Blu-ray Review: Scarecrows

17 June 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A film that I somehow missed while growing up, Scarecrows is a bit of an oddity in comparison to the rest of the ’80s horror genre landscape. Not a slasher movie nor a traditional monster movie, William Wesley’s directorial debut is part caper-gone-awry/part paranoia-fueled thriller and does a nice job of creating a palpable sense of tension even while contending with the constraints of a minuscule budget. It also ups the creep-out factor with some strikingly cool killer scarecrow designs and features some of the most incredible nighttime cinematography, as well. Scarecrows may be one of the more overlooked cult classics from the ’80s, but thankfully Scream Factory is here to finally show this deserving film some love with a great new Blu-ray release.

Scarecrows digs right into its story, picking up with an elite group of thieves as they’re escaping on a hijacked plane with their loot in tow. »
