Product Description

Elliot Goldner directs this British horror following a team of specialists from the Vatican who are drawn to a remote West Country church by reports of mysterious occurrences in the area. Though Father Crellick (Luke Neal) has video footage of items apparently being moved around inside the church by supernatural forces, Deacon (Gordon Kennedy) and Father Mark Amidon (Aidan McArdle) are sceptics by nature and want more conclusive evidence. They duly set up more cameras inside the ancient building, but are the scratching noises coming from inside the walls a source of greater concern?

5.0 out of 5 stars Found footage it might be but... 9 April 2014
By Me
Format:DVD
This is the business. At last a superior found footage film that really works well.The camera wobble is kept to a minimum and unlike Paranormal Inactivity and Devil's Due it doesn't leave you with a migraine. I found it funny and above all really frightening, please do yourself a favour and watch it with the lights out. If you fancy a traditional British Ghost story then this creeping tale of terror is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good luck with Edward Woodward... 23 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another found footage movie gets released, and seeing as this was released on DVD literally a week after its cinema release, with the cover bearing quotes like 'best British horror released in a long time', alarm bells did begin to ring.

But Mark Kermode, one of the most prolific British film critics recommended it, and if you know his work, you will know that this would make the film seem very intriguing.

It starts off like any other found footage film. Cameras are set up, and we have the believer, and the non believer, who work together as there has been a disturbance at a village church.

Gray is there to set up all the audio and cameras (after all, it's the main focus point of the narrative), and Deacon is the man who does this for a living, much like Karras in The Exorcist, but this is played by Gordon Kennedy, who you may remember from the little seen sitcom Absolutely in the early nineties.

The film then follows the rules of the found footage film down to a tee. It's all pretty familiar to begin with, we have the two bonding and drinking etc. and then it fades to the church, where sinister things are afoot at night.

As always, there is a scene where you, the viewer says ''I'd leave by that point', and then the locals start to be funny with them.

All sounds a little samey doesn't it?

But then it just goes down the straight horror route, and believe me, the final ten minutes are almost unbearable to watch, not because its scary, the film isn't necessarily scary at all, it's just very tense, and the word despair comes into mind.

The two leads are wonderful, one annoying, and the other calm, to begin with. And then the tables turn, Deacon begins to doubt, and Gray the opposite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tunnel Vision 20 July 2014
Format:DVD
The premise has been blanketed endless times in films such as Red Lights, Paranormal Activity and The Awakening, however here the found footage component adds an interesting spin. In this case, they’re using cameras to document every aspect of their findings. Those of you who can’t stand the erratic camera work that so often features in this genre can rest easy; most of the camera work is either dormant shots through security cameras, or mounted to the teams head aka Aliens-style. It has likable characters and comical moments and a feeling of dread but also that some kind of epiphany might befall one of the characters as it floats the idea of religion and curiosity of the unknown around.
While countless are praying forall these found-footage films to end, The Borderlands showcases that you don’t have to be as bland and obvious as some within the genre. By bonding the age-old paranormal investigation plot with new-age technology it creates a sinister and intriguing horror within a genre i personally can feel frequently let down with. It also never makes me want to go through a tunnel again either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very encouraging! 26 April 2014
Format:DVD
To quote another reviewer: 'It will seriously creep you out, if you have an IQ over 100.' Quite agree - I lost patience with people who insisted the Blair Witch Project wasn't scary. How could it not be a scary film? If you don't find this film scary you are either unable to grasp what it is doing, not concentrating, or simply don't like horror films in general. For reviewers to say they switched it off after 30 minutes because it was boring is just crazy.

Anyway. . . I found this to be an effectively creepy and original horror. I thought the dialogue was good, genuinely funny in places and well-delivered. Gordon Kennedy in particular is very good. Considering they obviously didn't have a big budget I think they were especially clever in the way they made this. The ending (no spoilers). . . Wow. Honestly don't know what to say about that (in a good way). Chilling. Like The Blair Witch Project the ending only disappointed because it meant there was no more film. It could have gone on much longer as far as I'm concerned.

Also, what a fascinating new way to cook lamb. . .

I hope the filmmakers stick to this genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars XXXCELLENT LOW BUDGET INDIE BRIT FLICK 9 April 2014
Format:DVD
Some excellent camera work, editing, and acting, especially the footage filmed in the Mysterious pagan tunnels / secret passages, my only criticism is i think at times some of the scenes dragged at the start (even if they were possibly to make the setting/story seem more realistic) and would be better with editing some out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable found-footage thriller 30 April 2014
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As soon as I found out that I had paid good money for yet another so-called 'thriller' using found-footage, my initial reaction was: 'oh no, not again'. However, 'The Borderlands' is in a higher class to the others I've seen.

Long-term Ben Wheatley collaborator Robin Hill is hilarious as Gray, a non believing man, hired only to deal with the recording equipment, who teams up with Deacon, Gordon Kennedy's investigator character, who is a believer, but also has a drink problem, and from there a great double act is formed. The pair are sent by the Vatican to check out a claim by a local priest of a possession taking place in an old village church, via a very fuzzy video where we see crosses and candles moving fleetingly across a table. The priest himself is a rather strange man, whose actions seem to defy logic.

The team originally doubt the so called paranormal activity, until events start to take a darker turn, and it seems that something rather sinister has been awakened. Despite a very witty script, there are some genuinely eerie moments, but nothing in it is what I would personally consider to be particularly heart pounding scary, despite several reviews.

For such a small budget, I think that 'The Borderlands' is something quite good, and has a good balance of comedy and thrills. I liked it, I laughed a lot, and would happily watch it again.
