Monday Home Video: Charlie's Farm (2014)

A bad start to a new series. Wait, what?

Starting up a new posting series this year. ^^

The idea of this new series came from a past conversation I had with my friends on some of movies we watched and enjoyed. After listing many good movies (the ones that I would definitely recommend in Sunday Movie Theater), plus perhaps two or three cups of coffee too many, we started talking about some of the mediocre movies that we actually liked. ^^ We were joking and laughing at how bad those movies are, but we watched them and did genuinely enjoyed ourselves when doing so. ^^ As such, I think it's my duty to the human race to make mention of those movies through this segment. XD

Good movies, watch them in a movie theater when you are free on a weekend - Sunday Movie Theater; bad movies, watch them at home during the weekdays so that if you get bored to sleep by them, you're safely in your own house, hence "Monday Home Video" is set as the segment's title. XD

At the moment, I'm planning to have one posting each from Sunday Movie Theater and Monday Home Video each month - for balance between good and not-so-good movies. XD However, if having two movie-related postings each month becomes too much for the blog, posting just one from either series each month is an option as well.

Having introduce the idea behind this new posting series, it's time to actually talk about the movie that has the "honor" of being the first to be featured in Monday Home Video. XD

Not picking on this movie with deliberate intention - I just watched it recently so the fresh memory prompted me to immediate talk about it. ^^

"Charlie's Farm", a 2014 movie directed by Chris Sun. Technical movie details can be seen on IMDB, while the entire story is up on the movie's Wikipedia page.

An Australian production in the teen slasher genre that features way too many clichés with plot points and characters that are totally predictable. ^^; Having Americans cast members including muscleman Nathan Jones, Kane "Jason Voorhees" Hodder, Bill Moseley who is no stranger in many weird, gory movies and the lovely Tara Reid is very much a gimmick of the movie instead of helping it to be remarkable in any way. It's just a mediocre teen slasher at best in my opinion. ^^

Given the blood and gore department actually did a fairly decent job in showcasing the handiwork of Charlie in the movie, I should be kinder with my comments, but after seeing Tara Reid in Ugg boots in a couple of scenes, well, ...

... Yes, they deserve to die, and I hope they burn in hell! ^^
