Jonny T here with great news that The Borderlands has a release! It will be in theatre’s on 4th of April and on DVD 7th of April. I was lucky enough to catch this at last year’s MAYHEM horror festival in Nottingham and I can tell you it’s great! A British found footage affair that tells the tale of a Vatican representative sent to investigate the strange going on in a small village church. It’s loaded with scares and twists and all-round extremely creepy! So keep your eyes out for my full review coming very soon,

Gordon Kennedy, Aidan McArdle, Patrick Godfrey &
Directed by Elliot Goldner

Don’t believe everything you see! A team of Vatican investigators are sent to the British West Country to look into reports of paranormal activity during a Christening at a newly re-opened remote church. Father Crellick has webcam proof of artefacts moving on the altar and other weird happenings. But two of the three-man team aren't so sure.
Deacon and Father Mark Amidon are experts in the field of faked miracles and play the footage continually looking for wires and trickery. Going back through church records though, the holy place does seem to have a history of strange occurrences, and there is that raspy scratching sound they keep hearing coming from the walls. So they set up cameras in the nave and around the pulpit in the hope of filming and recording something unusual. An elaborate fake, or could this one be the real deal? If they don’t lose their way they may just find out.
