What a waste of time!
1 November 2011 | by byrotiSee all my reviews

You've all read the others reviews and I concur so all I wanted to do was warn anyone who is thinking about hiring this....DON'T!

It's gotta be one of the most boring "horror" movies I've ever seen. I was assuming after looking at the cover and it's R ( in Australia) rating that there'd be a bit of gore and excitement.

I saw all of the After Dark titles on the shelf and assumed they'd be good. With Fertile Ground I was wrong.

Neither. So I don't know how it got it's rating of R. There was about as much gore or anything! Snoozefest! Pity because the actors tried or did well. The plot was just far too pedestrian.
