Review by Monique Thompson
With the help of her friends, Emily moves to a remote home to take better care of her brother, Zack who is diagnosed with cerebral palsy. But what they don’t know is that the house kept a terrifying secret that will haunt them one by one.
Although the haunted ‘house-in-the-middle of nowhere’ scenario has been played out many times over, Bornless Ones somehow makes it work in this low-budget horror flick. The world of indie-horror is doing quite alright. Emily purchases an old rundown house, practically in the middle of nowhere, so that she’s closer to care for her brother whose suffering from a quite severe case cerebral palsy. Shortly after taking residence in the home, strange things immediately start to happen. Emily has invited a few close friends over to help her get settled into the place but end up uncovering something evil.
The group ends up finding some strange symbols engraved near the windows and after washing them away, realize they’ve awakened an evil presence. The demonic presence enters the friends, one by one, causing a great deal of torment while they each must still face their fears and hidden secrets. It’s clear these friends possess some deceptive secrets that really make you start to question them.
There’s certainly no shortage of blood and guts in Bornless Ones. If you’ve been waiting for that next gruesome horror flick, then this is the perfect film. And what’s important is for an indie, the graphics and visual quality is done very well. The lead role of Emily is played by Margaret Judson, whom although she doesn’t have the longest career sheet yet is still a very decent and believable actress. In addition, the supporting cast is also just as talented which ends up leaving Bornless Ones as a very interesting and pretty scary flick.
