The Fields

The Fields
Release Date: 4/24/2012
98 Minutes
Directed by: Tom Mattera, David Mazzoni
This story takes place in the countryside of Pennsylvania where the corn fields seem to harbor some sort evil. Steven is sent to stay with his grand parents on their farm while his parents Bonnie and Barry try to sort out their marital problems- basically she wants to party and run around on him and he ain't having it!
 
Around the same time Steven is headed to the farm the infamous Manson murders have just occurred. it becomes an obsession to Steven that Manson will escape and hunt him down to kill him. One look at Charlie on the news scared the death out of that boy and that horrible face became imprinted in his mind.
His grandparents love having him but repeatedly warn him to stay out of those cornfields- so of course we all know what Steven's going to do right? Run into those damn dry husked fields and sees way more than he bargained for. He manages to make it out and suddenly strange occurrences start to happen in the house.
Each night is more intense then the next....is it spirits from the cornfield? Or could it be for some reason Mr. Manson himself would like to pay the little boy a nice visit? Will his parents ever work it out and be able to move on from the past? Cloris Leachman was a gem in this one, she reminded of my grandmother.
