Even gives the word crap a bad name
4 November 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Not since Vampegeddon a couple of weeks back, have I seen a movie with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Scarecrow Slayer is a truly abysmal movie that makes a waste of a decent idea. Even Nicole Kingston's sexiness can save it. It is very difficult to begin with a starting point, but I think I'll start with the acting. It is really atrocious, Tony Todd- who was brilliant in Candyman- is far too over-the-top but he still manages to be the best actor in the entire movie. Everybody else couldn't act if their life depended on it. In all fairness though, a lot of things hold them back. The characters are never developed and are little more than obnoxious stereotypes. They are also made to utter some of the most terrible dialogue I have ever heard in my life, every line is clichéd and has no believability to it. It also feels very cheesy and stilted. The story did have potential because of its idea but the result is completely unoriginal and the opening is overlong and too drawn out. The storytelling is really predictable with a lot of things that didn't make sense(how a bumblebee was suddenly able to work was just one of them). It also has no excitement or any kind of suspense or terror that rings true. True there are some really interesting ideas with the deaths, but it is wasted by the complete lack of any atmosphere. As well as some really hackneyed photography and editing that makes some of the action incomprehensible. And few movies I've seen recently have had special effects as awful as these, you are laughing at how stupid they look. And I am not just talking about the rival scarecrow. Overall, makes many other terrible movies look good, well and truly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. 0/10 Bethany Cox
