For over 5 years Claire has worked with the brilliant, noble prize winning, Dr. Henry Kellenberg. Together they were working on a cure for Werner Syndrome, a follow up to Dr. Kellenberg’s somatic cell breakthrough. But while that was happening, Dr. Kellenberg was dealing with a son, Oliver, and found himself a new bridge in Elizabeth. A young woman whose curiosity gets the best of her. Leading to the very private Dr. Kellenberg, as seen by his isolated home, to having to punish her. One whack at a time. All the while, for reasons never dived into, I think, Claire turned the other cheek. Be it because of the research or other reasons. Leaving us to wonder, could Elizabeth ever escape?

I Want Spoilers

Question(s) Left Unanswered

  1. Why did Claire stay, considering what Dr. Kellenberg was doing? I’m sure he paid her enough to make up for how disgraced her name was.
  2. Um, so did Claire have heart issues or did Henry, maybe Oliver, do something to her?

Collected Quote(s) or .Gifs

The only measure of an action is its consequence.

We’re not the prize, we’re the bait.

On The Fence

While No Idea Feels Fresh, It Is Still Entertaining

Like most films nowadays, the trailer doesn’t so much hint but gives away the best parts of the movie. And while the film adds spoiler to the film, story-wise, nothing pops. Then, in terms of performance? While very much a fan of Gugino and Hinds, they do as they always do in B-Grade movies. They give you enough so you can’t blame them for how you feel about the movie, but don’t necessarily take it to the next level either.

I will say though, even with them not upping this movie and the film not pushing boundaries or taking paths not already well-tread, it’s enjoyable. It has a few jump scares, if you are heavily into female nudity, it has that, and also quite a bit of violence.

Overall: Mixed (Divisive)

This film is not going to win any awards or be the go-to for anyone’s filmography. It’s interesting, for sure, but it also has this vibe that it should have been a Netflix original. That is, in the sense that while $7.00 isn’t much, considering you get 100s of movies for a few dollars more, this doesn’t seem worth it. Yet, if you are a fan of Gutierrez’s work, you do see some growth in his work.

Leading to why the mixed label. While uninspiring and very middle of the road, almost generic in a way, there remains something likable about Elizabeth Harvest. Be it the consistency we always get from Hinds and Gugino or just watching Lee struggle with understanding her character’s purpose and watching her attempts to escape. There is something there which may not tip the scale but does make this enjoyable enough to check out.
