On A Trip To A Mexican Border Town, Three College Friendsstumble Upon A Human-Sacrifice Cult.

Customer Reviews

Exciting, good characters, lots of action, scary, I really enjoyed this movie.
Some horrific things happen in Borderland, but it's really more of a crime thriller with ties to the occult, than a pure horror film.
The same can be said for "Borderland" as a whole, a film that doesn't quite work simply because it doesn't know what it wants to be.

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.

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.

I finally got around to watching Borderland last night. I've watched most of the "After Dark Horror Fest" films and have to admit I wasn't expecting much. I'm not sure who picks and chooses what enters into their series of films, but I don't have much faith in them. However I'm very pleased with the time I spent with this one.

I'm not a huge fan of the Saw and Hostel films. Don't get me wrong, I love horror it's just the brutality of some of these films that put me off. Much like the face pounding scene from 28 Weeks Later.

This one had its brutal moments, but nothing like the woman taking a blood bath ala Elizabeth Bathory style in Hostel 2.

The acting was solid from everyone involved. I have to give kudos to Sean Astin for his portrayal of the one psycho gringo in the cult. He gave a very convincing performance and really proved he has what it takes to branch out.

The reality of the situation was what drove it home for me. During the time period those Devil Worship stories were popping up in Mexico and college students had disappeared I was living in El Paso Texas. We heard lots of stories about human vertebra neclaces and missing persons. I don't know how true any of it was, but I found the possibilities disturbing to say the least. Pretty scary for a 15 year old living 5 miles from the border. At the time I had no clue that it was closer to Corpus Christi on the complete opposite side of the state.

I highly recommend Borderland. It's not going to win any acedemy awards, but is enjoyable none the less.
