A bunch of thieves are making a getaway from their latest heist, when they try to find a place to rest as internal conflict arises. Unfortunately for the weary travelers, they rest their heads in a hotel run by inbred Nazis who are intent on wiping out racial impurity.
Although Iíve heard a lot of hype about this film, it didn't live up to my expectations. A gorefest it is though, rivaling almost anything I've seen in awhile to say the least. Don't get e wrong, this movie is a visceral ass kicker and it doesn't let up for a minute, but doesn't carry enough real weight to be relevant.
This movie succeeds in being evil to the core and damn near ultraviolent. By the time this film ends, your more casual friends will turn away and you probably won't jump right in to a second viewing. The movie is tense throughout and the sense of foreboding is deep.
Here's what is not so good. What Frontiers lacks is a serious emotional attachment that really anchors the viewer.
Although people are getting hacked up under racial premises, it isn't enough when your characters are somewhat poorly written. This one is also derivative, which hurts it as well. How many deranged houses of hillbillies are there? I mean come on it has been done. Oddly enough though the film treats itself seriously and with respect and you will almost feel as if you're watching a bit of brilliance.
Ultimately, Frontiers may be badass and definitely worth watching but it lacks enough substance to keep you coming back. This Inside-meets-TCM project will be loved by gorehounds and liked by the rest of us. Honestly, who doesn't want sex, death and melting humans in their face?
I won't comment on video and audio quality because I'm not sure this is the official release.
