2011 was not a good year for 'After Dark Originals'!, 24 October 2011
Author: Hellmant from United States

'FERTILE GROUND': Two Stars (Out of Five) 2011 was not a very good year for 'After Dark Originals'! We got 'SCREAM OF THE BANSHEE' (one of the worst entries in the horror series ever) and we also got this. Three of the seven films were decent though (not too impressive but decent) and I have yet to see the other two (but I've heard they're pretty bad as well). This one is directed and co-written (along with Jace Anderson) by Adam Gierasch (the man behind another much better 'After Dark Original' from two years ago: 'AUTOPSY') and revolves around a pregnant woman being haunted by ghosts of the people who passed away in her home years earlier. It's pretty poorly made on all levels and is pretty much a waste of time for anyone, even if you're a horror film fanatic. Leisha Hailey stars as Emily Weaver, a happily pregnant woman who suffers a severe miscarriage as the film begins. She then moves out to a house she inherited in the country, with her husband Nate (Gale Harold), to get away from things. Once there she begins seeing things though, of the supernatural kind she believes. She tries to talk to her doctor and husband about it but they're both very dismissive about the subject, believing she's just over stressed. When she looks into the history of the house she learns that the people who lived there before her all died, as well as shared similarities to her and her husband. She then becomes more and more frantic as she must confront (what she believes are) the ghosts of the people who lived there before her alone. The movie is over acted, under written and severely misdirected. It's a shame considering Gierasch's last 'After Dark' entry was so enjoyable. This is just B movie trash and there's nothing fun or interesting about it. Parts of it are creepy and somewhat disturbing but not to a quality effect. The movie just feels poorly made. There's nothing really to like here at all. It's not nearly as bad as 'SCREAM OF THE BANSHEE' or a lot of other trashy low quality B horror films but it is pretty bad all the same.
