Verdict: Dreadful

Story: The Farm starts when a couple Nora (Yessayan) and Alec (Gaylord) are travelling across country when they look to stay in a remote location. They wake up separate, both in cage, like animals, with Nora being used for diary, while Alec is placed in the meet pile, as the owners of the farm are selling the human meet to the locals.

While the Landlord (Volok) has been operating this farm for years, Nora decides she is going to go down without a fight, looking to save the other women trapped their and end the operation before she becomes the latest piece of meat on the production line.

Thoughts on The Farm

Final Thoughts The Farm is looking to create shock value with how it presents the human production line, showing the pure scale of the operation, the problem comes with showing us just how little we learn about the lead couple, they are given such a little amount of time to be placed into this world, by the time we get to the farm, which is quick, the film focuses more on how the farm operates, with the pure numbers involved, which doesn’t seem to give us enough to care about. We can have a huge operation going on without needing to focus solely on the villainous side of the events, we are given no reason to see how the couple could escape or why we should even be waiting for them to try and escape, it just wants to give us shock value, without earning any of those moments. Even the acting doesn’t seem like it hits home, with most scenes falling flat of making the impact they want with the strangeness involved with the farmers.

Overall: Boring Cheap Shocked Horror.

  1. SD Gates – I work in the medical field, but really want to be a full-time gardener or writer or something that does not require me having to take a shower every morning. I have to work to buy my plants. My favorite thing to do is sit on the patio, with my puppies, writing, staring at the garden, daydreaming the day away.
