Frontier(s) is very much like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
on November 1, 2016
I've never been really into the torture porn stuff but every genre has its exceptions. This has a little bit of story to act as a catalyst for the gore so it was tolerable, but it's worth mentioning that Tobe Hooper wrote that story in the early 70s. Not that it detracts from the movie being entertaining, but (as lots of people have pointed out), Frontier(s) is very much like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It isn't a movie that references it, or pays homage to it, it just kinda copies most of the ideas and puts them into another setting. It wasn't the first, or last, film to do that, and if you're curious what all the hype about the movie was, there's no reason not to check it out and enjoy it. I don't see myself re-watching the movie anytime soon or raving about it to friends, but I'm not bothered that i paid the few dollars to cross it off of the list.
