1.0 out of 5 stars This movie made me hate corn. January 13, 2006
Dear God, when will I ever learn? I love no-budget horror movies but you have to draw the line somewhere. Dark Harvest 2 is somewhere behind that line, hidden by other gems like, well, every movie ever released by The Asylum. As far as a review I can't say much that hasn't already been said. The director's attempts at "establishing" a scene are enough to make Gandhi come back to life and immediately kill himself. Here's a hint to the director -- the sound of a little girl screaming is in the Top 5 of Most Annoying Things Ever so to stick a camera on a 9-year old girl and tell her to scream for 5 minutes is a crime against nature, no matter how many camera angles you use. And how can a psychic look at a footprint in the mud and have a psychic premonition OF A FOOTPRINT IN THE MUD??!?!?! What the hell does that even mean? For the love of God, just stop it. I hope you don't get any ideas about making another movie like "Wheat: Legend of the Cereal Killer." I know that was corny but what do you expect, the ENTIRE movie takes place in a freakin' cornfield.

1.0 out of 5 stars A- MAIZE-ingly Bad! December 27, 2005
Well, shuck me sideways. I haven't seen a home movie this bad since the abysmal 13 SECONDS or HALF CASTE. Someone should take away this guy's Sony Handycam! This movie proves that just because you can make a movie on your camcorder for $20, doesn't necessarily mean you should.

I remember that one of the things that Robert Rodriguez wrote in his book, "Rebel Without a Crew" was that when you set out to make a no budget feature, you have to use whatever assets you have at your disposal. Rodriguez says that you should take an inventory of all the locations and props that you can beg, steal and borrow from your friends. Robert Rodriquez was friends with the Mayor of some town in Mexico, so the Mayor let him shoot all over for free. What you got in EL MARIACHI was a movie that looked like it cost much more than the actual budget.

I'm sure that the director of this movie has a copy of that book, and he took that advice to heart. In this case, he was apparently friends with a guy who owned a cornfield where they put on a haunted house every year. Seems like a pretty good location for a scary movie, but it's hard to keep a cornfield interesting for 90 minutes. Not a single installment of the CHILDREN OF THE CORN series spent more than a few minutes in the cornfield. Hitchcock only spent about ten minutes in one in NORTH BY NORTHWEST. Take a hint, fella... cornfields don't make for riveting cinema. It would have been good if the director would have had more friends with more locations, because this thing gets pretty tedious after the first 15 minutes. This movie looks like it cost about $30. (or whatever it cost in admission to the cornfield maze).

Apparently he couldn't even find anyone to act in his movie, so he cast himself. Big mistake.

1.0 out of 5 stars I hope Cowell reads this. November 26, 2005
I was actually thinking about writing Mr. Cowell a letter but this will have to do. If there was an award for worst movie ever written, this one would win hands down. I laughed through all of it. It looks to me as though you were given a camcorder for your birthday and you decided to make a movie. A low budget is no excuss for something this bad. I don't just blame you, your editor needs to take a little more time figuring when to stop showing so much corn.

Don't even compare this movie to the Blair Witch project. That one had something going for it. I can see you spent more money on the cover of the DVD then in the making of the film. I think it's sleezy what you did, "Trying to hop on the back of what-ever success Harvest Moon 1 made." and showing a scare-crow on the cover and having no such thing in the actual movie.

I'd be ashamed to be apart of that movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful.... February 23, 2006
By S.M.
As a owner of the first Dark Harvest film which I thought was merely a OK film, I was anxious to see Dark Harvest 2 thinking maybe it would be a better movie than the first. Wrong!!!!!!! This movie was terrible from beginning to end! A cheap attempt to make a horror movie. This movie gives you the effect that an amateur with a hand held cheap video camera walked around filming this movie. The acting was horrible and so was the plot. It made no sense at all and after 15 minutes, I was tempted to stop watching but out of curiousity, I suffered through the whole movie. You get sick of seeing this man searching for 2 girls lost in a corn maze. I'm very glad that I only rented this movie and didn't buy it. It would have been a terrible waste of money!! If you are curious about this movie, please rent it first even though the $4 to rent it is too much!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Let's Walk in Circles in the Corn November 9, 2005
By Goofra
Basically, that is the premise of this movie. My husband and I thought we would at least get a little of the excitement we got watching the first Dark Harvest movie. He fell asleep within the first 18 minutes. I continued to watch thinking that it had to get better. You know how some movies start out slow but steadily gain momentum. That didn't happen with this movie. This is the only movie I have ever watched that actually beat my all-time, most disappointing movie ever, choice (Blair Witch Project). Like a previous reviewer stated, "It really is that bad." No plot, no script, no acting (my Chow could have done a better job than the people cast in this movie). So if you really must spend your money, go rent Blair Witch Project, you'll have more fun with it than you ever will with this piece of junk. That is, unless of course you enjoy walking through a corn field in endless circles searching for two little girls who must be deaf as stone posts since they are only two or three rows away and can't seem to here their father calling them, which he does periodically. Too bad I have to give this movie a 1 star. It actually deserved a -5 stars for being so monstrously bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring. Not worth a rental. Not even worth watching for free.
You can read the other reviews of this film. I have nothing to add, but wanted to cast my vote for terrible. Wish I had read them before renting.
