Critic Consensus: Perhaps slapdash with its aspirations toward message-making, this ultra-gory horror flick nonetheless delivers the bloody goods.

Critic Reviews for Frontier(s)
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.
Can a movie be an adrenalin-fueled, blood-gushing thrill ride and still be as boring as dirt? Apparently.
Despite all its primal brutality, Frontier(s) is a deep, intelligent and very political movie.
Audience Reviews for Frontier(s)
OOOOh lots of gore here...
Pretty fucked up movie.
It might be one of the goriest movies I've ever seen, but unfortunately, it isn't a good one to say the least. It's the oft repeated theme (as in Vacancy, TCM, Hostel, Martyrs, etc.) of a psychotic family that kills a group of teenagers one by one except for one. Won't give away the ending although I don't feel it'd make any difference. The blood keeps flowing from one or more of the characters for most of the part, and it won't be a huge exaggeration to say that the movie literally runs on blood. The characters are hardly established to feel anything for 'em. The worst part was the poor performance by Karina Testa, the one who plays the role of the protagonist Yasmin. Her unrealistic acting is apparent for more than a couple of times. Seems like she doesn't know the difference between shivering and shaking. And the old Nazi, the head of the dysfunctional family seeking pure blood, overacted more than his character required to (overact). I can overlook its illogical scenes and nonsensical bloodshed, but then the movie hardly has anything else to keep it going. Gore and blood are the central characters of this movie. The plot is too thin and depends heavily on violence. On the lighter side, it never got intolerably boring. And if you're a fan of the movies full of action and violence, no matter whether the plot exists or not, you may find this movie very entertaining.
