Product Description

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.

Review

" THE FALLOW FIELD is a handsome, thrilling and strange movie." --John Landis (American Werewolf in London, The Blues Brothers)

"rich, dark, scary, mind-bending fantasy that is as fascinating as it is disturbing...one of the most original and unnerving indie horrors I have seen." --MJ Simpson (Leading UK Genre Journalist)

" THE FALLOW FIELD is a sterling addition to the growing crop of intelligent British horror films." --The Zone

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior British indie horror 28 July 2012
Leigh Dovey's debut "The Fallow Field" is a reminder that British horror is very much alive and kicking. It is also a film that needs to be seen by many - but to review it in too much depth would give away the delicious plot twists. For a film shot on a tight budget the end result easily competes with films with far more to spend. It is also fresh to see a film where characters and dialogue are central to the filmmaker - I hope that the horror buffs of today, fattened on a diet of Saw and Hostel films can give this the time it so rightly deserves. The film deals with an unlikely pairing of Matt (Steve Garry), a man prone to blackouts and amnesia who finds himself dumped by both his partner and mistress because of his erratic behaviour, and Calham (Michael Dacre) - the menacing farmer with a brutal and possibly tragic history. Michael Dacre is compelling as Calham, oozing both evil and dark humour as the cat and mouse element of the film unfolds. Matt seeks answers for his blackouts, and through a strong sense of deja-vu ends up at Calham's farm. In a pivotal scene Dovey has the two central characters alone in a barn - here again it is left to the dialogue and the actors to carry the directors vision of evil forward. Indeed much of the film relies upon the strength of the two lead actors. The isolation - even in the sweeping landscapes of Surrey - of the farm and farmer stand-out, as do the themes of mother-nature and death. I should also mention how the camera-work, direction and particularly the music all combine to carry the audience along with a growing sense of unease and suspense. The soundtrack makes evocative use of ticking machinery and other natural things such as boiling water to match our own heartbeat. Let's hope that when this gets the release it has long deserved early in 2013 that others will find it. It's a grower....

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see for fans of Brithish Horror 28 May 2013

For those, like myself, who grew up watching things like The Wickerman, Hammer House of Horror and the supernatural drama and folk horror shows that the BBC and ITV used to excel at in the 70's then The Fallow Field ticks all the boxes for those who crave that kind of uniquely British horror fix.

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.
