When explaining why the scarecrows did not attack them before, Scott says that, in chess, you can use a turn to promote your pawn. This is not accurate, since promoting can only be done once the pawn has reached all the way to the end of the board, not just by simply taking a turn. Scott, as a member of the chess team, should be well aware of this. See more »
Yes, as usual there are a few 10 star plants... BUT, I felt it was good Old School Horror
Okay, as the lead review stated, there ARE indeed a few obvious review 'Plants' here from the filmmakers. Usually that annoys me to no end! Maybe because I'm coming to review this film a bit later on it doesn't seem quite so egregious, but I see a number of negative reviews too.
First off, it is a SIMPLE, OLD SCHOOL Horror film. Second, and really think about this now... Just how many truly ***GOOD*** Scarecrow Horror films are there...??? Uh huh... NOT bloody many, right? This one did indeed remind me of 'SCARECROWS' (1988 - UNCUT) which is one of my very favourites and probably THE best Scarecrow Horror out there (not counting of course the Iconic 'DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW' telefilm  which takes THE prize as just about one of the very best Horror telefilms made) It is NOT any where NEAR as heavy and creepy as 'SCARECROWS' (that li'l B@stard lays out some SERIOUS and unrelenting mood - and it gives NO explanation either, except some old photographs of the family that had lived in the house long before) But, in a lighter, simpler way this film is very similar.
Yes, the movie is very simple; YES it is extremely low-budget, NO there is not a whole lot to the plot. BUT... And it is a VERY BIG BUT like Mariah Carreys, for WHAT it is I honestly feel that they did a very good job with it AND very importantly, there are not NEARLY as many awful and painful amateur moments with the acting, directing, etc. that you normally see a LOT with this kind of low-budget Indie film. The characters come across as decent (NO not academy material by a long shot, but in my lowly and wretched opinion FAR better than the usual horrible crap out there) So, if you are looking for extreme originality, forget it. If you are looking for extreme cleverness, nope... But, if you enjoy just a good ol' standard Old School, fun Horror film, then you should like it.
BTW, very nice touch with the 'sewing room'! I REALLY like little creative accents like that! : )
