The French are artier about their schlock fright films than we are, and that isn’t necessarily a point against them — the horror genre could, by now, use a little frisson of pretension. But if you’re going to imply that a French couple being terrorized in a remote Romanian mansion adds up to something more than an arbitrary (and rather repetitive) don’t-go-in-the-basement thriller, then you’d better deliver the goods. And Them, despite some moody imagery out of the Blair Witch school, never does. The kicker, which is engineered to make us go ”Damn,” instead makes us go ”No way!”
