Oozy mutant cow babies just aren't enough.

The setting and events are unusual and obscure, and many of the details of the murky story are not provided, but there is still enough to produce a suspenseful tale.

And if I could change ONE thing about this movie, it would be how it ended.

I went blind into `Isolation'. I must've read reviews on it before since I put it in my wish list, but I didn't remember anything about it. Honestly, I thought it was a Asian black haired horror movie because of the cover of the DVD. Then when I read the back (after already having ordered it), I was quite intrigued, but still thought it was gonna be another `so-so' movie.

To say the least, I was very surprised with this movie. Talk about a throw back to good horror. First off this movie doesn't treat you as a dummy. It assumes you can understand what is going unlike Hollywood who has to explain EVERYTHING nowadays. I absolutely loved that because it makes the movie seem more real, even though it's a monster movie. Second, the atmosphere was unbelievable. Another great throwback. The setting, the scenery, the lighting... all reminded me of some old great movies such as The Thing and Alien. I felt cold and wet. I could smell the cow manure. I could sense the feeling of being alone. And then there were the special effects. NO CG THANK GOD. Finally a movie goes back to the way a monster movie should be made. And it looked ever so real. The gore that was used was nicely and realistically done. The characters themselves were great also. Once again the movie doesn't tell you everything. And you know what, this is a horror/monster movie. Not a drama. I don't need to be told exactly what's going on these peoples lives. Just a little history and I'm good. And that's what is done here. We have our farmer (we find out that he used to be with the vet), our vet (who works for the scientist and MIGHT be involved with him), the scientist (who is crazy, or mad, or a genius), and two lovers (an interracial couple whose on the run from the girls brothers because her family doesn't like the guy).

Something has gone horribly wrong at the farm. Some shady scientists perform some fertility tests on a cow. And there are some disastrous results, to say the least.
Isolation is a unique, terifying little gem. I am very suprised this is relatively unknown. Everything is done exceptionally well--acting, pacing, script, effects--it all adds up to an entertaining, frightful good time for any serious horror fan.
(You popcorn horror fans stay away) 4.5 stars

As a previous reviewer has mentioned, there have been some pretty good offerings in the horror genre from Britain [The Descent]and yes, Ireland recently and Isolation is definitely worth a watch. The setting is a rural farm somewhere in Ireland I presume, and the cast of characters [human that is] is made up of Farmer Dan, a female vet, a scientist, and a young couple, Jamie and Mary [who are on the run from Mary's disapproving brothers]. The premise: the farm is the setting for a biogenetics experiment, and a cow births a genetically mutated calf...the rest of the story deals with the repercussions of this event. Though the plot seems rather simple, the story moves at a steady but suspenseful pace and the stalking of the prey [the humans & other cows on the farm] by the predator makes for compelling and scary viewing. Though there is some allusions to other movies like Alien, The Fly etc...I still found it to be quite an enjoyable and intelligent sci-fi horror flick that is worth a watch. The acting was credible and the effects sufficient in evoking a menacing atmosphere.

"Isolation" is one of the most riveting and frightening horror movies of the year, and one that retains a very real, believable air to it as it changes in tone from a kind of 'quiet' horror to a faster-paced, more apocalyptic tone. With movies like this one, it's hard to know how much to say: on the one hand, you want to give people enough to go on, on the other hand there's a lot to be said for going into this kind of film without too much foreknowledge. Starting off with a description of the opening acts should be safe.

The setting is an isolated farm in rural Ireland where special attention is being payed to a pair of pregnant cows. A lone man lives at the farm, but two scientists are dropping by regularly to check on the bovines, the result of some kind of deal the farm-owner seems to be wavering toward regretting. A pair of young lovers in a beat-up old van who seem to be on the run from something and have chosen the general vicinity of that farm as a place to lay low for awhile, also enter the movie at an early point and end up caught in the events that are about to take place. One night, the farm-owner is alone when one of the cows begins to give birth, a birthing about to go horribly awry.

The movie is in no rush to get to the mayhem, and builds with a pace that I guess could be compared to that of "Alien" or "The Descent". Very strong acting and excellent characterization do a lot to propel the story, and the interaction between different characters, even (in a nice touch) extending to the human characters and the farm animals. The guy who runs the farm, for example, starts off seeming rather curt and nonsociable, but he keeps slipping and showing a concerned, softer side toward the movie's other players, including the animals.
