Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!


At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.


It's an amazing and heartbreaking story.


The biggest problem with this movie is it’s a little better than you think it might be, which somehow makes it worse. As in, it takes itself a bit too seriously, which makes most of the movie feel kind of dull.


Don't get me wrong, this movie was pretty underrated. The film carried a good story for the first hour and it was a pretty good film. However, after the first hour, it felt like the script was rushed. Because, well, basically, the film after the first hour was basically just Charlie killing everyone, and it felt sort of out of place from the movie. But the first hour was brilliant, it was suspenseful, it was chilling, and it was almost well paced. The film is about a group of backpackers who decide to go camping at Charlie's Farm, a place where there was a whole lot of murders. One of the backpackers tell the story of Charlie's Farm, and about how Charlie became a killer. After that, the campers stay at a field for the night and camp their, and the next day they go searching for Charlie's Farm. They then find it, and go exploring around it.At night, while most of the campers are sleeping, one camper wakes up and see's a shadowed figure, which is supposed to be Charlie. Ever since that, people just start getting killed, and everyone dies.Sounds lousy, right? Believe me, after the first hour, it really is. However, I recommend you go watch it because the first hour was gold.6.3/10!


I have watched hundreds of horror movies and I can tell you that this film is very predictable. When I finished watching this I felt as if it could have been much better than it actually was. The actors were fine if nothing else, annoying characters. I could not wait for donkey to die and when he did I predicted the penis being removed by the giant blade wielded by "charlie". Every single death was lovely and Gory.I do love the nod to Kane Hodders other character "Jason" from Of Friday The Thirteenth series. Is that you Jason..yup I approve of that. I even approve the seeming nod to House Of A Thousand Corpses. Giant knife wielding maniac son of "Otis" from The Devil's Rejects jumping on a car and shattering it while someone helpless can seem to only scream.The female characters were so freaking typical. Let us perpetuate the dumb blonde archetype by pandering to audiences. Tara Reid's performance was just fine. It was the constant barrage of the obvious oh this is stupid, oh I have a bad feeling, oh you are an asshole this is so stupid etc etc ad nauseum. My advice....try again because this was not my favorite film. Personally I have an urge to go back and watch Jason vs Freddy.


Mean yes, maybe a little but this movie had potential if it had an actress that could actually move when the action is happening. From her sad ass whimpering to her heroin addict looking legs it almost made watching every scene she was in more painful then the girl under the tractor. Really when she jumped off the cattle ramp i thought she was going to break both her legs and was that shot in slow motion because it looked realllly slow to me. besides her i thought this was a decent hill billy slasher, its no wrong turn mind you, but it is enjoyable. i would have given it a solid 5 but the addition of maybe i should invest in a tread climber brings the score down to 4.


'Ozploitation' films can be very good. Both 'Wolf Creek' and its sequel set a very high standard for the genre. 'Charlie's Farm' unfortunately was a complete miss. The main problem with it lies in the dialogue. Almost every line is written so poorly that it becomes incredibly distracting and overpowers anything else going on in the film. The acting is also immensely poor. Tara Reid is the only cast member that can act (and you know you're in trouble when you're saying that).The one thing this had going for it were the creative kills near the end. After an immensely poor opening scene that lacked any creativity whatsoever, I was pleasantly surprised at the way the kill scenes later on were written. That was really the only redeeming factor the film had however. The writing was poor, the direction was poor, the acting was poor and the score was exceedingly poor, often completely missing what could otherwise have been a successful scare. Not much to see here.
