Frontière(s) (Frontier(s))
Alone in a Paris plagued by deadly race riots, the young and beautiful Yasmine is looking for a way out. In her desperation, she turns to her shady ex-boyfriend. Together with his two thug friends, they pull off a bold heist and head for the border. With the police close behind, they hide out in a seemingly peaceful inn. But the mysterious innkeeper is hiding a secret more terrifying than anything they could ever imagine. Trapped in an endless maze of tunnels crawling with hungry subhuman cannibals, they must fight to survive their bloody initiation into the innkeeper's evil family cult.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The real surprise of Frontier(s) is that this creepy, bloody contemporary gross-out also has some ideas, visual and otherwise, wedged among its sanguineous drips."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Can a movie be an adrenalin-fueled, blood-gushing thrill ride and still be as boring as dirt? Apparently."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Frontier(s) still finds a way to mine the past while staying rooted in the present. It may seem recognizable, but it's a well made and effective awareness"
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"Though neither subtle nor particularly original, Gens' spin on the meat-movie classic has both nightmarish energy to spare."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Explicit in Frontier(s) is its maker's belief that nothing should be left to the imagination."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"A relentlessly ugly and derivative reworking of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Despite all its primal brutality, Frontier(s) is a deep, intelligent and very political movie."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"Nasty, brutish but--pace Thomas Hobbes--insufficiently short gorefest...nothing more than an exercise in sadism."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"has neither the weight nor the ingenuity to make a solid impression past its unorthodox dispatching techniques."
‑ Chris Cabin,
"This film will not be easily forgotten or shaken off, I guarantee this is one for the ages%u2026 you are about to enter a new frontier of horror."
‑ Brad Miska, Bloody Disgusting
"It's as relentless as it is hateful, hammily directed and derivative of the dreariest slop in contemporary American horror cinema."
‑ Jim Ridley, Village Voice
"As a political allegory, it has no substance. As a genre piece, it is derivative, but it takes from the best and brings it together reasonably well."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"Hardly a trailblazer."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"Perhaps it's because I see so many by-the-numbers horror movies but when a director is willing to go as far off the rails as Gens tries to go in Frontier(s), it goes a long way with me."
‑ Brian Tallerico, The Deadbolt
"a bludgeoning, bloody trawl through the cliches of survival horror, with a strong contemporary political subtext - and as with any good barbecue, there is plenty of red sauce, and absolutely nothing has been left underdone."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
