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.

Equal parts zombie film and slasher film, "Scarecrows" is an ambitious and creepy horror movie that finally gets the attention it deserves. Shout Factory has given William Weseley's debut shocker a fine HD remaster, a step above the DVD from MGM in both visual and audio presentation.
The reason I warranted this BD release as a worthy upgrade from the MGM DVD was the inclusion of extra features; an informative an interestesting pair of commentary tracks with cast and crew members, as well as a stills gallery and an on camera interview with the Special Effects artist responsible for the scarecrows and gore.
Shout Factory's "Scream Factory" subdivision, coupled with Red Shirt Productions (interview documentary), sure hit the ball out' the park with this release!

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!

I first saw this ultra creepy horror movie when it first posted to VHS in the late 80s and was thouroughly impressed. The movie also exudes not only a sense of latent terror however also, an aura of despair. Imagine a world of perpetual night, being stalked by a presense from beyond the grave and realizing there is no way out for the wrongdoer or worse yet, having died and in hell for all eternity. One thing sure, having grown up in the midwest, I will never step foot in a cornfield again at night.

I Pre-Ordered this from Shout/Scream factory and I recommend picking this up. This is a great creepy and dark horror film, it's the uncut and unrated version so the extra gore scenes are intact. Video quality is top notch, lots of extras including 2 commentaries and 2 interviews with the make up special effects and one of the actors. We are really lucky to even get this on blu ray so guys pick this up and help support it's release.

<strong>Scarecrows</strong> (William Wesley, 1988)

An above-average supernatural slasher that has achieved cult status since its 1988 release, <em>Scarecrows</em> has found new life with the proliferation of video streaming services; you can stream it online at both Netflix and Amazon these days, and probably others.

Plot: five marines--Corbin (prizefighter Ted Vernon), Curry (<em>X-Men 2</em>'s Michael David Simms), Jack (<em>Terminator 2</em>'s Richard Vidan), Bert (<em>Night Angel</em>'s B. J. Turner), and Roxanne (Kristina Sanborn in her only screen role to date)--hijack a plane containing the entire payroll for Camp Pendleton (I'm not sure what it was in 1988, but today, Pendleton has a population of about 100,000; that's a lotta scratch), kidnapping the pilot and his daughter, intending to fly to Mexico. Well, you know how these things go, and they end up having to abandon ship over a creepy cemetery on a farm owned by the Fowler family, who are a few bricks shy of a load, and have a pretty effective system for keeping people off the property--undead who masquerade as scarecrows. Once the marines are on the ground, it's all about survival horror.

To be fair, it could've been <em>more</em> about survival horror. Marines vs. zombies? How much fun could we have with that? Wesley makes it into a pretty straight supernatural slasher, and I reiterate that for a supernatural slasher it's not a bad movie at all, effective and tense and loads of fun. Wesley, who (as of this writing) has directed only one other feature, the 2001 Lou Diamond Phillips vehicle <em>Route 666</em>, had some interesting ideas and enough competence to pull them off. It's my fault, not the movie's, that I was looking for a steel cage match between Rambo and Bill Hinzman. Worth checking out, if you've never seen it and you're a fan of the genre. *** ½
