‘THE BORDERLANDS’ is a British found footage horror film. Written and directed by Elliot Goldner, this finds two paranormal investigators of played by Gordon Kennedy and Robin Hill working out what is happening with the strange occurrences of a church in a small English village. The film is surprisingly slow burning, and it is a very male only affair, however thanks to a believable, easy going and often very funny, chemistry from Kennedy and Hill, and the film anchors along nicely. There are also some genuine attempts of refreshing the whole idea of a found footage film, with it coming off helmet camera the entire running time. While it might like some bite, it does leave with a interesting ending and more so something very refreshing, without needing to change too much from the very stale formula.
