Though perhaps not worthy of classic status, William Wesley's Scarecrows recalls some epic 1980s-era slasher films, with its liberal blood gushing and semi-New Wave art and costume design. Set in a haunted cornfield, a group of military criminals are stranded after trying to escape to Mexico with $3 million in stolen cash. Dressed in Terminator or Alien-like solider of fortune gear, the group combs the dark field while sporting headphones and night goggles, lending the many shots from their points of view an eerie, green glow. While Roxanne (Kristina Sanborn) guards a hostage, other team members Corbin (Ted Vernon), Jack (Richard Vidan), and Curry (Michael David Simms), each die at the hands of murderous scarecrows coming to life after stepping off their crosses. Great shadowy segments show the scarecrows' burlap masks undulating slightly due their zombie breathing. It doesn't quite matter that the viewer never learns why these scarecrows seek revenge on the living, because the most fascinating and disturbing scenes occur when the dead soldiers return to their friends in attempts to trick them into an unholy alliance. In the first grisly sequence of this sort, one recoils to discover a man whose innards have been replaced with money. Worse, his friends cut him up to extract some blood-soaked cash. As body parts fly, blood puddles up, and zombies face the camera up-close, Scarecrows looks increasingly like Hellraiser, though it lacks a needle-poked, iconic anti-hero. Scarecrows' slow pacing is frustrating but 80s horror fans will be all too willing to excuse some corny plot digressions for a glimpse of truly stylized nightmare. —Trinie Dalton

Customer Reviews

I would give 'Scarecrows' a 2 star rating and I think that is being generous.
Stephen M. Greene
I like the way that it's not all explained away and resolved with a neat, but boring, ending.
Music Lover.
The acting is great for its budget, and you will actually like the characters.

Five armed commandos steal three million dollars and takes a pilot and his daughter hostage as they are forced to fly to Mexico. One of the robbers betrays them by parachuting the crate of loot over a cornfield somewhere and they make a landing in the field to search for it, there's alot of eerie scarecrows surrounding the area that makes the place seem even creepier at night. But what they don't know is that the farm area is cursed and the Scarecrows are possessed by supernatural forces as they start to turn the night into hell, can the robbers with the pilot and his daughter make it out alive or will end up being stuffed by the creepy straw-carriers?

Action-packed and scary supernatural horror thriller with atmosphere and splatter abound! the acting is quite average but the make-up and Scarecrow effects are great for it's time. This movie was a tiny success in some theaters but became a lost gem of the 80's horror genre as it became a cult classic of sorts with some fans such as a me, i highly recommend seeing out this suspensful and scary flick.

This DVD has good picture and sound with the unrated version but it's got no trailers or extras at all, but that's all right because what matters is that it's finally on DVD and uncut as well.

A real, good, absorbing, creepy horror movie. Just the way I like them!
No silly attempts at injecting humour into it, which ruins so many horror movies today, but loaded with menace and atmosphere, and so what if the story itself is a bit preposterous? (Spirits of three long dead people living on by inhabiting scarecrows) It works! And that is the main thing.
The main premise of the plot is a group of robbers hijack a small plane and force the pilot and his daughter and their dog, to fly them away, but one robber bales out with the money and the rest go after him, and that's where the real story begins. I like the way that it's not all explained away and resolved with a neat, but boring, ending. The ending is great and most satisfactory. A must-see for all those who like a more in-depth horror movie with no real clear cut distinction between goodies and baddies and not one favoured over the other by the spooky and unnatural forces at work.
When I first watched it years ago, it was on a very dark vhs tape recording, seeing it on dvd for the first time (I have the region one version) was a revelation.
Great to see some of these old much loved movies getting dvd releases now.

Fantastic lost horror gem of the 80's finally gets its due on DVD! Previously only available on beat-up VHS tape or an overpriced full-screen German import titled Paratrooper, MGM has blessed the horror masses with a definitive version for our collections! The movie has a refreshingly original plot, which drops a group of ex-military robbers and murderers into the wrong field in search of their missing bounty. A great unique script and really good acting (except the pilots daughter who is AWFUL) always makes me wonder why this film sat in obscurity for so long? Although our main characters are all villians they have individual personalities and believable dialogue that keeps us interested in them and their plight. Of course atmosphere, jump scares, and a generous and well done amount of gore is also included for our viewing pleasure (including a brutal face stabbing)! If you are new to horror or are a horror buff starving for a truly enjoyable horror film (especially in these times of remakes and direct-to-DVD dreck) this is a can't miss. Also make sure to pick up MGMs upcoming releases of the 80's classics From Beyond and The Burning. For horror fans... Christmas comes early this year!

This is just how a horror film should be made. The fact that the 'Scream' series is known to just about everyone and this film is known by virtually no one shows what an unjust world this is. [sob]

I first saw it about 15 years ago when i was 14, it left a big impression on me and i always used to check video shows when i was browsing to see if it was available. It never was of course, and then along came amazon...

If you think that a horror film should be about special effects and gore then you should probably leave this film alone. If you think that atmosphere, setting, excellent acting performances (esp. from the guy who plays Curry) and a good story makes a horror film then i strongly suggest you invest some money in this film, you won't be disappointed.

Have to say my favourite bit is when the Scarecrows kill Bert and you suddenly realise that the voices that sound like the other hijackers taunting him are actually coming from the Scarecrows themselves.

"Put the gun down Bert, you're not going to hurt us."

Just a brilliant film.
