Frontier(s) Review

There is certainly no shortage of powertools, bloodbaths, or primal screams in this frenetic and entertaining horror flick. Apparently it is very popular right now to use the Texas Chainsaw Massacre formula in various locales in Europe. This one adds a neo-nazi twist. The movie is so chock full of gross-out moments you can never really catch your breath. I’m not sure if this pacing or similarities to at least 5 other movies (Is the director Xavier Gens a homie of Alexandre Aja?) lessened my experience, or perhaps it was my lack of empathy for any character including the main one. But there are plenty of chilling moments here to give this a recommendation.  Rating: 7/10
