For generations, it was an urban legend that lived in the nightmares of children. Now, the season to rejuvenate the tale will revive a town's darkest fears. With the Scarecrow Festival on the horizon, school teacher Aaron Harris is doling out punishment for six students serving detention, including the moody Tyler, Goth girl Nikki, wrestling team captain Daevon, and straight-A student Maria. Their task: help their friend Kristen's family farm with some grunt work before it's sold. But the cornfields circling the farm come with a legend and Tyler takes macabre delight in recounting the tale: It never sleeps, it never dies, it can't be stopped, hear their cries. The Scarecrow lives to kill us all. Keep it buried in the fall... When the kids play a terrifying game of cat and mouse in the cornfield with what they believe is a wild animal, Kristen tries to convince them that the Scarecrow is a very real creature of fierce strength and power, rejuvenated by the blood of its prey and proof comes all too soon. As darkness falls over the rustling fields, the last survivors must fend off the flesh-ripping terrors of the Scarecrow. As autumn falls across the land, there's a palpable chill in air that can freeze the blood. Scarecrow is coming.

I didn't know what to expect from this movie but was drawn to it by the brilliantly creepy cover art. I'm glad I took a chance with it because it's a down and dirty frightfest that hares along a great pace with some good performances (as well as a couple of average ones) towards a confrontation that had me shouting at the telly. Great fun!

Unfortunately (for me) the plot was out of whack all through. Detention on a weekend—maybe they do it differently in the USA. Only two of the kids actually looked as if they would make good candidates for detention, they rest were unbelievable. The teacher was too young and the story panned out into this love tryst between two old friends who became love rivals. Then, as has been pointed out, the woman of the men's affection turns up at her families farm that has lain waste for a long time. Then the plot of the story unveiled itself. They were there to remove a Scarecrow to take to a festival. Why? Then the story roll on into predictable cliches and high body counts—oh, and of course one of the rivals doesn't make it. There's a surprise.
Regarding the CGI Scarecrow. Here's where I found the plot, lost its plot. SPOILER ALERT: To dispose of it you had to bury it somehow. Yet through most of the film it came out of the ground. Am I missing something?
All in all a film that could have done a lot better. The premise of the story in some parts was group needs to escape from the Scarecrow?Zombie/Alien/Vampire. You could have fitted any of the current superstar monsters into the part of the creature as it lacked an individuality and took heavily from other films in its effects and story. Night of The Living Dead springs to mind in a couple of scenes.
If there was a refund button set up I wouldn't hit it as sometimes you need a trashy, poor horror film in your life, and this was it.

I cannot unseen this tragic effort of a so called "film" It is a complete disgrace and I ended up fast forwarding the last 30 minutes as I could take no more! I should have known from the start its was tripe. The funny thing is, the scarecrowe in the field never actually moves! It is the same CGI as used in the Mummy when he finally decides to appear. For some reason dragging teenagers 20 yards round a corn field. A corn field that looks well maintained to say no one has been there for years. The cast are abysmal. The teachers being roughly the same age as the students, equally 25 years old. They have received some kind of detention for a reason outlined about facebook that didnt make sense. What finer way to spend detention that taking all of them on a field trip! The teacher then doubles up as a bus driver (lucky) and demands all of the students mobiles (of course) There is one girl who is on the bus that runs off never to be seen again! You have to use your imagination on that one. The lead actress somehow drives up and meets the gang at her own farm! It needs 8 people to dismantle this thing, which no one ever draws attention to the fact it has a human skull! We by pass that part. The scarecrowe can not only fly and climb up walls, it also has the ability to tunnel underground and appear like vines sprouting up through the ground! We dont actually see anyone get killed, just being picked up by the head! I got to the stage where they visited the house in the middle of nowhere, the car doesnt start either by the way, from this random bloke that nothing to do with anything that also rocks up at this remote farm.The owner of this house misses the knocking and instead chooses to sit at the back of his house with the shotgun. Id had enough.Read more ›

As far as the story and acting goes,pretty grim but a creature to die for,very good cgi,but its a shame the terrible acting and story makes poor use of such a very well done monster in the form of the scarecrow.Its the usual story,cabin,field and scarecrow.great special effects,awful everything else.

I bought this coz I'm a horror fan. The film is actually not bad. But it's terribly unscary. Also the beefing seemed unnecessarily dragged out. At only 82 minutes the film seemed to last an eternity. But the gore is always welcome and here it's fairly gory. I liked the screaming. There was A LOT of screaming. The scarecrow itself wasn't as scary as Batman Begins scarecrow. Robin Dunne was very easy on the eye. YUM! Lacey Chabert is wonderful as the final girl. Predictable? Yes. Unoriginal? Check. But fun? Tonnes.

Utter garbage! I've seen better acting in an infant nativity! Terrible CGI that looks like its experimental rather than a professional piece for a film! Avoid!!! :(

I bought this film as it stars the lovely, Lacey Chabert. The budget on the film is a little on the low side, but it still features some decent special effects.

if I had one complaint, it's I think the film could have been a bit more suspenseful, the plot feels a bit rushed at times. An entertaining film just don't expect to much.
