This is not a bad film but its not spectacular neither. The film starts off with scenes of torture and my feeling was this film would be quite gory and scary like Saw. However, the first few scenes were probably some of the scariest in the entire film. Although the film has been compared to Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Saw, I'd say there is alot more torture and violent scenes in both. What this film does lack is a decent strong storyline. Its quite predictable and doesnt really go anywhere.
Borderland is based on true events so it is a little more believable than your average horror film, and allot scarier to think this happened! The film has some great bloody violence and shocking moments, you wont look the same way again at a person holding a machete! Worth a watch if its a genre your interested in.
