ROWS (2015/MVD Visual DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: D Film: C

David W. Warfield's Rows (2015) is a well shot and decently acted low budget gothic fantasy thriller inspired by Grimm's Fairy Tales. Starring Hannah Schick as Rose, a young woman who is working a summer job for her father's land development company, is tasked to deliver an eviction notice to a reclusive old woman living in a ramshackle farm house. The woman is an enchantress with strange powers who must preserve the old house, which holds the secret to her immortality.

The enchantress puts Rose under a spell and soon she finds the Old Woman Rose murdered her friend Greta. They go to bury the body, but become lost in a seemingly infinite cornfield and must repeat a series of surreal or terrifying events in order to solve the mystery and break the spell. The has some interesting ideas and comes off a little flat. The film also stars Lauren Lakis, Kenneth Hughes, and Joe Basile.

Presented on DVD in standard definition with a anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the film looks and sounds fine for the DVD format but could benefit to a Blu-ray upgrade. One of the highlights of the sound mix is the creepy score, which is very effective in many spots of the film.

No extras... unless you count Chapter Selection as an extra.

Rows is an interesting creepy little film if you are a fan of M. Night Shymalan-esque thrillers. Some moments have some iffy acting and direction but all in all, it plays off as a bizarre and creepy little tale.
