The banlieues of Paris are burning, and as a young girl from the slums attempts to elude police by hiding out at a sprawling inn near the Luxembourg border she becomes locked in a vicious battle for survival against a group of Neo-Nazi fanatics intent on using her to start a new Aryan brotherhood. As the votes cast in the latest election are tallied, it quickly becomes apparent that an extreme right-wing party has been elected into power by a wide margin. In the aftermath of the announcement, the streets fill with protestors and riots erupt all throughout the country. Yasmina is a poor girl who has never known a life outside of the ghetto, and she sees the riots as an opportunity to stage a series of smash-and-grab robberies that could provide her with the money needed to improve her lot in life. After rounding up a few pals and robbing a few businesses under the cover of the chaos, Yasmina and her friends are pursued by the police and forced to split up. Before they part ways, however, they all agree to regroup at an inn just outside of Luxembourg. The proprietors of the inn are the Von Geisler clan. Led by a tyrannical, jackbooted patriarch, the Von Geisler's are a curious lot who at first appear to be stuck in the past. But the Von Geisler's aren't just eccentric, they are devoted Neo-Nazis with a twisted fantasy of starting a new master race -- and they have chosen Yasmina as their Aryan Eve. Now, in order for Yasmina to escape a grim fate as a fascistic breeding machine, she and her friends must fight for their lives against the brutish Von Geisler boys and their savage sisters in a vicious battle that will transform this once peaceful inn into a blood soaked abattoir. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

A (very) long, (very) bloody, (very) tiresome, (very) stupid journey into Muslim women's liberation, FRONTIERS is schlock slasher/horror given an up-to-the-minute rendering by some French would-be cineasts. When two armed men can't manage to shoot one unarmed woman before she rises from the floor and stumbles out out of the room, you know you're in the land of little intelligence. This one had me fooled for awhile, what with some relatively creative chase-and-slaughter, Fascist French/Germans, a nod to the country's rising right-wing and nice wide-screen cinematography of especially ugly scenery. If you absolutely must slake your slasher/terror appetite, you'd do better (somewhat, at least) by renting "Inside."

Predominately films that would be classified as 'horror' with a few notable exceptions. Many films get lumped into this catagory because the director has made films considered "transgressive".
Twisted, Scary, Gross
