Actor Ted Vernon hated director William Wesley, as Vernon felt that Wesley was wasting money for the budget. When the film was half done, Wesley said to Vernon that he needed more money for the budget, Ted replied no, he had given him $300,000 for the film, that was enough. Wesley found the rest of the budget from the father of his girlfriend, and co-producer, Cami Winikoff. When the film was almost done, Wesley said to Vernon that would he give an executive producer credit to his girlfriend's father. Ted became furious and grabbed Wesley's neck and yelled "I'm the executive producer, you credit me or I'll kill you". See more »

The best non-zombie horror discovery I've ever made
"Scarecrows" is great. The action starts immediately and doesn't let up; the atmosphere is dark and creepy; the special effects are good. But best of all is the fact that the plot retains a sense of mystery. The only people on the farm are the bandits trying to retrieve their money. There aren't any crotchety old crones who relate the supernatural history of the farm via soft-focus flashback, the way so many movies do. No. Instead we are given a few clues as the bandits explore the farmhouse, and that's it. We see a photo of the farmers. We wonder where are they now; what happened to them. But that's all. There's too much creepiness going on to worry about the past. There's too much creepiness going on to remain on the farm. Forget the money. And that's part of the fun too--shouting at the television screen, trying to convince the characters to get the hell out of there.
This movie is fun, bizarre, and the supernaturally inexplicable unfoldings will freak you out.
