#21. Isolation - Review

Isolation posterIsolation is a really bizarre movie. It is kind of amazing to me that it even got made. It is a horror movie; about cows . . . Did I let that sit long enough? That’s the short version. The long version is there is a farmer who is in a bad way, so for a couple of bucks he allows a (mad) scientist to conduct some experiments on one of his cows. The scientist hopes to be able to genetically manipulate the gestation period of cows, believing this would lead to more births. Well, as in any good horror flick, it all goes wrong. What we are then left with is the scariest movie to ever be made about farm animals. It should be noted that this is not a comedy like 2008’s Black Sheep.

Although this movie moves a little too slow for my taste, it has a couple of unrelentingly frightening scenes that make it worth seeing. Without too many spoilers, I will say I was stunned throughout the birthing scene. It is grotesque, heartbreaking, and most definitely horrifying. The entire birth lasts about 10 minutes or so, and I am pretty sure I didn’t exhale for the duration of the bloody event. Also, Isolation has one of the greatest WTF moments I have witnessed in a while. I MUST TALK ABOUT THIS FILM WITH SOMEONE!! So please, check this film out on Netflix Watch Instantly or wherever else you can find it, and let me know what you think. This film will honestly be sticking with me for a while.
