Angus Valley Farms


Picture: C-     Sound: C-     Extras: D     Feature: D



No matter how bad an idea is, if it was a commercial success at any time, someone will try to revisit it and “do it right” or “better” or the like.  One of the worst ever was The Blair Witch Project, which got very, very lucky and is one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated on the public.  Angus Valley Farms is also shot on tape and thinks it is the smart version of the former, but is just so amazingly naïve about how dumb the idea was in the first place that it becomes just as bad.  At least not as many people will see it.


The 1.78 X 1 letterboxed image is bad, shot on tape and has all kinds of color and detail trouble, compounded by silly effects that try to make the video look like warn film.  We’ve seen better on Saturday Night Live.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is also surprisingly shrill, dreadful & weak and fortunately, there extras like trailers and two featurettes are pointless.  Skip this one.
