Sid lives with his single mum and can't afford a mobile phone. He yearns to impress Angie, the cute new girl at school, who's sort of dating cool guy Virgile but agrees to take Sid's mobile number. Desperate, he buys a cheap red phone from an eerie shop, and when the space age screen tells Sid what his new number is, there are an awful lot of "6"s in it Well made and hilarious, this comedy horror is worth picking up.

This was definitely better than expected. Even thought it's not in english, the subtitles were great. The story was enjoyable and the characters were enjoyable. My favourite part was the jock boy dancing LOL!!

A cute and quirky little French film (with subtitiles) where a young boy gets a mobile phone from the weird little store run by an Asian man. Things start happening to all of his friends after he gets this phone.

This is one of the best horror/comedies that has been made overseas and in this case France that appears to be another dead teen slasher flick but it goes beyond that for a efreshing change. Sid falls in love with a popular girl in school but she doesnt think hes cool enough so he buys himself a red phone that grants his wishes but the phone has a nasty habit of killing people around him in ingenious but brutal ways and he chosses to try to destroy the phone and save himself and his new girlfriend. The acting is top notich thou over the top to match the comic feel of the film. The direction is solid and had plenty of refs and in-jokes for horror buffs. The blood and gore is quite restrained despite the killings and they went for a comic book approach making the killing more over the top and very funny instead of simply throwing buckets of fake blood around. The film ends on an open note but a sequal would be welcomed. Def recommended to horror and black comedy fans as this film is entertaining and def worth a rental.

More comedy than horror- you are not likely to be scared by this one. A lovely little treat!
