The Farm – USA, 2018

‘In this place you’re the main dish’

The Farm is a 2018 American horror feature film written and directed by Hans Stjernswärd (short: Geppetto); it stars Nora Yessayan, Alec Gaylord, and Ken Volok.

After having stopping at a roadside diner to eat meat, a young couple is kidnapped and treated like farm animals…


“Egor’s cinematography is well crafted, the sound design is atmospheric and Sergei Stern’s score is a masterclass in musical composition, and probably my favourite aspect of the film. There’s good production design, the acting is decent […] The film’s downfall is simply that it just doesn’t have enough on-screen action…” Adam Weber, Adam the Movie God

” …while the violence works for part of The Farm, it eventually loses all its traction, grinding to a halt in its third act. The Farm is one of those films where its main idea has immense potential. Unfortunately, while the picture has some stellar moments of gross violence, it ultimately fails in keeping viewers engaged.” Michael Pementel, Dread Central

” …certain aspects of the film paired with the brilliant constructions of uncomfortable scenes will give the film life and find its audience. Just don’t go looking for story or character. This film hinges on enjoying the premise and how far the creep factor can take the audience.” Freddy Ruiz, Ghastly Grinning

” …it is the sadistic edge that gets muddled by the goofy villains that undoes this. Rather than stick to a straight torture p*rn film, like Hostel, or a horror satire, like Motel Hell, it splits the difference and ends up less weighty as a consequence. It’s not a film without merits, as there is some authentically scary stuff, and the gore effects are brutal.” Eric Li, The Scariest Things
