DVD Review: The Fields

24 August 2012 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The Fields

Stars: Joshua Ormond, Cloris Leachman, Tara Reid, Brian Anthony Wilson, Karen Ludwig, Faust Checho, Miles Williams | Written by Harrison Smith | Directed by Tom Mattera, David Mazzoni

At the end of the sixties America was rocked by the Tate-labianca murders and the resulting trials of the Manson Family. It was an attack from the younger generation on the establishment, those evil “hippies” had attacked America where it thought it was safe and people looked on in fear as Manson enjoyed the television time he got and the “Manson Girls” smiled and laughed at the crowds, almost believing they were invincible, it shocked many and scared them. The Fields is a film that uses this as the background for events that affect a small boy and his grandparents in a farmhouse surrounded by fields of corn.

Cloris Leachman Steals the Show in the Eerie Horror "The Fields"

15 May 2012 4:12 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Tom Mattera and David Mazzoni’s film about dark things happening to a young boy and his older relatives living on a farm never really manages to spook its audience beyond its creation of an eerie atmosphere, but it does succeed tremendously on one front. Much like television’s comedy Raising Hope, The Fields reminds us exactly why Cloris Leachman has won an Oscar, numerous Emmy Awards, and many others: she gets lost in her characters so effortlessly that she can make everyone else in a production look like chumps. Along with child star Joshua Ormond, Leachman does her best to fill out the moody dramatic horror, and they do well enough to keep things interesting, but the plot retreads horror elements that have been overused as of late without adding anything new.

Tara Reid and Cloris Leachman! Together! At Last! The Fields is Coming to DVD!

29 March 2012 9:22 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Each and every night for as long as I can remember, I have asked God and the little baby Jesus to craft a motion picture experience that combines the talents of award-winning actress Cloris Leachman with the empty-headedness of Tara Reid. My prayers, it would seem, have finally been answered. Below you’ll find a trailer for the upcoming supernatural thriller “The Fields”, a film which, according to directors Tom Mattera and Dave Mazzoni, is based on actual events. Yeah, right. I wouldn’t put too much stock into that claim if I were you. Here’s what they’re claiming is the real deal: The film takes place in a small Pennsylvania town in 1973, and tells the story of a young boy (Joshua Ormond) and his family (Tara Reid, Faust Checho, Cloris Leachman) as they are terrorized by an unseen presence in the surrounding fields. As a young boy, »

There is Something Lurking in The Fields: A Movie Review

14 March 2012 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a screener of this film was provided by Breaking Glass Pictures.

Directors: Tom Mattera, and David Mazzoni.

Writer: Harrison Smith.

Cast: Tara Reid, Cloris Leachman and Brian Anthony Wilson.

Horror films and films in general have been set in cornfields for generations. From the original Children of the Corn (1984) to Jeepers Creepers II (2003) and more recently in The Maze (2011), cornfields can fill the viewer with dread. There is just no way to find your way out once in head height stalks. In The Fields, the cornfields host a supernatural force whose purpose is both malicious and purposeful. The one chosen to resolve this tension is Steven (Joshua Ormond) and with a 10 year old character leading the charge, you just never know what is real and what is imagination.

The story begins with the protagonist Steven and his bickering parents. There are stresses involving infidelity and violence with Steven »
