Description: 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 (Richard Harmon) is doling out punishment for six students serving detention. Their task: help Aaron's ex-girlfriend Kristen (Lacey Chabert) fix her family farm 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...

Review: Sometimes there is this horror movie that, when you read its synopsis, you know your expectations are low. But there are also times that you’re just in the mood for a bad horror movie. If you’re looking for that, “Scarecrow” is the right movie.
A teacher is driving six of his student to a farm, where they have to help fix it before it’s sold, as part of their detention. The cornfield comes with a legend: the scarecrow has killed people. Off course no one believes it, until it is actually happening.
I actually got what I expected: bad acting, cheesy and unintelligent dialogues, stereotypes and a lot of clichés. “Scarecrow” isn’t scary at all. When I’m watching a horror movie, I’m always on edge, because I scare easily. Not once did it scare me, not once! Well, to me that’s a bad horror movie. But a different kind of bad, because other bad scary films entertain you at least because it’s so silly. “Scarecrow” takes itself way too seriously.
“Scarecrow” is not worth your time.

Rating: 0,5 / 5
