Storyline

Harvesters is an action-packed thriller about a small-time gang of misfits led by lesbian Gulf War veteran Frankie Falzone. After she thrashes a redneck at a strip club, she and her gang move on to a small town where they rob a liquor store and kill the clerk. When their car conks out, they carjack a young woman and force her to take them to her family's home - located off the beaten path deep in the woods. Meanwhile, two U.S. marshals are hot on the tails of the gang. When the marshals track the gang to the home of Herbert and Betty Peelman, the real horror begins. Harvesters is a classic tale of two evils clashing in a life-and-death struggle for survival. Who lives and who dies? Joe Bob Briggs, in his nationally syndicated column, 'Joe Bob Goes to the Drive-In,' said that Harvesters has...parallels to the great twisted backwoods families of film history, a la Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Motel Hell."

Best Worst Movie Ever
27 January 2002 | by (Fredericksburg,Virginia) – See all my reviews

You will enjoy every cheesey second of this cinemagraphic tour-de-force! This movie has the best blood bath scene ever! Joe Ripple not only directs this masterpiece but also has a costarring role as a U.S. Marshal. There are special effects that you won't believe as well as an incredible surprise ending that will leave you stupified. Wake up if you don't have a DVD player and go get one today, because the special edition of this one of a kind film has a 30 minute documentary filled with interesting facts about the making of The Harveters, something I assure you, should not be missed! Lucas beware, CGI has a new master and it's name is Time Warp Films.
