Brilliant movie for fans of sinister horror,
This review is from: The Borderlands [DVD] (DVD)
I highly recommend this film. I watched it because I was impressed by The Devil's Business, and noticed that The Borderlands is from the same makers. Yes, this is a hand-held-camera / found-footage movie, which I know some fans of the horror genre feel has been done too much, but after seeing this, I definitely feel this is worth a watch and is a great addition to the field. The story centres around an ancient church, which a group of men investigate in order to try to uncover whether it is being haunted by sinister forces.
What I love about this film- and The Devil's Business- is the way the dialogue is constructed in the script. Characters feel so authentic and genuine that you feel you could watch their conversations on screen for hours and not get bored. There is just SOMETHING about the characters dialogue. Real, gritty, honest delivery. 10 out of 10 for that alone.
I gave this film 4 out of 5 because I felt it was strong enough to warrant such a rating.
