Consensus: Perhaps slapdash with its aspirations toward message-making, this ultra-gory horror flick nonetheless delivers the bloody goods.

Manohla Dargis
New York Times

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.

John Anderson

Can a movie be an adrenalin-fueled, blood-gushing thrill ride and still be as boring as dirt? Apparently.

Bill Gibron

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

Scott Tobias
AV Club

A relentlessly ugly and derivative reworking of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Lucius Gore

Despite all its primal brutality, Frontier(s) is a deep, intelligent and very political movie.

One Guy's Opinion

Nasty, brutish but--pace Thomas Hobbes--insufficiently short gorefest...nothing more than an exercise in sadism.

Jim Ridley
Village Voice

It's as relentless as it is hateful, hammily directed and derivative of the dreariest slop in contemporary American horror cinema.

Felix Gonzalez Jr.
DVD Review

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.

Hardly a trailblazer.

It might be one of the goriest movies I've ever seen, but unfortunately, it isn't a good one to say the least. It's the oft repeated theme (as in… More

The La Haine Multiple Implement Massacre. It's very French and also very vicious. It's easy to see how Xavier Gens wound up directing Hitman. His… More
