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'm a true crime aficionado, especially when it comes to sick cults. Since I am very spiritual, I think it's just probably natural for me to be drawn to this type of madness, and seething with anger and fascination at the same time. I have heard about the true story of Adolfo Costanzo and his blood-thirsty followers many, many times. This case fascinates me just as much as Charles Manson's case, "Helter Skelter"--if not MORE. The movie is obviously not a documentary of what truly went down in Brownsville/Matamoros, but I am very happy I found this movie anyway, since I'm also a horror movie junkie anyway, LOL.

The acting is really, really good. The blood-curdling screams coming from the victims really tugged at me. Also, living in Texas, and having visited a bordertown myself, I know how it feels to be totally out of your element. I was with my parents at the time, and by God, Mexico is a 'banned' country in my book. And yes, I was almost killed there. Not dissected like these poor souls were, but almost ran over by a speeding car. I was young then, but I still had a feeling of being a target. The car just sped on and on, and didn't even slow down as it came close to me. They just don't giva rat's ass down there.

So, yeah. Lemme' see.... The Borderland... The people come and they go, and they unforgive and forget. It's like it's own realm or something, a world where people have no conscience whatsoever. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to the border.

I'm not a big fan of the Horrorfest films, even though I wish I was. I saw a lot of 2006's (I only liked `The Hamiltons' of what I saw... and it was just 'ok') and I think Borderland is the only one I've watched for the year 2007. Borderland is definitely the best of all the Horrorfest that I've seen so far. Now don't go hitting that 'BUY' button just yet...hear me out first.

Borderland is 'inspired' on a true event that happened down in Mexico. Basically a drug bust happened, cops found human remains in cauldrons and mass graves. The drug guys said human sacrifices to their God (or whatever it was) made them invisible (I'm guessing to make it easier to smuggle drugs). So saying that, I'm sure you can tell where this movie is going, but I'll continue.

So we got 3 teenage boys that are about to head to college. Before they do, they want to head to Mexico for a few days and party and find some hookers. In doing so, they come across a whore house with a pretty bartendress and one of our boys falls for her. Another one actually falls for a hooker, which has a kid, which his friend paid 80 bucks for him to sleep with. Now you are probably thinking, "OH MAN THEY ARE HARLOTS! They are evil and MAKING these guys fall in love with them by magic or voooodoooo" Nope, your wrong. They are just idiots. So later on, they decide to hang out at a Fair with the bartendress and her cousin, do some shrooms and weed, and go for some rides. After awhile, our boy who fell in love with the actual hooker wins her a stuff animal and decides to leave the group and go back to the whore house and give it to her. They let him go (alone) and on the way there, he gets picked up by some bad dudes, and doesn't make it to see his new love.

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.
