Horrorfest 2007 did not make it to the Zenith City, so I had to wait for last year's offerings to come out on DVD to be able to check them out, going the one a night route this time around. One of the interesting things about going to see the original 8 films 2 die 4 in the theater was the order in which I saw the films, since that colors the veiwer's perceptions of each film. The fact that the first one I saw last year, "Reincarnation," was the best of the bunch certainly affected what I thought of Horrorfest 2006 overall (It was not until I watched the schlock horror films that Lionsgate released direct to DVD during the past couple of years that I had to admit Horrorfest really does represent the cream of the crop, albeit during a period of extended drought). Anyhow, to figure out the order of these films I went to the official Horrorfest website and arranged these eight films in the order they appeared there. That means "Borderland" takes the lead off position, and history might repeat itself because it was the film I heard mentioned most often as being the best of the second round of offerings.

"Borderland" begins with a group of Mexican drug runners going to town on a pair of Mexican police officers, one of who survives the ordeal. This is a prologue to the main part of the film, where three Texas University students travel to a Mexican border town as a last fling before graudation. Henry (Jake Muxworthy), Phil (Rider Strong), and Ed (Brian Presley) have a series of misadventures south of the border that end up crossing the paths of both the lovely Valeria (Martha Higareda) and the drug cult.

I've seen those based on true events movies such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Wolf Creek. Upon actually researching these "true events",through this wonderful thing we call the internet, I was quite relieved to find that although these events were real, they are "Hollywood-ized" for entertainment purposes. As much as I would like to say the same about Borderland, this is not the case. It was real, very real, so real that I found it difficult to sit through this movie. I remember these events all too well. I was just 14 years old when I heard about this poor kid coming up missing while partying in the bordertown of Matamoros. It hit very close to home, as Brownsville, Texas (the city right across the border from Matamoros)is a major part of my life. I spent many childhood years there, both living and visiting family. As familiar locals, we all knew back then that this story was not going to end well. However, we could have never imagined the horrible reality. We were in a state of shock as disturbing details came to light. These were details that no half-way decent human being could possibly fathom. As someone who knows this true story all too well, I must say that this filmaker did his homework. So much, that I almost turned the movie off (something this hard-core horror fan has never done) once Rider Strong was captured. If you've seen this movie as loosely based on actual events or even fictitious, then it's just another horror flick. Try watching it now and actually thinking of these characters (especially Rider Strong's) as real people that had a life and still have loved ones and it's more horrible than anything that you could imagine.

Format: DVD
In the last film in our coverage of the After Dark Horrorfest fims, we take a look at Borderland, a film based on actual events. I'm happy to say that Borderland is the best of the four films that I reviewed. On the other hand, the bar was so low with the previous entries, that this isn't saying too much. Three college buddies, Eddie, Henry, and Phil head to a small Mexican bordertown for a few days of booze and babes. Naïve Phil (Rider Strong) is plucked off the streets by members of a cult who practice human sacrifice.

Eddie and Henry have little luck with getting help from the police who themselves are terrified of the cult. Their only aid comes from a local girl, Valeria (Higareda) who helps the guys with the translations although she is new to the town herself. They finally meet a Mexico City cop whose partner was killed by the cult a year ago and has been tracking them down ever since. They plan a desperate rescue attempt to try and save Phil before the cult's charismatic leader, Santillan, can sacrifice him.

Now if the film truly is based on real events then Mexico has moved into my Top 1 spot of places that I will NEVER visit. While not a true horror in the strictest sense, the thriller's themes are horrific and it is suitably bloody. Victims of the cult have limbs chopped off and are hacked to bits with machetes. Sean Astin of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is almost unrecognizable as a fat, sadistic lackey of Santillans. It took me several scenes to realize that was him, as I had not checked out the credits before watching the film.

Borderland had the best performances of any of the four Horrorfest films that I reviewed. Damian Alcazar was outstanding as the beaten down, and crippled cop trying to avenge his partner's murder.
