Factual errors: When the kids are trying to hot-wire the truck, every time the engine turns over the headlights and parking lights light up, then they go out when the engine stops; that's backwards. If the lights were on at all, the load of the starter motor turning the engine over would dim them.See more »

Scarecrow-children of the Corn!, 26 April 2012
Author: Coventry from the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls

Okay, so "Husk" may not necessarily be the most intelligent or innovative horror flick in history, but I do shamelessly admit that I found it vastly entertaining! Why is that? For simple reasons, actually. First and foremost because it's a straightforward and incredibly fast-paced little film that doesn't waste any time on overlong introductions. I think it takes approximately, what, two or three minutes before the action and horror aspects kick in and the film remains eventful until the very last moments. I, for one, really appreciated that writer/director Brett Simmons didn't waste our time (and his own) on redundant character drawings, because they're mainly all just insufferable twenty-something idiots that are about to die in gruesome circumstances anyway. Secondly because, when the subject matter is handled right, scarecrows can be the scariest monsters in the horror genre. Admittedly it must be rather difficult for a scriptwriter to link a decent and plausible story to lifeless puppets made out of straw and discarded clothes, but the image of a scarecrow in the middle of a desolate field at night is so genuinely creepy! The background story that Brett Simmons gave to his scarecrows isn't exactly brilliant, but it's a neat attempt and you got to admit that they look mighty frightening. On their way to a secluded party, four high-school buddies and one supplementary girlfriend crash their car because – inexplicably – a whole swarm of kamikaze crows hammer themselves into the windshield. Across the cornfield, full of eerie scarecrows, they notice a ramshackle farmhouse and the two most courageous ones of the bunch head over there for help, as Johnny mysteriously vanished after the accident. The scarecrows come to life and there's seemingly no way to escape the cornfield. During their quest for survival, Scott gradually uncovers the horrible secret of the living scarecrows through unexplained supernatural visions. Yes indeed, the plot is full of holes, improbabilities and questions that remain unanswered. Quite frankly, this is one of those rare occasions where it didn't bother me too much, as "Husk" provides plentiful of creepy imagery, gore, atmosphere and adrenalin. Simmons makes the most out of a clearly shoestring budget and, most astounding of all, the cast of youngsters is actually very adequate. Director Simmons generates occasional moments of sheer suspense, while the players truly manage to appear terrified and desperate. And, perhaps just because the film didn't waste any initial time on fake and overlong introductions, the characters gradually even become amiable and identifiable. I think I can say for myself that I know horror… "Husk" is horror. And warmly recommended to all fans of the genre.
