The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Empty Acre (2007)

Starring: Jennifer Plas, John Wilson
Director: Patrick Rea

A couple is dealing with their joys of a newborn baby while living on a farm in rural Kansas. The farm has a patch of ground where nothing grows and evil lurks. Things get strange after the couple's baby mysteriously disappears one night.

My Take:
The movie sort of reminded me of a Lovecraft tale set in middle America farming community. This is definitely a slow moving flick carried by the relationship of the couple and how they deal with their child's disappearance. It's pulled off admirably. For me, the ending could have been a bit better but its still a decent one to watch.

Rating: In the middle
