Plot – Spoilers:
The streets of France are riddled with riots following elections and a young gang use the opportunity to make away with 125K in cash. One of them is shot, and so the group split with the plan of eventually meeting at the border.
Two of them drive down there and decide to pitch tent at a hostel where they even get laid and shrug off the stress of the preceding hours. Things begin to go pear shaped when the people running the place notice their cash bag. But the gang of street thugs aren’t about to be let off easy with a simple theft as they soon discover the bizarre truth about the loonies living there.
1. Tom and Farid snaking their way through the narrow tunnel is claustrophobic and so well captured, you almost feel the weakening breath as Tom whimpers that he is stuck.
2. The climax as Yasmine in her nice white dress gets progressively sprayed with gore as she moves from one victim to another.
I WANT TO PROTECT EVE/EVA WITH MY LIFE
It was comparable to an ill-advised fusion of The Descent (2005) and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003).
Absolutely stunning film
This film is silly. Bunch of Muslim kids on the run end up at a Motel/Meat works/Mine? run by inbred cannibals who are also nazis! Could be a B grade/Troma film if it didn’t take itself so very seriously. Basically Texas Chainsaw Massacre with baguettes. But not nearly as good.
this movie was a real rollercoaster. GREAT MOVIE.
wow….im quite picky on movies that would class as being good above others but this one def a goody…so intense,acting and story line,gore without being ott about it so gd….if i was to be a dick and find something about it to poo poo about id thumbs down that there was no nudity or rape scenes…but 9/10 if my opinion was asked…the french can eat my ass but gotta hand it to the arrogant fags…they produce some really gd dramas/horrors
watched it with my boyfriend. pretty tame
Storyline was a bit suspect and acting a bit amateurish, but thumbs up for the excellent gore, especially the saw scene. That was awesome. The french make some of the goriest films and french girls are hot. All in all it was quite good.
movie started out well with an interesting plot, then it deteriorated (nazi wants his son to marry muslim?..), the gore was outstanding however, mixed feelings on this one for me… not a bad movie but also not very convincing
The Father looks like master oogway
Well-made film with a nonsensical garbage plot. 3/10.
Man, going by the French tag really brings up some real gems.
This is why i love french horror like Inside, Raw, High Tension and Martyrs
Incredible New French Extremity film and one of my new favorites. With combining real world French politics, the rise of Right wing beliefs and some good old French history, with excellent gore, acting and cinematography? *chefs kiss*
Really great movie! Not quite High tension level of “wow” but I was pleasantly surprised
Martyrs,Inside,High tension were the golden trilogy of Epic French extreme fims for me,Frontiers has every right to be up there too…the BIG 4 of the new wave of French extreme films,Livide is another excellent movie,but as good as it is,doesn’t have the same visceral disturbing brutality & themes as the first 4 flicks mentioned
Dude, I love french horror movies! The movie is more than recommendable for horror and gore fans. The story is well… how should I say classic and cheesy but really perfectly packaged, even if I have seen these typical “the final girl” films too often. It is a clear mix between everything you love like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the Descent and High Tension which is by the way my favorite horror movie. The whole film is just dirty and bloody. I would like to write more about the film, but just watch it.
