While not a perfect horror film, I did like the sincere tone to High Tension (Haute Tension). I thought the look was beautiful and unique. The image quality is uniformly grainy, but with very saturated colors and high contrast. I was curious how this was acheived. Just guessing here, I get the feeling the film may have been shot in one of two ways: 1: Slow negative stock(200asa?) pushed two stops, or 2: E-6 Reversal (5285) 100D pushed two stops. Does anyone know anything about this film?

I'm guessing without any attention paid to the story.
...sorry, had to! =)
