Zombie horror? Should be labeled cultural pseudo-occult heritage documentary...
28 May 2012 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Alright, well "Zombie Farm" was nothing at all what I had expected or hoped it would be. Having bought it from Amazon, I was intrigued by the rather interesting looking DVD cover, and being a fan of all things zombie, I just had to add it to my collection.

"Zombie Farm" almost literally takes forever to get up in pace and take you places. The first half of the movie is about film-maker Pilar Franco (played by Adriana Cataño, who actually did a rather good job) following the small time swindler and seer Roque (played by Roberto Montesinos) around in order to make a documentary. He is taking money from the naive and hopeful, in return giving them something to hold on to in their troubled lives and situations. However, one client visits a voodoo woman after Roque failed to help her with her violent husband, and end up being haunted by her husband whom has now returned from death.

"Zombie Farm" gives you a lot of facts, whether they are true or just made up I know not, about certain aspects of the Latino knack for the supernatural. And yeah, I did find that interesting, but sitting for about half a movie 'learning' about this cultural stuff was not what I had expected from a movie labeled 'horror'.

Then finally the zombies were revealed, yeah, it turned out there actually was zombies in the movie, but don't get your hopes up. Nothing major to come for here. It is not zombies in the Hollywood (or Romero-influenced) manner as most of us love, but take on that whole voodoo aspect, which didn't really impress me.

Truth be told, then I fell asleep during this movie, it was just so dull and uneventful, not to mention slow paced. It was like its engine was left on, but the gear was in neutral. This movie fairly much was dull inside out. I don't know if you have to be Latino to fully grasp what was going on in this movie, or if you have to be into voodoo, but I do know, that for a zombie aficionado (Romero-style, and proud of it) like myself, then "Zombie Farm" was all but impressive. The movie was fighting a struggling battle uphill, and lost, I might add.

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't all bad. The movie was actually nicely shot, and they did good jobs with the camera work. And the people cast for the various roles were actually doing great jobs, and it was nice to see an entire cast of new faces for a change.

Just goes to prove the old saying: "don't judge a book by its cover". Which in this case was a DVD cover. I bought it solely because the cover was appealing and held the promise of some proper zombie action. "Zombie Farm" will be shelved in my DVD collection, bagged and tagged, never to be taken out and put into the DVD player ever again, it was just not worth the time of day.
