Sunday Matinee: Cannibal Farm [Film]

“The Harver family head out on an idyllic summer camping trip where they can bury past tensions and enjoy some family bonding. But when their camp is sabotaged by an unseen intruder in the night, they head to the nearby creepy old farm desperate for help, where vengeful farmer Hunt Hansen and his hideously deformed son aren’t farming animals…” – October Coast PR

Let’s start things off here with a call to all the real die hard horror fans out there: this one is EXACTLY for you. I can in full confidence state that Cannibal Farm is one of the finest blood soaked experiences to be brought to the screen in quite a long time. It has everything you need! From betrayal to a brilliant mixture of gore and jump scares all the way back around to ridiculously overdone monologues that graciously add to the overgrowing fear and anxiety that comes with watching a full on massacre occur.

A few weeks ago, I made a statement on the podcast Super Geeky Play Date about how I wanted to see the cannibalism aspect of horror films become a as commonplace and popular as zombie and vampire films. Little did I know that awaiting in my inbox was exactly what I was talking about. Cannibal Farm is an amazing callback to all of the gruesome fun that was developed in the late 70’s and throughout the 80’s. It’s a bit campy, as it should be. It’s a tad bit over emotional, also as it should be. And just when you think you have seen the height of the film’s insanity, hold the fucking phone, because something even more insane is right around the proverbial (and maybe literal) corner.


I simply can not stress this enough people: this is a genuinely amazing horror film. Writer/director Charlie Steeds brings us a wonderfully stylized work of torture and delightfully frightening moving images that deserves at least a few viewings. Check it out!

Cannibal Farm is available now on VOD. Check out the trailer here:
