When this shot on VHS feature hit video stores in 1987, the box cover carried the tagline "Old McDonald had a farm... Ei Ei Ouch!" Yeah, that's about as clever as Splatter Farm gets. August 14 is the release date for the latest entry in Camp Motion Pictures' Retro 80s Horror Collection, but I think the day would be better spent balancing your check book, laminating the cat, or pretty much anything other than buying this DVD. Don't get me wrong, this one's got enthusiasm and it makes some gutsy moves (in every sense of the term), but the directionless story and the use of non-actors -- especially Marion Costly as a necrophilic senior citizen -- makes for a painful viewing experience.
