Goofs

When Deacon, Gray and Mark sit down in the kitchen to eat their fish and chips, we clearly see all three men open their paper packets and start to eat. However, after Deacon gets up to look out of the window after they hear noise outside, the shots taken from the head-mounted cameras show the food packets unopened and the shots taken from the camera mounted on the kitchen ceiling show the packets open. The packets open and close as the shots change through the scene. See more »

Original, refreshing horror
27 April 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I won't talk about the story because I don't want to give anything away. I went into this knowing little, and that's the best way to approach it.

Those put off by the fact that this is found footage, need to bear in mind that (as the actor Gordon Kennedy recently pointed out), 'found footage' is no longer a gimmick but a genre of its own or, if you like, a horror sub genre. Complaining about a movie being another found footage movie is like complaining about Saving Private Ryan being another war movie. Anyway. . .

Having read a lot of mixed reviews about this movie I decided to trust one radio reviewer's opinion and watch it. I had heard people complain that the dialogue was bad (completely untrue) and that the movie was boring (what?) but found myself riveted all the way through to the ending which was not only a surprise, but genuinely affecting in the same slightly baffling but very disturbing way that Ben Wheatley's Kill List ended. Any horror movie that removes all doubt by the end isn't doing a very good job in my opinion anyway. It's the WTF? element that really puts the icing on the cake and heightens the terror.

For a small budget movie I think they did very well. They kept the scope of the story narrow, the locations simple and focused on atmosphere and tension. The acting was very good by all parties and on a technical level its clear (even to someone not in the filmmaking business like me) that everyone knew exactly what they were doing. I've seen so many low-budget horrors that make me wonder how some people are allowed to go near a camera, but in this case filmmaking is exactly what these people should be doing.

In some ways it could be called formulaic. It certainly owes a debt to movies like The Blair Witch Project, but it does something knew, and the ending is all its own. Wow. . . What an ending.

Incidentally I read in an interview with the filmmakers that the movie originally had a different title, which in fact gives more away than the movie itself about what is going on. The Borderlands is a much better title because of its ambiguity.

Great movie which I'm looking forward very much to seeing again.
