Borderland * Zev Berman (2007)

Posted in horror, thriller on by .

This horror opens with a pretty explicit and gruesome torturing scene. After the opening titles it is one year later and three students want to go to Mexico to have some fun before they go to college. The film quickly develops from a thriller, to a pretty dark thriller to of course the horror elements that were announced in the cliffhanger. Not very surprising, but especially in the thriller parts, the pressing atmosphere is well done. As for the gory scenes, I still wonder why every director thinks (s)he has to put it in the films. “Borderland” has its moments, but overall it is not my kind of film.
