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…

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 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.

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 I Love This Type of Horror Movie February 25, 2011
Format:DVD
"Husk" was almost a perfect storm for me when it comes to a horror film:

1. I love "rural" horror films. From Crystal Lake to Gatlin, Nebraska, films set in deserted, desolate areas.
2. Scarecrows - From "Dark Night of the Scarecrow" to "Scarecrows" to the opening of "Jeepers Creepers 2", I've always been fond and frightened of these cornfield denizens.
3. Basic Premise - One of the things I hated about 1990's horror films through today, is the need for "plot" or complicated stories. Who needs it? Give me a bunch of people stuck somewhere with something trying to kill them.
4. Good F/X - And when I say good F/X, I mean the Tom Savini type of laytex meets red corn syrup type of effects. CGI has ruined many b-movies, often coming off worse than seeing a guy in a rubber suit with a zipper up the back.

"Husk" does a great job in all of these departments. The setting is a simply run down farmhouse in the middle of a giant corn field. Of course the corn field is populated by plenty of creepy scarecrows, and you can't get a more simplistic plot than five people driving to a lake for a weekend getaway, and getting stuck in this middle-of-nowhere scarecrow infested haunted farm fighting for their lives. While not a gorefest by any stretch, "Husk" does utilize good old fashioned F/X when it comes a few nasty scenes. And whoever created the look of the scarecrows definately earned their paychecks as the things are serious nightmare fuel. The only drawback for me was the ambiguous ending.

That said, if you are a fan of fun little b-movie horror films, you'll enjoy "Husk". It's nice to know they are still making fun little chillers like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needed fleshing out of story but otherwise good August 13, 2011
By Viva
Format:DVD
Okay,

the farm boys depicted only in weird visions had a falling out? It wasn't clear, since the father was the meaner one, not the older brother, who did not deserve the fate inflicted on him by the younger one.

Then, in the present day, the avenging spirit is somehow still around and seeking vengeance on anyone, in this case a group of hapless travelers. How does one of them manage to see the visions mentioned earlier? We will never know.

Aside from that, this is creepily shot in an Iowa cornfield, and the makeup and effects are quite good, along with the acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way more than zombie scarecrows!! September 17, 2012
Format:DVD
I admit,having shrunk to the level of no expectations for lower budget horror flicks in general, and furthermore also knowing i likely was setting myself up for another crushing disappointment from After Dark films/SyFy channel features, I had no expectations for this film whatsoever. So,I was quite surprised to find it turn somewhat quickly into not only a decent horror presentation, but I also actually got SCARED AND CREEPED OUT more than a couple times, and for me,that's saying a lot! The subgenre of haunted/killer scarecrows is not for everyone,but if you get spooked by that concept or even are frightened by cornfields or creepy old houses, DEFINITELY check this out. Within the first half hour you've got realistic gore effects, solid directing and very good performances from practically unknown actors. By mid-way you've got nice twists & no played out plotting. During a time when it seems there aren't that many good directors/writers out there that seem to know how to give a fright these days,I found this movie to be refreshingly spooky. All the people behind this movie deserve a pat on the back. It's way more than zombie scarecrows, tho' that should a good enough reason for at least half of the people reading this review to give it a chance :) Not only was this effort professionally completed by a great film crew/good stunt people, I thought it was inventive and scary and as i said definitely GAVE ME A FEW JUMPS! The make up effects were great! The story could benefit a tad more by having had a few extra minutes to explain a few odds and ends, but that by no means takes the thrill and creepiness out of this movie. It was pretty damn good. And to the people that say this movie had bad camera work or too many loopholes, I dare you to do better. Stop griping,I thought this was great; i havent seen a good quality scarecrow movie since Scarecrows (1988)! I truly enjoyed Husk and would watch again and will recommend to friends. Looking forward to more from Brett Simmons!
