Sheitan/Slaughter Night/Carved: The Slit-Mouthed Woman

Includes:Sheitan (2006) Slaughter Night (2006) Carved (2007) Sheitan Four friends looking for a good time are lured into a strange and dangerous netherworld in this wildly offbeat horror film from France. It's Christmas Eve, and twentysomethings Bart (Olivier Barthelemy), Ladj (Ladj Ly), Thai (Nico Le Phat Tan), and Yasmine (Leila Bekhti) are bored and looking for fun. They end up at a rowdy dance club where, after Bart gets into a fight, they meet Eve (Roxane Mesquida), a sexy girl who seems to take a liking to the three guys. Eve invites the foursome to come back to her place in the country; the guys are more than game, and Yasmine tags along for the ride. Eve's house is a ramshackle mansion overflowing with broken plastic dolls and looked after by Joseph (Vincent Cassel), a cheerful but subnormal handyman whose pregnant wife spends most of her time upstairs. Before long, some of Eve's friends from town come by, and while the women are sexually accommodating, Yasmine soon gets the feeling something is wrong, and in time the guys reach the same conclusion. Joseph's topics of conversation become downright creepy as he talks in great detail about incest and Satanism with his guests, and Christmas Day devolves into an orgy of violence and perversity. Sheitan received its North American premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Slaughter Night A teenage girl attempting to gather the materials for a book her father had been writing at the time of his death becomes trapped in an abandoned mine and forced to do battle with the malevolent entity on which the tome was based in director Frank van Geloven's demonic slasher flick. Kristel (Victoria Koblenko) was arguing with her father during a late night drive when tragedy struck. Now saddled with the knowledge that her late father was one the verge of finishing a book about an early-19th Century child killer who had made a deal with the devil in exchange for the ability to move in and out of hell, Kristel and a group of friends travel to the mine shaft where her father had been doing research in order to retrieve his personal belongings. After arriving at the site and gathering her father's materials, Kristel and company are persuaded to venture 200 feet underground in order to take a guided tour of the mine. During the tour, it's revealed that during the time that the mine was in operation condemned convicts were offered the opportunity to avoid the hangman's noose by testing the shaft for deadly methane gas; if the criminal survived the excursion they were subsequently granted complete immunity for their crimes. The maniac behind those horrific child murderers had taken such a gamble after being given that option, and by all accounts perished in the subsequent explosion. When the tour is over and the elevator to the surface fails, the group playfully attempts to kill some time by communicating with the dead via the ouija board that belonged to Kristel's father. Unfortunately for all involved, the spiritualistic apparatus opens a portal through which the demonic spirit of the child killer passes, immediately possessing one of the teens and driving her on a murderous rampage. Now, as the rest of the trapped tourists attempt to make the way through the underground maze and to the perceived safety of the surface, a supernatural killer leaps from body to body in a bloody attempt to locate a mysterious treasure while collecting as many severed heads as possible. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Carved Japanese director Koji Shiraishi helms the direct-to-video supernatural horror picture Carved.
