Despite all its primal brutality, Frontier(s) is a deep, intelligent and very political movie.

DVD Review

As a political allegory, it has no substance. As a genre piece, it is derivative, but it takes from the best and brings it together reasonably well.

Frontier(s) still finds a way to mine the past while staying rooted in the present. It may seem recognizable, but it's a well made and effective awareness

Nasty, brutish but--pace Thomas Hobbes--insufficiently short gorefest...nothing more than an exercise in sadism.

Though neither subtle nor particularly original, Gens' spin on the meat-movie classic has both nightmarish energy to spare.

The real surprise of Frontier(s) is that this creepy, bloody contemporary gross-out also has some ideas, visual and otherwise, wedged among its sanguineous drips.

A relentlessly ugly and derivative reworking of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

It's as relentless as it is hateful, hammily directed and derivative of the dreariest slop in contemporary American horror cinema.

has neither the weight nor the ingenuity to make a solid impression past its unorthodox dispatching techniques.

Perhaps it's because I see so many by-the-numbers horror movies but when a director is willing to go as far off the rails as Gens tries to go in Frontier(s), it goes a long way with me.

Explicit in Frontier(s) is its maker's belief that nothing should be left to the imagination.

a bludgeoning, bloody trawl through the cliches of survival horror, with a strong contemporary political subtext - and as with any good barbecue, there is plenty of red sauce, and absolutely nothing has been left underdone.

...an entertaining horror flick that benefits from the inclusion of several gleefully over-the-top kill sequences.

Can a movie be an adrenalin-fueled, blood-gushing thrill ride and still be as boring as dirt? Apparently.

A patently over-the-top piece of gore-drenched survival horror. Very familiar but very fun.
