Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The first time I watched "Frontiers", going in with these huge expectations, I was not only amazed (and somewhat appalled) at what I was watching, but how the film had surpassed the hype. I was genuinely shocked at what was unfolding before me. "Frontiers" is horrendous, but in a truly positive sense. It's hateful, and brutal, and violent, and anti-human. But I loved it! I was so happy I had bought the DVD from Amazon instead of renting it.

Last night I re-watched it with three of my friends, none of which had heard of the movie and who barely knew the plot other than what I vaguely explained while the commericials were rolling. At the end one of my friends was crying, and she couldn't even tell me why. Another said he didn't feel like doing anything, that he was emotionally-drained and felt like going to bed, while the last one said she felt "weird" and for the rest of the night remained silent. Without exaggeration... that's how powerful and gritty this film is.

Some bash it for being derivative of things such as "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Hills Have Eyes" and even "House of 1000 Corpses", and while there are parallels and I cannot fault them for saying so, the movie does what it does very well (better than those three installments) and I think it was more of a homage to those other quality horrors.

It's fair to say when watching a movie with such a shock factor involved, things like acting and direction fall leeway; taking up the passenger seat and letting the violence lead. Such is not the case in "Frontiers". The acting on all levels is great, even stupendous in a few cases -- each character adding his or her own little bit to the story and cranking up the believability.

By the time "Frontier(s)" was over my teeth really hurt. That was because I kept clenching them during the moments in this French horror film (the correct spelling of which would be "Frontière(s)"). This 2007 film is being promoted as the ninth of the 8 films 2 die 4 for last year's After Dark Horrorfest, because when it earned an NC-17 rating in the States it had to be pulled from the lineup. So it has the whole vibe of being too much horror for Horrorfest, which means the expectations are pretty high when you sit down to watch this one. On the other hand, the second crop of Horrorfest films were rather disappointing so you figure this one has to be an improvement, and the good news is that it certainly delivers. I am not the sort to close my eyes while watching the gory parts of movies (although I did close one of them in sympathetic reaction to the opening game of "Saw II"), which is why I went the clenched teeth part. A bad case of the measles as a child took out some of the calcium in my permanent teeth, so I am surprised some of them did not crack.

France is in the throes of some political upheaval having to do with the election of a hard line government, and while a century ago this might have sent young people to the barricades, in these trouble times they turn to crime. With the cops on their trail they decide to hole up in this filthy little bed and breakfast. This, of course, turns out to be a really bad mistake, and while the victims are not deserving of our sympathy on the basis of their characters, they are the hope of the future compared to their tormentors. There is really nothing more to say in laying out the plot, because you should just enjoy the ride, if you sense of the word "enjoy" encompasses what happens in this film.

The French have a great reputation for making super horror films that are uncensored, full of non-gratuitous gore, and a 'pull you in' storyline. This movie does not stop with the action from about 15 minutes in, until the end. This movie is much in the way of a typical horror-type storyline, but the gore and brutality and actual realism set this movie apart from many north american made films. Highly recommend this movie, but it still does not compare to the greatest two french horror films - Martyrs and Inside (L'Interior).
