Them (French: ils) is a 2006 French-Romanian horror film directed by David Moreau and Xavier Palud. According to a title card at the beginning of the film it is "based on real events." Olivia Bonamy plays Clementine, a young teacher, who has recently moved from France to a remote but idyllic country house near Bucharest, Romania with her lover Lucas played by Michaël Cohen. The film opens with a mother (Adriana Mocca) and daughter (Maria Roman) driving along a deserted country road at night. During an argument the mother crashes their vehicle. She checks the engine and after a period of silence, the daughter calls to her and gets out. Her mother has disappeared. She calls out but her call is repeated from the surrounding woods by a whispery voice. Petrified, she jumps back into the vehicle. Suddenly, noises come from the woods around her and mud is thrown against the windows. The young girl desperately attempts to contact the police using a mobile phone but is strangled to death from behind.
