Did You Know?

Another day was almost shut down when the lead actor, Lester, was falling in a coma because of diabetic problems which he was forget telling the production company. They had to call the police which was good for another reason: The locals of a trailer park didn't really appreciate the presence of the movie crew filming there, after the police came by they where quiet.See more »
Continuity: When Judy gets into the truck, the window is up, but when she's driving away and the scarecrow jumps on the back of the truck the second time, the window is down so he can reach in after her.See more »

If it just had better acting, filming, casting, and story, 6 April 2005

Don't get me wrong, the plot has been used many times. Guy comes back from dead for revenge. Plain, simple, nice. However, this is done rather poorly. The gore is okay, but other than that it sucks. The cast is WAY too old to be high school students, there was really no reason as to why lester went into the scarecrow besides "this place is evil", and the choreography is downright laughable. I mean, there is a part when a person needs to reach for a gas can and, oh my!, it's right next to her in the passenger seat! why? I don't know. In my opinion they should have different people redo the film. They need a more natural sounding script and better editing. It truly had potential. The character of the scarecrow was never scary, every kill had a pun. Not that comedy is bad, but he should have been more stealthy. I can babble on incoherently or you can take my advice, avoid spending ANY money on this film.
