BORDERLAND (2008)

Foolishly I had hopes that BORDERLAND would at least be entertaining, but it wasn't. Right from the beginning I was annoyed with the weird overexposure effect that made it look like the entire movie was filmed in the glow of a nuclear explosion. Then comes the douche bag college douchers who I wanted to murder instantly. These annoying sacks of shit go down to Mexico for a drug-fueled night of whoring when they get caught up with a gang of drug dealing toughies who want to kill them as a sacrifice to the spirit gods. Good! Kill 'em.

This movie is an insult to the horror genre. Any potential this film had was blown by the weak special effects, the by-the-numbers script, the laughable fake tattoos and the shit direction. It's nowhere near mean-spirited enough to be scary...hell, one of the fucking hobbits from LOTR is a bad guy! C'mon. They did do good by casting a hot chick in a supporting role, but she never even got close to naked or even topless.
