The story focuses on a couple who lives in San Diego. Chad and Scarlett are husband and wife venturing to start their lives anew in Seattle, Washington. They depart from San Diego after leaving all of their belongings to some friends and begin to head towards their destination. The reason for their sudden departure? Chad was recently involved with "loan sharks" and out of desperation the couple believes that moving far away will protect them from further harm from these "gangsters". Previous encounters with the "debt collectors" ended with violence, one encounter even leaving the pregnant Scarlett on the floor. As a result of the fall, Scarlett's baby is born with a disability (possibly Epilepsy) and faces seizures constantly. The audience knows that somehow the child has died, but the details aren't explained as of yet. The sudden death of the child had such an impact on the couple that it contributed as yet another reason why Chad and Scarlett decide to start their lives all over again.
Slowly after their departure, however, Chad falls asleep at the wheel during their drive to Seattle and the two of them are forced to seek shelter in a small farmhouse along the highway.Read more ›
But I'm glad I stuck with "Farmhouse." It takes a surprising U-turn, becoming more than exploitation, more than sensationalism.
You know how a couple of decades ago, starlets used to justify their on-camera nude scenes with the rote pretext that those scenes were "integral to the movie's plot." In this case though, the torture scenes really do turn out to be integral to the plot. And that plot turns out to be quite well-crafted. With almost old-fashioned attention to detail, all the loose ends get tied up. All the seeming little discrepancies that a viewer will probably just overlook along the way - get explained. This movie proves itself to be considerably better than the usual slap-dash slasher film being ground out.
The real shock in "Farmhouse" is the forewarning moral that the movie impresses the viewer with. So this is one gore-fest that you don't have to feel guilty about devoting 95 minutes of your life to watching.
I'm glad I did.It starts off like most torture porn movies, a couple get in an accident and seek shelter with a seemingly sweet couple in their "Farmhouse".All seems wonderful as the owners of the farmhouse Kelly Wu and Stephen Weber share wine from their vineyard a meal and offer accommodations to the unlucky couple for the night.
What happens from there is surprisingly original and has some very tense nail biting moments.The ending really took me by surprise and I'm usually not a big fan of mixing the supernatural with my Slashers but in this case it really works and gives this film that extra punch that kind of knocks the wind out of you..
The acting starts off a little shaky but it picks up and gets much better as Stephen Weber and Kelly Wu are put into the mix.It also shows what kind of damage you could do "in a pinch" with a Meat thermometer and a Cheese grater.All in all I thoroughly enjoyed it and give it 2 big thumbs up.

This is really a great horror movie; plenty of great torture scenes, grisly special effects, et cetera; but the real best thing about this movie is the ending. Read morePublished on April 22, 2014 by Chris Evans
This ended up being such a fun time. It went further than your average psycho thriller or horror. I would recommend fans pick this up or give it a rent.Published on October 24, 2013 by hphill
