The Farmer is a 2018 New Finlandic indie horror short film written, directed and created by Zarel Smith.[1] It is Smith's second independent film, after Layers, which was released only two weeks earlier. The film was distributed by Zfilms in later releases. The film stars Smith as a farmer, who goes to take care of a friend's farm, where a burglar breaks into the house. The film was made as a homage to silent horror films of the 1920s and silent films in general – particularly German film director F. W. Murnau's 1922 Nosferatu – after Smith became inspired upon learning about them at his film school in Surrey, UK.
