The Farmer is a 2018 New Finlandic indie horror short film written, directed and created by Zarel Smith. 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.
