When a murder of crows smash into their car windshield, a group of young friends are forced to abandon the vehicle, leaving them stranded beside a desolate cornfield. Hidden deep within the cornfield they find a crumbling farmhouse – but they soon discover that instead of a sanctuary, the house is actually the center of a terrifying supernatural ritual that they are about to become a part of…

4.0 out of 5 stars CEREAL KILLER April 16, 2011
Format:DVD
5 college kids ( 4 males, 1 female) are on their way to the lake for a little R&R. They are traveling on some back road through corn country when suddenly a group of crows opt to sign a suicide pact and crash into the windshield of the vehicle. In a situation such as that, the only logical choice is to drive your vehicle off the road into a ditch.

When the driver comes to, the passenger who was riding shotgun is gone. There is no phone reception. They do see a sign on the ground with Gen. 4:11 on it. This is a reference to the cursed ground caused by the spilling of Abel's blood. The writers failed to capitalize on the scripture by producing an earth tremor after each death or by having a phonograph which plays old sermons and starts by itself.

The cornfield is not planted in rows for easy access, but rather in a haphazard arrangement so college kids, who have no sense of direction, can easily get lost walking in a straight line.

There are a few things going on. The driver of the vehicle pulls out a knife and further disables it. The chess club guy has past visions of two brothers. There is a farm house surround by corn, where they think they can find safety and call for help. Guess how that works out.

No sex. No nudity. Blood, no real gore. Just scarecrows going bad. Good low budget horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creamed By The Corn March 30, 2011
Format:DVD
Husk was an enjoyable and original film.
Call it Night of The Living Scarecrows if you will.
There are some flashback scenes that explain why and how the events are taking place.
The explanation was no big revelation or anything groundbreaking but other than that it was fun and original.
If you like the idea of Zombie Scarecrows with nails hammered through their fingers as a weapon then you will like this.
Even though there wasn't non stop action I was still entertained,the acting was top notch and the story pulled me in.There were a few genuine scares as well,It had a very creepy somewhat old school feel to it.
There isn't any gore to speak of, but there is quite a bit of blood and slaughtering going on.That said, most of the gruesome details are left off camera and to your imagination.
I liked it and thought it better than I expected.
I wasn't fond of the abrupt ending but all in all a very good effort for this killer scarecrow flick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice sense of dread March 25, 2011
Format:DVD
This move looked great and had good special effects. The story was actually very surprising and I had low expectations for what turned out to be a good horror gem. I never write reviews and here i am excited to share this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars There's Something in the Corn Besides Crows August 10, 2011
Format:DVD
WOW! Was I ever surprised by this one! I'll start by saying that I HATE scarecrows--always have; always will. And when a group of teens wreck because their car is "attacked" by crows, they learn to hate them as well. What sets "Husk" apart from many movies of its genre is the direction, pacing, and acting--all of which are exceptional. The viewing audience isn't bored to death with some hackneyed back-story of a legend, and you don't have to endure yet another remake of "Children of the Corn." The scares happen in daylight, as well as darkness, and there's just a sinister air about this movie.

If more movie makers would just realize it doesn't take that much to scare the dickens out of people AND if you've got a script that's pretty tight, you'll have yourself a decent movie. I'm disappointed the movie did not receive any wider distribution, but I'm sure that's because of its pre-judged worth.

"Husk" gave me the willies and makes my viewing of all those other pieces of crap worth it because I finally found a true diamond in the rough. Very highly recommended.

There seems to be an endless and undeniable fascination with the cornfield as the setting for unspeakable terror. And the straw man has become something of an institution in creepy scares. I'm not sure when it happened or why, but these films now make up a sub-genre of the horror movie catalog. If you are looking for a presentation that brings a completely unique spin to the age old concept--"Husk" may not be your first choice in viewing entertainment. It is, however, a solidly constructed and surprisingly well acted entry in the field (the cornfield!). More concerned with establishing a malevolent mood, "Husk" works well enough as a suspense thriller which is sold by the actors involved. Note that I'm referencing it as a thriller, though, because this will not satisfy your bloodlust if you're looking for an all-out gore feast. Relatively mild in the splatter department, this works better as a character driven chiller.

Initially, we meet a carload of five young and attractive vacationers. A couple of minutes of banter is quickly interrupted by a splattering of crows on the windshield causing the car to end up in a ditch. As the friends awake from the collision, one of them seems to have wandered off. Before you can say "who's got a cell phone?" (no one apparently), the group sets off with two of the remaining four crossing the cornfield to locate the ominous looking house in the distance. Havoc ensues as mysterious forces in the grain begin to stalk (corn stalk) the interlopers. Something is killing people and it's turning them into murderous scarecrows! My favorite part of this scenario is that once someone has been drafted into the undead league, they must go to the house to stitch up their own after-death costume.
