Dark Harvest (2023, D: David Slade) S: Reaser, Davies, Kirby, Likes, Crutchfield



In a cursed town, the annual harvest becomes a brutal battle for survival. On Halloween 1963, Sawtooth Jack, a terrifying legend, rises from the cornfields, threatening the town’s children. Groups of boys unite to defeat the murderous scarecrow before midnight. Richie, a rebellious outcast, joins the run, motivated by his brother’s previous victory. As the hunt progresses, Richie makes a shocking discovery and faces a pivotal choice to break the relentless cycle.

Dark Harvest releases in theaters for one night only at Alamo Drafthouse Theaters October 11 before heading to Digital on Friday, October 13.

This is out on VOD tomorrow. After years of directing TV, this is Slade's first full feature since 2010 (...and that was a Twilight film)!

Not knowing anything about this film, the trailer played before the new Exorcist over the weekend at Alamo (the special screening date had already passed) and I was instantly intrigued. Last night I downloaded the novel and will read it first. But I'm really jazzed about renting the adaptation soon.

I'm going to re-read the book before renting this. It's been years since I've picked it up but I remember it being a very quick read.

Decent gore, but a really dumb story and some very flat characters. Kind of a weird B-movie choice for a comeback by Slade.

This doesn't look all that great to me, I removed it from my watchlist.

Watched last night & thought it was pretty impressive. The cinematography was gorgeous for a horror movie & it had just the right Halloween vibe. The story was kind of The Outsiders meets The Purge, but it really scratched that itch for exactly the kind of horror movie I want to watch this time of year.
