A priest comes to a small town to help get rid of a monster whose blood coagulates very fast. This creates problems as the monster is very hard to kill and then decides to go on a killing spree of its own.
Five people heist the Camp Pendleton payroll, kidnap a pilot and his daughter, who are forced to fly them to Mexico. Enroute a double cross has one of the thieves parachute with the loot into an abandoned graveyard surrounded by strange scarecrows. Two of the team jump after their loot and their former partner. Everything happens during the course of one very dark night. Written by

A couple creepy moments, some laughs, and a lot of killer scarecrows
A Joe Pesci look alike and his military friends rob and kidnap a father/daughter combo, escaping in a jet airplane. During flight, one of the robbers grabs the loot and parachutes onto a farm haunted by demonic scarecrows. They land, and it becomes obvious that the human characters here don't matter, scarecrows are the main draw.
It's super low-budget without showing too much, and the acting is very b-movie in an enjoyable way. Unfortunately, the story is just a set up to have guys with guns get sneakily picked off by alie.. I mean predato.. I mean scarecrows.
But the simple plot works through decent effects, competent direction, and the scarecrows themselves. (They're near invulnerable, wield knives, pitchforks, cleavers, and sew people full of leaves to make them into zombified slaves.)
There's some genuinely creepy moments and some laughable schlock. If you don't go in expecting much, this can be a fun ride.
