  • The words "low-budget found-footage horror film" usually signal disaster... Not so for The Borderlands, which turns out to be a smart, funny and genuinely spooky movie, and British to boot.

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

  • Once things start to go bump in the night it all gets yawnsome.

  • Writer-director Elliot Goldner has put together a slow-burn thriller that grips, twists, jostles and pokes.

  • A frisky British found footage horror that's well worth your time.

  • 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.

Audience Reviews for The Borderlands

  • Jun 29, 2014
    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,
