SYNOPSIS: " MEMENTO meets WOLF CREEK set against the backdrop of English harvest time"
THE FALLOW FIELD is one of the most original but twisted British horror films to be seen in years, and the debut feature from British filmmakers Leigh Dovey & Colin Arnold.
Not for the first time, amnesiac Matt Sadler (Steve Garry) awakes alone in the middle of a wilderness with no recollection of the past seven days. Finding his way home he discovers a life rapidly falling apart: his wife is convinced he s hiding an affair, the police are suspicious of his repeated disappearances and now he is plagued by terrifying nightmares when he closes his eyes.
As disturbing slithers of memory gradually return to Matt he retraces his steps to uncover his missing actions during the blackouts. Matt s search leads him out of the city and in to the countryside, to a remote farm owned by loner Calham (Michael Dacre). The cold farmer is suspicious of Matt but instantly sparks a dark sense of déjà vu in his visitor. But Calham turns on Matt, imprisoning and interrogating him, before forcing him on a terrible journey of abduction and slaughter to show the amnesiac the twisted games they used to play together. As Matt s fogged memory slowly begins to clear and he learns the two men share a violent history, the horrors of their past come skipping out of the darkness to greet them....
Genuinely dark and quintessentially English, The Fallow Field is a throwback to brutal horrors and thrillers made in the 70s. Capturing some of the genre s bleak tones and threat, its twisting plot, slowly building sense of dread as well as sudden shocks and visceral scenes make The Fallow Field a genuinely terrifying film.

The film can be a little confusing at the start but it’s not a gore fest horror, rather it’s more psychological as, like Matt, we try to figure it all out. The special effects are few and far between as the film relies on its music and natural sounds to add the atmosphere but the feelings of isolation and uncertainty add to the menace of the situation. There are some neat plot turns and the explanation is unexpected, but makes complete sense.
The disc itself opens to main menu offering play, scene selection and extras [commentary, trailer, slideshow and making of] and lacks any audio or subtitle choices. Filmed on a measly £9,000, this shows what can be done with a miniscule budget and for that alone deserves a star. With some scenes of mild sex and nudity [mainly male], some swearing, violence and psychological terror its an obvious 18 certificate, making this a good late night ***** view.
The cast, though small in number, all provide absolutely excellent performances and the storyline, although a tad confusing at first, provides enough mystery to be completely compelling and keep the viewer hooked.
Shots of the English countryside contrast with intimate, claustrophobic scenes of horror whilst the soundtrack (akin to something from the BBC radiophonic workshop) add the perfect accompaniment to this dark tale of isolation, sadism and supernatural mystery.
Those expecting a gore-fest might be disappointed, it's not that kind of movie, and special effects are minimal (although what there are are very effective) but for those of us who appreciate classic, intelligent horror then I can't recommend this highly enough.
