Storyline

The family man farmer John Rollins is stressed with his financial situation: the crows and the lack of irrigation are destroying his crop of corn; the bank is near closure of his mortgage; he does not have credit to fix the water pump or to buy seeds; and his marriage is in crisis and his wife Mary is giving too much attention to her friend Tommy. When John accidentally discovers a hidden compartment in the barn, he finds a creepy scarecrow but his son Michael makes him promise to destroy it. However, his neighbor Jude Weatherby visits him, gives a six-pack of beer to the abstemious John and convinces him to put the scarecrow in the cornfield. Out of the blue, the life of John changes: the crows die; the pump works again irrigating the land; and the banker responsible for the closure has an accident and dies. However, he feels that his land is possessed by something evil that is threatening his beloved family. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The first 'Messengers' was to be this story, where a man was influenced by a scarecrow, and was to be called 'The Scarecrow'. The end result of the first film ended up being a completely different story, with a different screenwriter given the writer's credit, with Todd Farmer receiving a 'story by' credit. Todd Farmer penned 'Messengers 2' and was this time given full credit as writer. See more »

Decent horror flick
23 July 2009 | by (Oklahoma, US) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge horror fan, and I tend to watch most dvds I can get my hands on.

This straight to DVD "prequel" of the original film should please most horror fans. It's not a great movie, and you'll likely forget it not long after watching, but it's entertaining enough if your expectations are low.

It has good acting and a big-budget look. I didn't know much about the plot going in, so some of the twists towards the end were a little unexpected for me. It doesn't have much at all to do with the original Messengers.

The plot is a little goofy. But I think it gives this B movie some of its charm.
