More Drama than Horror
19 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Fields is a well made & acted atmospheric story. Despite a haunting box cover & description which advertises the film as a horror story, it is more of a boy's reflection on an incident which takes place on a farm where he is temporarily staying.

The movie takes place in the early 1970's when the Manson Family trial is all over the radio & television. Young Steven, who is living with his grandparents while his parents try to work out their marital woes, is curious about Manson & his followers. His curiosity turns to concern when he hears conversations about groups of hippies (who resemble Manson's followers) lurking in the area. He then discovers something terrible deep in the corn fields behind the house. Is the discovery a result of his imagination brought about by the current events of the time?

Thankfully for the audience, the threat turns out to be very real. Be prepared though: this movie is a slow burn. In fact, the boy's relationship with the grandparents (which takes up the bulk of the film) is actually more of a highlight than the action towards the movie's conclusion. Horror movie fans drawn in by the advertising art & description will have their patience tested with The Fields. It does emerge as a good story in the end though. Fans of this type of story are encouraged to seek out Paper House, which this film reminded me of.
