‘Evil has a new form’

The Borderlands – also promoted as The Border Lands and retitled Final Prayer for US release – is a 2013 British horror film written and directed by Elliott Goldner and produced by Jen Handorf. It stars Gordon Kennedy, Robin Hill, Aidan McArdle.


A team of Vatican investigators is sent to the British West Country to investigate reports of paranormal activity at a remote church…



The Borderlands is a genuinely creepy, scary horror film that sits in between a ghost story and a pagan tale of horror. It was one of the sleeper successes of the festival circuit, and loses little of its spookiness on disc. Excellent stuff.


Other reviews:

“Sure, it’s a little rough around the edges. A couple of secondary characters never quite come to life, a revelation about one of the major characters seems a little unnecessary, and the climax veers towards Blair Witch territory, but for the most part The Borderlands succeeds admirably.” Iain Robertson, Starburst

“Deacon and Grey’s bickering, boredom and bonding has the easy chemistry of a flat-share comedy in the best possible way […] The Borderlands is a tense, atmospheric chiller that will send a shiver down your spine and definitely make you jump.” Jonathan Hatfull, SciFiNow

“This is Goldner’s first feature film and he accomplished something that most seasoned of directors completely fail on! Even the camera work is smooth compared to a lot of other found footage flicks. Goldner scares us with what we can’t or don’t see rather than splashing our eyes with cheap thrills.” Maven’s Movie Vault of Horror
