The Harvesting (2015)
Review by Michael Mahoney

5 / 10
Well, The Harvesting didn't yield all that much, truth be told.

In it, two tales are told, which dovetail near the end, being 1) an Amish teenager must battle the anger he feels after going through a tragedy and 2) a couple nearing divorce take their children to the country in an attempt to save their marriage. The main focus is the second story, which doesn't help much as it was a slow, plodding story of increased annoyance and anger growing between the family members. In a way, it almost feels like a low quality Burnt Offerings (1976), the way family members are slowly becoming more and more unstable. Throw in a few Amish ghosts and an unspeakable evil force that pulls those who are angry toward it and you get The Harvesting.

It wasn't a great film at all. Honestly, the first hour did next to nothing for me, and the ending only made it better due to a twist which, ignoring everything else, was actually pretty fun. But as decent as the final twenty minutes were, it wasn't worth sitting through the first hour to get there. And on that topic, the final scene of the film made no sense whatsoever. Nowhere in the film was an ending like what was implied suggested. *sigh* Overall, this is a slow film with not much to offer save an interesting twist. There's little to no gore, no outstanding actors, and little to remember. The story itself wasn't that shabby, but it wasn't done right. I wouldn't recommend the Harvesting - it's in the lower class crop of film. :P 5.5/10 (rounded down to 5/10 to fit site's format).
