ReviewSource Cinematical
Review Three young Americans travel to a border town just inside Mexico and get tangled up with a vicious cult of Satan worshipers. Sounds a lot like Eli Roth's Hostel or John Stockwell's (ugh) Turistas, doesn't it? That's what I thought at first, but once I realized that Zev Berman's Borderland was based on actual (and truly horrific) events from 1989, I had a whole new perspective on the project. (That fact that Mr. Berman was actually in Mexico went these horrible events went down, and was even questioned by the Mexican authorities, adds a whole new layer of creepiness to the flick.) Borderland is a grim, gruesome and impressively well-mounted piece of genre filmmaking, and one that's a whole lot more unsettling when you realize it was based on an actual massacre...The horror fans will most likely dig Borderland, and it'll probably send a few viewers home itching to "wiki" the actual truth of the story. So while the flick offers a fairly familiar tale, it does so in admirably gritty fashion. Berman balances the weight of the actual events with the desire to mount a simply effective horror story, and I think he pulls it off quite well. Boiled down to the basics: If you liked Hostel, I suspect you'll dig this one -- and if you actually paid money to see Turistas, then I definitely think you'll be a lot more satisfied with Borderland.
