Fertile Ground is one that was released by After Dark Originals. So that means that it is something special, something on his own. When Fertile Ground starts you will be surprised to see some nudity from the first second. But don't think it's gratuitous, it do adds to the film. I don't really know where to place it because it is a slow builder with not that much of horror in it. It's all about having a miscarriage and the influence it has towards the couple. They decide to move to another place which belongs to the husbands family. There the woman is confronted with the past via a ghost. Slowly she's becoming mad and think it's all in her mind because she had that miscarriage and is again pregnant. But is it? As I said before there isn't that much of horror it's more a ghost story with towards the final part of this flick some cruelty. So you really have to dig a lot of talking before things go awry. Nevertheless, it never bored me due the excellent performances by the couple. If you like for example The Others and stuff like that than this is your piece of cake. Luckily no CGI was used (except for a hand appearing on a window) for effects which adds towards the flick.
