When three Texas University students travel to a Mexican border town on the eve of their graduation, the last thing they expect is to face their own deaths.Without warning, they fall prey to an ancient blood cult hellbent on finding candidates for human sacrifice. Based on true events, Borderland tells a story which blends the raw fear of Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the stark reality of In Cold Blood, evoking a world soaked in paranoia, fear, and dread.--© After Dark Films

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...ultimately descends into a brutal orgy of torture and mutilation that's harrowing to watch, because it's played completely real."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"Borderland takes this libertarian view of paradise (no law, no government, just rich people doing what they want) and turns it on its head in a particularly brutal and ugly way, without expressing a political point of view in a heavy-handed way."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Berman balances the weight of the actual events with the desire to mount a simply effective horror story, and I think he pulls it off quite well."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Cinematical
"Borderland teeters between a torture film and a spiritual thriller, but it also plays around with both genres in very intriguing ways."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"An unnerving, ruthless, borderline-mesmerizing thriller."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"...one can't help but admire any film that features a villain with a penchant for saying things like "I'll decorate my bedroom wall with your skin"..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Every once in awhile, a film can defy expectations, and Lionsgate's Borderland is one such case."
‑ Scott Collura, IGN Movies
