Hardly a trailblazer.
Can a movie be an adrenalin-fueled, blood-gushing thrill ride and still be as boring as dirt? Apparently.
| Original Score: 1/4
has neither the weight nor the ingenuity to make a solid impression past its unorthodox dispatching techniques.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Explicit in Frontier(s) is its maker's belief that nothing should be left to the imagination.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
It's as relentless as it is hateful, hammily directed and derivative of the dreariest slop in contemporary American horror cinema.
A relentlessly ugly and derivative reworking of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
| Original Score: C
Nasty, brutish but--pace Thomas Hobbes--insufficiently short gorefest...nothing more than an exercise in sadism.
| Original Score: F
A patently over-the-top piece of gore-drenched survival horror. Very familiar but very fun.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
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
| Original Score: 3.5/5
This film will not be easily forgotten or shaken off, I guarantee this is one for the ages%u2026 you are about to enter a new frontier of horror.
| Original Score: 5/5
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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
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.
...an entertaining horror flick that benefits from the inclusion of several gleefully over-the-top kill sequences.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Though neither subtle nor particularly original, Gens' spin on the meat-movie classic has both nightmarish energy to spare.
Despite all its primal brutality, Frontier(s) is a deep, intelligent and very political movie.
