Trivia

Natasha mentions that Jason owns a "Halloween Hockey mask". He corrects her by telling her that it is a limited edition Friday the 13th Jason Voorhees mask. Kane Hodder, who plays Tony Stewart in the film, has portrayed Jason Voorhees in the past. This is also an allusion to the Halloween movies, which started the slasher movie craze of the 80's. Jason Voorhees is a rip off of Michael Myers, the antagonist of the Halloween franchise, which is why Natasha mixes them up, as they are so similar. See more »

Quotes

Mick: Charles Manson is walking through the forest with this guy. And this guy turns to him and says, "Dude, this is one scary forest." Charles turns to him and says, "Shutup, man! I'm the one who's gotta walk outta here on my own!"

You know, I'm awaiting something that can really show us, what this new and talented director can bring to the table. CF is a really well made film, and the first of Sun's to hit cinema. After almost scarring and scaring us with the overindulgence, and in one sense, brilliance of Daddy's little girl, CF is too much of what we've seen before in other horrors. There are some truly, repulsive and nasty moments in the early half, again with violence so overdone, it's laughable and unbelievable. The opening music score, and opening credit sequence was awesome, where even here, there are familiarities. The early part, where Charlie's cannibalistic parents, are killed by townsfolk in retribution for eating all of the missing employees, is very Texas Chainsaw Masssacre'st, chiefly as in the last TC, but the others in the resurrected franchise. Little Charlie of course survived and is believed to be possibly lurking around. You know how these urban legends and campfire tales ensue. You been to horror school. Now Charlie, a seven foot guy, built like a brick s..thouse wants revenge, and gets it. There wasn't much suspense here I found with this frightener pic, chiefly, because you could tell the moment, each victim, was gonna buy it, and where, especially one couple in a lake, where the male party, a real gross out guy, is deprived of his donkey d..k. I spotted their demise here a mile off. They're part of a foursome. Two hotties + one not bad looking guy, plus gross out guy, who has possibly scored with hottie Alina Jacques. Watching Tara Reid, yeah the main star? near the start, sunbathe in a black bra and bikini was arousing, and genuinely they're were some good performances, but the gross guy was very good. Another couple who we don't care much about, tag along later in the film, as if desperate attempt to add more suspense, gore, or duration. The grueling finale was quite intense which had me again, familiarizing myself with the nearing of the Friday 13th remake. On the whole, the film isn't badly shot, some scenes of our inner outback, wonderfully and beautifully captured, with some nice slow zoom in shots. Sun just has to now get serious and bring something of higher quality to the cinema screen. Charlie's Farm fails on the basis of not being original where we've been there too much, and seen too much of that before. Again I drawer heavy reference to the catalyst in the last TC.
