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.Read more ›
"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.Read more ›
