It's 1973 and young Steven is having a hard time from problems at his home in Pennsylvania due to his mother and father's tempestuous relationship with each other. In a bid to protect Steven from emotional turmoil and to allow themselves time to rebuild their marriage, his parents send him off to spend time with his grandparents on their farm which he soon finds is no longer a safe haven. In a moment of curiosity, Steven talks a walk into the high, expansive corn field but is given a fright when he discovers the body of a dead woman. He tells his grandparents who don't believe him at first, and he is approached by some unsavoury characters when he is briefly left alone in the car. Soon, the family become the victims of some terrifying disturbances at their home caused by some hidden perpetrators that use the corn fields as a hiding place and Steven begins to realise that he has less to fear from the dead than the living.
This chilling thriller viewed through the eyes of a child is allegedly based on the real events of writer Harrison Smith's childhood when he was a witness of some unnerving and unexplained happenings on his grandparent's farm. His screenwriting debut is directed by partners Tom Mattera and David Mazzoni ('The 4th Dimension') in their second movie project together. 'The Field' will be released on DVD on August 27th 2012.
