Like one long boring history lesson ......
15 April 2012 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Oh boy is this BAD. 'Frenchman's Farm" is an Australian supposed supernatural, suspense thriller. What it really is, is one long boring history lesson. To make matters worse the Australian dialects are difficult to deal with. Two young law students investigate a forty year old murder, revealed through a time warp. Their investigation consists of interminable walking around a farm, a graveyard, and other countryside attractions, trying to piece together what happened. After 86 minutes of watching this nonsense, you the viewer will rightfully conclude that you have just witnessed a poorly acted, poorly scripted, poorly edited, BAD film. - MERK
