Nothing but pure entertainment
4 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen every Afterdark Horrorfest film from the first and second years running. While some of them are real stinkers, and some are not bad, but forgettable, others, like Borderland, are really, truly excellently done and overlooked, which brings me to how great this movie manages to be and how surprisingly pleasing it is. I was not expecting much to begin with, as I have that feeling going into every Afterdark Horrorfest film, because I never know what I will get, and the opening is really not that exciting, so I got a little disheartened.

After awhile, after the movie spends enough time creating it's setting and theme that is, it picks up pace and by now you have gotten the concept and are beginning to become interested in how exciting and well done it is becoming. It is a little slow paced, considering that the first half is basically made up of showing how the three friends are wanting to have a good time by getting wasted until one of them is kidnapped to, later discovered, be used for a human sacrifice, so that might throw some people off.

The film has some points of really high interest however, and even though it is slow paced after a disheartening opening, it is nonetheless extremely entertaining throughout the remainder. The acting is really likable, if not wonderful acting it is tolerable, and the characters are manageable, and the story, while caught up in itself at times, is fun and thrilling. The movie just manages to entertain so well, that I could watch it again many times to come for how entertaining it is. It is a pretty basic film, with nothing new to add, but that does not matter when compared to how interesting and amusing it comes off as. At least, I thought it was amusing; highly amusing.
