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.Read more ›
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.

I watched all three in this series and even though the first was not great it was the best of them all. The 2nd was the worst. Don't waste your time or money.Published on August 24, 2011 by D on Movies
Poorly-lit, excruciatingly-composed, badly-acted, and edited with a hacksaw and duct tape. The most remarkable thing about DH2 is that, somehow, the filmmakers managed to squeeze... Read morePublished on October 8, 2009 by DrakeScott
Dark Harvest 2 is a tragic example of what can happen when someone has a cheap camcorder, a bad idea, no talent and too much free time. Read morePublished on July 13, 2009 by Sacred Dust

Alright! This was just stupid. It has some dad looking for his daughters in a maze cornfield. That's basically what it shows through the whole movie. Read morePublished on December 28, 2007 by Rebecca L. Bartels
