Charlies Farm is an Australian horror film. It’s harder for a country like mine to put out great horror with our much smaller film industry… but this one punches well above its weight. It’s a great movie and great fun to watch!
Starring Tara Reid, Kane Hodder (Friday 13th part 5 onwards) and Bill Moseley (texas chainsaw massacre and various rob zombie films) and visual fx by Chris Sun (his artwork is brilliant btw… do yourself a favour and check it out). This one follows the fortunes of four friends who decide to have a weekend away and visit a farm rumoured to be the site of multiple fruit picker killings. Morbid curiosity of course gets the better of the friends and despite warnings from the locals they decide to check out the farm house and of course the shit hits the fan from there.
I like the shooting style of Charlies Farm. Very defined yet very gritty. The special effects are gruesome with out being over the top in gore. Needless gore can sometimes dilute the impact of the horror on the viewer. Thankfully this is gritty but not excessive. I really hope big things materialise in the future of Chris Sun, he deserves it!
Overall this was a really fun movie to watch. It’s not too cerebal so you can watch it with friends but entertaining enough to watch alone.
