Charlie’s Farm (2014)


“In an effort to do something different, four friends head into Australia’s outback to explore Charlie’s Farm, the site where a violent family met their end at the hands of an angry mob. Despite all warnings, they persist in their horror-seeking adventure.”


Chris Sun is a fellow Australian director, and I have enjoyed his previous effort Daddy’s Little Girl (a truly nasty and effective revenge flick).

Charlie’s Farm I was very skeptical of at first, but the film soon impressed me to no end when it finally got going.

It has cliche’s, sure, but those are most likely intentional and add to the fun here. The main thing in this film is Charlie himself, played by the impressively large Nathan Jones in a very menacing role.

Other cameos include horror film legends such as Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley,legends of  horror cinema in their own right, of course.

The gore effects in this film are done extremely well, and some very nasty kills which are always inventive and quite extreme.(I think very minimal CGI was used, which is always lovely to see natural FX used).

All in all, Charlie’s Farm is another impressive feature from Chris Sun, he is certainly someone to watch in the future for new flicks, apparently one is in production right now called Boar, also starring Nathan Jones, which I am very excited to see!


8.5 out of 10 – a modern day slasher done correctly – finally!
