Two Teens Kidnapped and Held in Woods Movie

I saw this movie on Showcase Canada late at night around 2002 or 2003. It wasn’t a new movie but they usually played European Arthouse flicks late at night. It wasn’t a TV movie, that’s for sure. The movie was in color, looked like it might have been made in the late 80s or 90s. I was changing channels a lot but I kept coming back to it, so I don’t know the whole plot. In fact, the first scene I remember of this movie was a bathroom scene where two dudes were fighting. The bathroom looked more like a locker-room shower than a traditional stall-based bathroom. As in, there were open shower faucets above and linoleum tiles below. Again, I was changing channels a lot so this scene may have been from the end of a different movie.


The next two scenes I remember are definitely from the same movie:

When I came back to the movie after switching channels, it seemed like a boy and girl were kidnapped by a crazy old guy and were forced to live under his floorboards. I think there were a couple scenes where he brought the girl up from the floorboard hiding place to cook for him or something? The dude was chained below I believe.

There was also a scene at the end were the two teens were running away from the old man, naked, and jumped in a pond within the forest. I believe the old man was killed by them eventually.

I don’t think this was an English language film, if that helps. The forest was fairly grassy/woodlandy. Like there was a lot of green, it was probably spring/summer. The cabin where the two teens were held was very dilapitated…and the old man himself had jerky body-language. Imagine Rutger Hauer in The Hitcher, but even more skeevy in terms of appearence.

  1. Could it be “Les Amants Criminels”? French film, creepy, two teens getting locked up by an old dude in a cabin is the bulk of the movie. The girl convinces her boyfriend to kill a fellow classmate, so the other part could be a flashback to that.
