one is not looking for much it might be fun. Personally, I say pass…..

It is rather brisk in this field. The leaves are descending like a tapestry of aloof dreams. The wind entices these leaves into a plume of whimsical billowing ontological paradox. Then I recall that I … more
