Humains is a French horror film directed from Pierre-Olivier Thévenin and Jacques-Olivier Molon. The film stars Sara Forestier, Dominique Pinon and Philippe Nahon.[2]

Plot[edit]

A French research team travels to the Swiss Alps to investigate a discovery. After a car accident, the group becomes lost in the mountains with a group of tourists and struggle to survive while being hunted by mysterious figures.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The film was shot in late 2008 in Luxembourg, Paris and the Swiss Alps under the working title of "Les Disparus de Lötschental".[3] Yolande Moreau was originally cast in the lead role as the character Charlotte,[4] but she left the project. As a result, the character's role was changed and became Sara Forestier's character, Nadia.[5]

Release[edit]

The film premiered on 6 February 2009 as part of the European Film Market in Germany and was part of the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival on 11 April 2009.[6] The French cinema release was on 22 April 2009.[7]

Reception[edit]

The film grossed only $236,617 in its opening week in France[8][9] and was universally panned by critics.[10][11] It is the only film to be reviewed on nanarland.com in its first week.[12]

Soundtrack[edit]

The score was composed by Luxembourg cinema composer Gast Waltzing.[13]
