Frontière(s) Review


Apr 7, 2009

Well, I’m back with another one. Although apparently Europe is the new Japan as far as horror fads seem to go – I’m still not as hyped as most everyone else seems to be. A lot of interesting films are coming out for sure, but most don’t feel all that original or different than what the American market is currently saturated with. Dead Snow (review already written and will be posted shortly) was a bit more of a horror-geek’s movie, but even it wasn’t all that original. Nothing that wasn’t already done in the late eighties and early nineties. However, I digress and deliver you with a relatively negative review for the immensly popular Frontière(s). You guys let me know what you think and don’t forget to check out the forum! We’ve got a great group of guys on there that are really knowledgable!

The Plot: A group fo young thieves in France have just pulled off a big heist, and right in time for a series of riots to break out over Paris with the election of an unpopular conservative candidate to presidency. With the city in utter chaos, the group make a break for it and head towards the country with the intention of meeting up, splitting the cash and leading better lives. However, like you may have guessed, things don’t go as planned when the group (who have split up after the robbery due to one of their own being shot during the escape and needing to be dropped off at the hospital) stop in at a local hotel one by one. This hotel bed and breakfast isn’t your normal mom and pop set-up. Turns out the establishment is run by a psychotic family of cannibalistic nazis, and our group of youngsters will have to survive an onslaught of sheer terror over the course of the film. Who will survive the horrors? You’ll have to watch to find out!
