Product Description

Slasher horror flick from director Brett Simmons. A group of teenage friends are taking a drive when they are hit by a murder of crows causing their truck to spin off the road and into a cornfield. After stumbling into an eerie scarecrow watching over the rows they soon begin to realise they are stuck in the middle of nowhere.... and an evil force seems to be picking them off one by one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some things are bound to scare... 13 July 2012
Format:DVD
In horror movies, there are certain things that are just inherently frightening. Clowns. Puppets. Demonic children... and what we have here, Scarecrows. Sack-faced killers with various sharp farming implements are scary... FACT. Loaded with man-flu and with the missus out for the night, I was left to entertain myself and discovered 2011's Husk on my TV movies on demand service.

The synopsis offered for this film seemed quite formulaic but I would suggest to you that Husk is a little gem of a movie. It has been criticised for being simply another shoddy stabby scarecrow movie but I enjoyed this. The plot was in place (albeit fairly obvious), the characters were par for the course for a movie of this nature and the special effects were excellent; especially when factoring in the movie's reported sub $10,000 budget. The acting wasn't superb but didn't have to be; the film's storyline carries the actors along nicely. Importantly, the frights were most definitely there.

There are some genuinely creepy moments among the cornfields and Director Brett Simmons builds suspense and tension at the appropriate moments. The blood, gore and violence employed warrants an 18 rating in the UK, a veritable breath of fresh air when you consider the glut of horror movies that tone down the gore factor in order to achieve a lower certification and garner further revenue from potential sales and cinema attendance.

Comparisons with the likes of Dark Night of The Scarecrow, Jeepers Creepers, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Children of the Corn are obvious but this is a horror movie and certain archetypes are pervasive throughout the genre and I am of the opinion that Husk is a competent and enjoyable movie in its own right.

4.0 out of 5 stars CEREAL KILLER 20 Sep 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
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 "..FUN HORROR.." 1 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This is the perfect night in horror flick with all the right levels of scares, blood and badass scarecrows!! It has a semi original story which plays out pretty well over the course of the film, the cast is ok, its a good popcorn lots of jumps and scares film thats worth checking out if you love horror!! Theres nothing in the way of extras though but trailers for some other great films in the same series like prowl and Re-kill.

3.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric, Creepy Scarecrow Movie 15 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
After Dark- you hear the film studio name and you instantly become wary since the movies are often bordering between terrible and amusing. 'Husk' defied my expectations and is actually amusing if you put your mind in neutral and go for the ride.

Since other reviewers have generously supplied info regarding the plot I'll pass it by and say what I thought of the film.

It typically starts with a predictable opening to arc into the overall storyline however past this it becomes enjoyable. Aside from one actor I know from Harper's Island, the rest are relatively new to me and did a decent job. Nothing Oscar worthy but enjoyable without going OTT.

For me the best thing regarding the film is the story. Whilst it has elements of Jeepers Creepers, it still deviates enough into its own area so some surprises do creep up on you.

The lighting is confined to shadows and pale light to intensify the eerieness and fair play it works. Husk's location is the perfect spot utilizing the cornfield and isolated surroundings. Add a delapidated house with a spooky interior and bingo! Everything comes full circle.

The only problem with Husk is the ending which spoils an otherwise amusing premise. So cliche and predictable it leaves a disappointing taste in the mouth. Other than that Husk is fun. Not life changing or visionary but a fun popcorn style of film to enjoy, especially with friends.

Usually I'd say skip yet in this instant I say take a gamble. Husk is cheesy but worth seeing. A surprising lil hit from a movie company that usually fails to deliver. Recommended.
