Last week, ‘The Farm’ arrived amid a ton of anticipation and hype, and frankly I was excited to see what kind of twisted gore was in store for what seemed to be a detached, deranged, and devilishly entertaining film, one that could be a sleeper pick for horror fans.
Fright Nerd has covered ‘The Farm’ extensively, from it’s run at the festivals to it’s pending arrival on VOD, and last week was an exciting time to see what was finally causing all the buzz that was calling it one of the most violent films of the year.
Unfortunately, ‘The Farm’ served absolutely no purpose, and was mindlessly lost with no clear direction, definition, purpose, or place within it’s own existence.
Hans Stjernswärd’s film had the look and feel of a special, memorable, horror flick but a terrible script coupled with a lackluster approach at giving any explanation or backstory for anyone, anything, or any event going on within the film completely derailed it.
In similar films, they rely on the gore and kills to get by, but this film dragged on endlessly with very little of either, leaving you waiting for something to happen, and something to entertain you.
The film had all the ingredients to be a super cool film, but just like the final image in the final scene of the film, the film had me scratching my head waiting for something….anything.
