Audience Reviews for Farmhouse
Farmhouse features a typical exploitation film set-up: a driving accident causes a couple to seek refuge on a remote farm where the inhabitants end up being torturous psychotics. But Farmhouse takes this premise into truly strange, unexpected, and twisted territory that most viewers will never see coming.
"Farmhouse" is a low budget horror film with big aspirations to be something better than that, and despite some detours along the way that threaten to sidetrack it, it mostly delivers on that initial promise. You can tell from the beginning that it's going to be different from the rest. It actually takes the time to tell a story, mostly through the use of a web of carefully planned flashbacks. It's something most low budget horror films wouldn't even attempt, and for obvious reasons, but this clever little picture pulls it off. And then we get to the farmhouse of the title, where the film falls into the torture porn trap and I thought it was going the route of the "Saw" pictures to appeal to fans of the sick and twisted. Even when the movie gets quite tortuous, I stayed with it despite my disappointment because the opening does such a nice job of getting you to sympathize with the two lead characters. But unbeknownst to me, the movie was not done by a long shot. There is one more major twist and it delves into the supernatural for the first time. It seems silly at first, but one final flashback cemented the deal and in a complete surprise to me, I didn't see it coming. Credit screenwriter Daniel Coughlin for suckering me in, thinking outside the box for the genre and having the smarts to pull it off convincingly. This guy should move on to bigger and even better things because this was pretty impressive for only his second script. It's a rare and beautiful thing to find a B-movie that's not content to be ordinary, and "Farmhouse" is that picture. There's a lot to admire here.
the constant time changes are more annoying then horrifying. the only good thing about this film is that it has an ending that saves it from being a complete lost of time that you'll never get back.
