Macabre...ish Horror Review: Frontier(s)
Frontiers, 2007/ 108 min.
In France, a riot has broken out in Paris after a far right candidate is elected president. A gang is hoping to escape the chaos but need money and decide to use the chaos of the city to pull off a robbery. After one of them is shot, the group split up, half go to the hospital, half (Farid (Chems Dahmani) and Tom (David Saracino) to an inn/pig farm, near the border where the innkeepers say their rooms are free.
Fatally wounded Sami begs a pregnant Yasmine (Karina Testa) to keep the baby and follow the rest of the group to the inn so she’s not jailed for the robbery.
After getting directions to the inn, the innkeepers, Gilberte (Estelle Lefébure), Klaudia (Amélie Daure) and Goetz (Samuel Le Bihan), attack Tom and Farid and drive their car off a cliff. They take refuge in a mine. Which is populated by the innkeepers rejected children as well as captives, also there for breeding and to care for the children who live in the mine.
Alex and Yasmine are imprisoned and Alex is hobbled by slicing his Achilles’ tendons. Farid is chased into a boiler and cooked alive.
Meanwhile the family who runs this inn gives Yasmine to a son to ‘continue’ the family name.
This movie is in French with English subtitles. This movie is extremely bloody, gory, hopeless and brutal to watch. But people fight like hell to survive and escape. It’s a cross between Texas Chainsaw Massacre, People Under The Stairs and Wrong Turn. Total gore porn! It was a good watch if you’re in the mood, I enjoyed it! Well done!
