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.
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.
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.
