5.0 out of 5 stars Great, low-budget demonic gem!!! October 28, 2004
By mizziah
Format:DVD
It always bugs me when someone knocks an obviously low-budget film for its shortcomings. Sure, the production values and the acting don't have that Hollywood polish, but that's what I find amazing about films like this. It's great to see someone apply craftsmanship to a project with mininal resources and overcome those obstacles with creativity. I think that's why Eric Stanze is held in such high regard among most fans of independent films. He makes great movies with very little money, and although this flick isn't as solid as ICE FROM THE SUN or SCRAPBOOK, SAVAGE HARVEST has a lot to offer to the indie horror fan.

The story is nothing new (it can be seen as an EVIL DEAD knock-off), but Stanze creates a nice backstory to the slaughter, which he captures with some very inventive camerawork. The makeup effects are surpisingly well-done (great work by Tony Bridges), and the performances are solid (when you consider that he's working with non-professional actors). Even the music score offers something different from the norm (i.e. - a blaring heavy metal soundtrack) in modern horror films, which I found very effective.

Looking back over the several flicks that Stanze has done (from ICE FROM THE SUN to CHINA WHITE SERPENTINE), it's nice to see how he's progressed as a filmmaker. Fans of Stanze should check this baby out to see where it all started, as well as those looking for something a little bit different. If you're down with the indie scene (and I'm not talking about the Miramax, mutli-million dollar type of indie film), you may find a lot to like about this early Stanze effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome Splatter-Fun! September 6, 2005
Format:DVD
This is a great movie if you love gore FX. It is a little slow with the backstory early on, but when the night scenes come the sh;t hits the fan! Everybody's getting possesed, tearing each other apart, and trying to survive till morning comes.

All the actors were fun to watch, with all the stuff that was done to them in the story. The extras on the DVD are cool. The behind the scenes video especially. These guys are real grass-roots horror fans. Awesome bloody FX!!

5.0 out of 5 stars fun December 1, 2005
Format:DVD
For any old school horror fans out there you do not want to miss this movie. I liked the story of this movie. It was different. Not just some evil spirits, but something with a little more history to it. The fx in this were just sooo much fun. I enjoyed this movie very much. To me the more bllod the better. I woul say anyone who wants to sit down and watch a good old horror flick this movie is it.

Format:VHS Tape
This one should likely please fans of Evil Dead-style horror who don't mind the micro budget.
A group of teenagers (don't all horror movie plots start like that?) go down to a girl's uncle's lakeside house for the weekend to help clear out an old storage shed. The uncle tells the kids some old Indian folklore about the Trail of Tears, and shows them some rocks that a recent flood has just washed up. The rocks have strange markings on them, and they supposedly contain demonic spirits that can possess the living only if a descendent of the Cherokee elder comes onto the land. Since none of them are Cherokee, they have nothing to worry about, right?
Yeah, uh-huh. Right.
As soon as night falls, they'll each be struggling to survive against their fang-spouting friends who suddenly have an appetite for human flesh. And even though we've seen dozens of flicks like this one before, this one outshines many of its bigger budgeted peers in terms of pure style and fun. You get all the flesh-eating, throat-ripping, screwdriver-stabbing, chainsaw-roaring entertainment you could possibly want -- all in a nice, efficient micro-budget package.
Yes, Savage Harvest even has some effective scares in store. Writer-director Eric Stanze obviously knows his craft, and he gives us some very creative camerawork to boot. Stylish and extremely well-directed, Savage Harvest boasts some cool gore effects as well. The effects are even more impressive considering the shoestring budget. Even the soundtrack, with songs by St. Louis pop-folk-rock band Hotel Faux Pas, is great.
I only wish the characters had been more than cardboard cutouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-awakening the Dead... November 30, 2005
Format:DVD
As the trend to re-release older titles heightens, Eric Stanze (SCRAPBOOK, ICE FROM THE SUN) gets another Special Edition release through Image Entertainment in this tenth anniversary edition of Savage Harvest. As Savage Harvest was Wicked Pixel Cinema and Eric Stanze's first major motion picture, this movie does show some of the beginnings of independent movie-makers, however, with a great story and good special effects, Savage Harvest holds up well over many viewings. With this special edition, you get needed remastering plus a handful of good special features. Also on the DVD is the first look at the preview for the upcoming Savage Harvest 2:October Blood which will hopefully be out sometime next year. If you enjoy some good blood and guts fun, re-awaken the dead and pick up this re-release of a gorey classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent December 2, 2005
Format:DVD
I have to applaude the efforts of the creator's of this movie. First, the special effects had the quality of a large budget production made even today.

The story line was very interesting and unique and the kills are as gruesome as they could be.

I know this movie was made with heart so anyone interested in starting a career in independant cinema should check this out. It holds an influencial spark for young movie maker's like myself. It's also fun to watch with a group of people as most classic style horror films are.
