Ils was well received for maintaining excellent tension throughout (the film only lasts for around 75 minutes, but this is not to its detriment) and for being a scary film without the use of much gore. Most of the scares are of the NothingIsScarier variety, with the intruders often just tormenting the couple ForTheEvulz. The film is also notable for having relatively little dialogue. It's not a feature which has too much attention called to it, but this is a film that people who shy away from subtitled films could manage quite well.

Clémentine (Olivia Bonamy) is a French teacher who has recently moved to Romania with her partner Lucas (Michael Cohen). One night, they hear strange noises and investigate. It turns out that [[spoiler: they are being harassed by a group of children, aged from 10 - 15, which might sound like {{Narm}} fuel, but turns out to still be as scary as the unknown intruders at the start of the film. Just because they're kids, it doesn't make them any less terrifying.]]

Not to be confused with ''Film/{{Them}}'', a 1950s creature feature, ''{{They}}'', a thriller from the early 2000s, or the 2008 horror film ''TheStrangers'', which has a similar premise. Also not to be confused with ''Manga/{{Is}}'', which is a high school romance (free of any horror).
