Frontier(s) (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
A gang of young thieves flee Paris during the violent aftermath of a political election, only to hole up at an Inn run by neo-Nazis. (108 mins.)
Director: Xavier Gens
“ If you've seen any of the other "8 Films to Die for", you'll understand why they weren't able to screen Frontier(s) at the inaugural Afterdark Horrorfest. This is far and away the best film from any of the 4 Afterdark installments. Before I go any further, it's important to note that when it comes to horror flicks, the French are downright insane. It's almost as if there's no limits for these filmmakers, and it's absolutely great. Miraculously, they are able to blend extreme gore and violence with original, gripping story-lines. I was blown away by Frontier(s). ” - LeonCrane
