Customer Reviews

Good story but be warned -- this is a very old movie.
S. Weiss
Walker portrays a farmer trying to both provide for his family and fend off maurauders bent on seizing his food stores and few animals.

First off, most everything Cookieman said in his review is true and I won't rehash what he had to say about this movie.

The first sentence for the description on the back of the DVD case for the film Deadly Harvest (1977) states the following `Cinematic changes have lead to a hungry planet.' Cinematic changes? I saw the film last night, and I'm betting they probably meant `climatic changes'...not a good sign... written by Martin Lager (The Starlost: The Beginning) and directed by Timothy Bond ("Star Trek: The Next Generation"), the film stars the immense Clint Walker (6' 6") who played the lead in the mid 50s television series "Cheyenne", along with appearing in a number of films including The Night of the Grizzly (1966), The Dirty Dozen (1967), and Pancho Villa (1972). Also appearing in this Canadian production is a young Kim Cattrall (Porky's, Police Academy), Nehemiah Persoff (Fate Is the Hunter), Geraint Wyn Davies ("Forever Knight"), Dawn Greenhalgh (The Virgin Suicides), David Brown (Rebound: The Legend of Earl 'The Goat' Manigault), and Jim Henshaw, who would later find his true calling writing episodes on such television series as "Friday the 13th", "War of the Worlds", and "La Femme Nikita", but will always be know to me as the voice of Bright Heart Raccoon from The Care Bears Movie (1985).

The film begins with an aerial shot of some snowy farmlands and ominous voiceover relating the precarious predicament man has gotten himself into by the end of the 70s (and I ain't talking about disco). Apparently industrial pollution, urban sprawl, unchecked population growth, and just poor planning in general have caused changes in the climate such that its snowing in the middle of summer, and the years harvest has gone the way of last years harvest...that's to say both are a wash...

Format: DVD
First a word about 'gray market' DVDs:
Often, transfers are not of the highest quality. The movies themselves are unrestored and rarely pristine (but still watchable), extras are non-existent and inclusion of artwork or liner notes varies by manufacturer. These niche companies can however provide a valuable outlet for product unavailable elsewhere.

Contrary to recent concerns over global warming, Canadian-made DEADLY HARVEST was created in an era when the fear was that Earth was rapidly COOLING. Its setting is the start of widespread famine caused by a too-brief summer and an overly-long, cruel winter.

Walker portrays a farmer trying to both provide for his family and fend off maurauders bent on seizing his food stores and few animals. Cattrall is Walker's daughter and Persoff plays a supply stockpiler who capitalizes on the misery and starvation of others. A bleak but fine concept is wasted here by poor scripting, subpar acting and a monochromatic visual palette. This one's well-deserving of a remake the next time it's determined the new Ice Age is upon us.

First off, most everything Cookieman said in his review is true and I won't rehash what he had to say about this movie. I'd just like to add that I thought this movie was entertaining without being "over the top" as many post-apocalyptic movies can get.

There are no biker-gangs in this film, no road warriors and no bizarre characters like you would normally find in this type genre.

The film has a sort of "this could really happen" kind of feel to it.

If economic collapse or a crop collapse were to occur, I could see this sort of scenario with city people raiding the country farmers playing out in this fashion.

This is not a great film, but I enjoyed it for what it is and I am giving it 3 stars. I think it covered the subject pretty well.

This movie is a bit frustrating, it's an excellent story but it's treatment is second rate, a B movie that should have been done with an A director and a better budget. Clint Walker is great as usual but he can't do it alone. The futuristic tale suffers from a feeling they didn't want to pay extras to fill out the landscape. A very young kim cattrall is average but shows her potential. The dvd quality is poor. But given that the story itself is very interesting and Walker's portrayal is very good.

Although made in the 70's it is still relevant for today. Lack of food and energy threatens the end of mankind. The result of man's industrial progress with no concern for the future generations. Will this be the future of mankind? Will we kill over the fight for food? I am a Clint Walker fan and I was not disappointed with this role. The film is a little grainy and the acting is not the best, but important issues that still face us makes you think. I enjoyed it very much.

I first saw this movie about ten years ago and it has stuck in my mind ever since. I finally purchased it and it was just as disturbing the second time around. It's a truly gripping story of life in the U.S. following a worldwide famine and societal collapse.
