All Critics (14) | Top Critics (2)

This low-budget found-footage horror debut from British director Elliot Goldner has plenty of chilling atmosphere but lacks bite.

Top Critic

There's nothing wildly original here, and the gotcha scares get repetitive. But the script is witty, the cast are simply terrific ... a spiky, intelligent little throat-grabber.

takes the viewer to a deep dark place of nightmares, where reason will be devoured by the primordial shadows.

Much of this may sound familiar, but The Borderlands' crafty virtue is that it understands that hand-held camerawork and boo scares aren't an excuse to neglect plot, dialogue or characters.

Much of the build-up may retread familiar The Last Exorcism territory, but the claustrophobic final act is properly alarming scary fare.

Observer (UK)

Low-budget horror films based around found footage began to seem outdated not long after The Blair Witch Project but this British excursion into the form is surprisingly enjoyable.

Audience Reviews for The Borderlands

½

Constructed as found footage (or is it?), this film recalls the likes of The Blair Witch Project and, especially, The Last Exorcism. What makes this much better than the latter (though not the former), is the relationship between the two lead characters and the strength of the performances, and an especially claustrophobic and genuinely unsettling final act that is up there with the likes of The Descent for squirm inducing nastiness. Really very good indeed,
