Borderland (2007)

Director: Zev Berman

Starring: Brian Presley, Rider Strong, Jake Muxworthy, Beto Cuevas, Martha Higareda, Sean Astin, Damian Alcazar, Marco Bacuzzi, Roberto Sosa

More info: IMDb

Tagline: The Devil's Playground Is Just Around The Corner

Plot: Three college students, Phil, Ed, and Henry take a road trip into Mexico for a week of drinking and carefree fun only to have Phil find himself a captive of a group of satanic Mexican drug smugglers who kill tourists and whom are looking for a group of new ones to prepare for a sacrifice.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

Don't ever fucking go to Mexico, Man. Damn!  This flick is brutal from start to finish (I watched the unrated director's cut).  The story is simple but it's the often relentless, unflinching pace that makes this a real kick in the guts for even the remotely squeamish (which I'm not, btw).  Even I had a hell of a time trying to restrain myself during the machete fight on the rooftop.  Yowza.  Sean Astin is great in this.  The ending is uncompromising and harsh.  This is a gory as shit horror ride that shouldn't be missed.  Don't ever fucking go to Mexico, Man.
