Going in I figured this was probably a lower budgeted film. While that doesn't define my overall enjoyment of a film there are certain things one can usually expect. Many times those things can become a hindrance to viewing enjoyment. So, when the film started up I guessed right and almost shut it off just because I figured I was in for another one of those movies. Instead, I stuck with it and gave it a chance. I'm glad I did.
Return of the Scarecrow ended up being a lot of fun. It's very well shot, the sound was good and I found myself laughing quite a bit. There are some great character dynamics, especially between Wyatt and Vergil. This film is a great example of low budget filmmaking done right. They didn't try too hard to go outside their means, worked with what they had and made it happen. While ambition is a good thing, more often than not I think being too ambitious and not knowing when to work within your limitation hurts more than it helps. This film worked because it did seemingly operate within those the parameter of those limitations.
While this one won't be for everyone, if you're someone who can go in with an open mind, you'll more than likely find some enjoyment in this one.
