Funny Trash-Slash Movie, 6 May 2005
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The friends Dave (Brett Erickson) and Karl (David Castro) are trying to join a fraternity in their college and they are assigned to bring a scarecrow from an isolated field. Meanwhile, Caleb Kilgore (Tony Todd), a deranged man who wrote several books about evil scarecrows, is being interviewed by a reporter nearby. Caleb sees the scarecrow falling over Dave and shoots with his gun, killing the student and somehow transferring his soul to the scarecrow. The scarecrow chases Dave's girlfriend, killing everybody around her, trying to bring her to the field to stay with him. "Scarecrow Slayer" has a horrible story, terrible screenplay, ham actors and actresses and dreadful direction. It is so ridiculous, that becomes a funny trash-slash movie. I laughed a lot with the story and the performance of the cast, highlight a certain David Castro, performing Karl. The guy is one of the worst actors I have ever seen, and his character is very suitable for the quality of his performance. The heroin, wearing shorts in the middle of a cold night, at least has beautiful legs. If you like very trash movies, do not miss this one. Otherwise, do not rent, buy or get close to this crap. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O Espantalho" ("The Scarecrow")
