Starring: Nora Yessayan, Alec Gaylord, and Ken Volok
Directed and written by: Hans Stjernsward
This sure isn’t old MacDonald’s farm! On this farm, you won’t find any “moo’s,” or “oink oink’s” only screams! This community of cannibals force anyone caught eating meat to become their cattle. That is exactly what happens to Nora (Nora Yessayan), and Alec (Alec Gaylord) after their stop at the wrong diner in “The Farm.”
Like in the “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “The Hills Have Eyes,” this couple finds themselves in the middle of nowhere with people who are very different. After ordering the meat, they end as the new cattle on the farm. The horror here is that people are treated just like cattle are, and there is no holding back. People are caged, shocked, and even inseminated. To add to the fun, the cannibal farmhands are all wearing masks of farm animals.
“The Farm” starts off feeling like the TCM, but soon takes on a life of its own. No this couple is not going to win over the audience, but that’s alright with how everything turns out. Watching people treated as cattle is shocking enough, but the true surprise is what happens in the end. The movie can be taken as a message against the mistreatment of cattle, or just another wild horror movie. Either way, I give it 3 pools of blood!
