Editorial Reviews

Beth and Jacob have a normal life, a healthy son, and a farm with a secret: a field where nothing lives. Cattle that stray too near die. Townspeople disappear in the night. And every day the dead acre grows larger. Then one night, Beth and Jacob's infant son is taken from them. What follows is a frantic search for their child.

Actors are low key, giving a sense of realism.
Ellen Thompson
This movie should have been interesting, it was plugged by Fangoria as being a slow burning pot-boiler or something like that - but I just couldn't stay awake!

There is a patch of land on there farm that nothing grows on and Jacob's cattle die on, hence "The Empty Acre".

unlike these other reviewers who seem to have been nutured on graphic bloodshed, this is an effective lowbudget one of a kind horror film it is as much of a psychological as a physical horror a key reference point is the disturbed mother's fascination with alice in wonderland, as the monster takes people literally down the rabbit hole into an imaginary dimension and sucks their life force dry. the ending is truly disturbing. we need more of these brilliant indies and less of these sick torture porn and living dead flicks that inundate the horror field.

Fangoria gives there dvd of the month pick to The Empty Acre, writer/ director Patrick Rea's feature debut. The story is about an unhappy young married couple Beth and Jacob Nance who live with there 6month old son Michael on a farm somewhere in Kansas.

There is a patch of land on there farm that nothing grows on and Jacob's cattle die on, hence "The Empty Acre". One night there son Michael starts crying upstairs when Jacob goes to check on him he finds his crib empty. Beth and Jacob become more and more hostile and depressing as they try to find answers all the while more and more people start to go missing as it seems they are abducted from blackness that rises from this piece of land that nothing grows on.

I wanted to like this film and have liked others Fangoria has recommended however this one just didn't do it for me. For the first hour the camera goes back and forth back and forth, we see the acre, and darkness, then the acre and a plant will die on it, then the darkness creeps in, then some more of the acre over and over, just became repetitive with really nothing happening. Fangoria said the movie is atmospheric and eerie, empty fields, the dark, and woods in general are eerie and creepy if you were to put a surveillance camera on them for a night.

The cover also says " A Masterwork of suspense that brings back the concept of sinister" - Film threat. I really can't remember being on edge at all. A few nights ago I watched Vacancy and was completely shocked at how good it was, the beginning of that movie while there driving in there car your just waiting for something bad to happen. I don't know exactly what there doing with the camera to make me feel that way but I felt it and here I didn't.

This film reminded me of one of the better, older episodes of the X-Files where the mystery at the center of the story is ambiguous for much of the film. Is the baby crying in the field, or is it coyotes? Did an evil force steal the baby or is the mom hallucinating from the pills she takes? I found the whole thing to be pretty engaging.
