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 »
I didn't have any expectations going in to this flick and have never really been interested in scarecrow horror but thought I'd give it a try. I have to say I really liked this movie. No it's not a block-buster or anything but lately I've realised that is actually a GOOD thing more often than not. The acting is great, production is fine. There are a couple of flaws but nothing worth moaning on about and I liked that the characters behaviour wasn't too stupid. Also a lot of stereotypes were avoided so the flick had a fresh feel to it. The one female character (played by Tammin Sursock) was excellent, both the character & the actor and I also liked the guy she was initially having issues with (Chris?). Some things needed better explanation and the ending was a bit lame (there really wasn't any logic behind the big collapse & not being able to speak thing - or if there was it was too easy to miss) but still a decent scary flick with old skool flavour. Not too gory and some nice jump scares as well as well crafted creepiness. Also, reading some of these reviews - particularly the negative ones, it seems to me that either people didn't actually watch it OR they skimmed through missing out bits because many of them have their facts wrong LOL. Trust me, this isn't a masterpiece but it's definitely worth a rent. It's one of the better ones. I've given it a 7 to help boost it's rating as I believe it's undeservedly low. It's probably really a 5 - 6 pointer tho.
