Quite a surprise...
15 June 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

The movie "Fertile Ground" took me by surprise. I had not heard about it prior to picking it up, so when I found out it was an After Dark horror series movie, I was pleasantly surprised, because they usually put out some nice movies.

"Fertile Ground" does not deliver any groundbreaking new storyline, everything here has been seen before. But still it worked out quite well, as it was nicely composed and put together. The storyline, shortly summarized, is: Nate and Emily Weaver are living in the city and expecting a child, when they suffer an unfortunate miscarriage. To start over, they move to an old house in a rural setting. It turns out that they have an unknown relation to the story of the house, and things start to turn dark and dire...

The movie builds up a lot of suspense and there is always something just lurking below the surface, which is good, because it makes you want to see more and know more. There is also a good amount of thrills and scenes that make you jump in your seat.

As for the acting in the movie, well it was mostly people I hadn't seen before, or at least can't remember having seen before. And the movie is mainly carried by Leisha Hailey (playing Emily Weaver). The people in the movie all did good jobs with their roles and their acting.

Having seen the movie now, and read some reviews here and there, I don't really understand why people shoot this movie down, because I found it to be a good horror movie. It has all the necessary ingredients to make a good horror movie. Despite it being nothing new and innovating, the movie has a good plot, good shocks and a good pace. If you like horror movies, then check out "Fertile Ground".
