It all starts when Marianne (Karin Viard) invites an old couple, the Worms (Manuela Gourary, Pierre Julien), into her apartment, a couple that claims to have lived here many years ago. After that, Marianne's kids (Camille Vatel, Alexandre Bongibault) start acting weirdly ... and then their nanny (Ludivine Sagnier) kills herself. Even Marianne's husband Jacques (Charles Berling) isn't quite himself anymore, as he has violent outbursts that often end with him hurting himself. Marianne meanwhile, when she doesn't panic or have hallucinations, has sex on the kitchen table with everyone from the handiman to the delivery boy - though she has no idea why. On top of all that, she learns that the Worms who have come for a visit at the beginning of the film were actually killled in the apartment as children (and thus couldn't have come for a visit as an old couple, right?). Eventually, she comes to the conclusion that her kids are possessed by the Worms, and it all ends in a fire that leaves noone but the children alive ...

 

This is a film with a nice set-up - that loses itself in its story soon afterwards, and the closer the plot gets to  the finale, the less you care about the on-screen goings-on as the movie has along the way become little more than a incoherent mess of isolated situations that are not really tied up in the end. Pity, because at the beginning I really liked this movie ...
