release year:1988 genre:cheesy horror viewing setting:home VHS, 2/8/99 what I expected:something scary, from what I'd heard what I got:low-budget horror
synopsis:Bank robbers land their plane in the wrong deserted field.
impressions:The idea was a novel one, and the scarecrows were spooky to watch at times. However, the mood was ruined by bad acting and weird doings on the part of the scarecrows. I mean, what in the hell were they up to? (You'll know what I'm talking about if you watch the movie.)
body count:6 confirmed kills
acting:Some of the small cast did okay, while others turned in corny performances. Maybe it was the script's fault.
notable quote:"I think this house is haunted by demonic demons."
the good:few spooky moments
the bad:most of the acting and script
final word:Worth seeing, but it's no classic of the genre.
