Savage Harvest (1994)

Directors: Eric Stanze
Genre: Independent/Horror

"Only bloodshed, violence, and terror now grow in these darkened fields...And tonight, the harvest begins.

Years ago, a Cherokee elder summoned into our world an evil that eventually destroyed his entire tribe. Now, on the land that was once inhabited by the tribe, demonic forces await the return of this long dead Cherokee elder. When these demons sense the arrival of the elder's descendent, they gain the ability to possess human beings. Demonic possession consumes one victim after another as showers of blood drench the earth and shrieks of pain echo throughout the forest. The possessed are animalistic, frenzied killing machines, feeding on the warm meat of fresh kills!" - from DVD Pacific

My oppinion:
Eric Stanze's first movie is a very low budget, Evil-Dead look alike that works quite well. The plot is decent enough considering it's his first movie. The same could be said about the acting, which of course isn't good, but when considering this was probably the first time many of them was on film, I was rather impressed. The special effects were also nice. I only know Stanze's work through "Scrapbook" which is one of the most shocking movies ever made in my opinion. Savage harvest is nothing like that. It's just pure low budget horror fun! All in all, it's a pretty decent effort that fans of indie cinema should be able to enjoy!

My rating:
