Not a typical Australian horror.
17 December 2001 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Frenchman's Farm" is actually more a mystery than horror.The plot centres around mysterious ghost seen on Frenchman's Farm.Two students try to discover a treasure buried somewhere near the Farm.The film is very well-made,the script is really original and interesting,the acting is fine.There are several truly creepy scenes-the scare factor is rather high and the film doesn't rely on gore.So if you like old-fashioned horror and good mystery check out this forgotten chiller from Australia.Recommended!
