The Harvest Review (2015)


The Review (Spoiler Free)

First of all, I think it is really over reaching when categorize this movie as a horror. I would categorize as a mystery drama. The movie does have big surprise ending. But in the middle of the movie, I was able to somewhat guess what is going to happen at the end.

The story is about a young girl, Maryann who moves in with her grandparents after she’s orphaned. She befriend a neighboring sick bed-ridden boy, despite the outright disapproval of his mother. But she keep seeing this boy anyway.  That is when she slowly discover series of secrets in the house.

I was bit disappointed with the ending because it was bit anti-climatic. But the movie got my attention because I wanted to find out what was going to happen to each characters. What really drives the movie is the acting. The acting was pretty good and the crazy mom played by Samantha Morton was very convincing.

Acting and Directing

Like I said before, acting is very good specially the main actors, Samantha Morton and Michael Shannon.  Rest of the casts includes Natasha Calis, Charlie Tahan, and Meadow Williams.  Also Peter Fonda is in this movie.

The Harvest is directed by John McNaughton who is credit for directing many popular TV shows.

In the Nutshell

Despite what other says about the movie, I did enjoy this movie. I give 4 out of 5 stars.
