The indie scene from across the pond has proved it, too, can push out a turd or to when it sets its mind. This is the case for "Scareycrows." These "things" are supposed to either (a) keep away evil spirits from a small town in England, or (b) are demented killers controlled by a witch--which we'll talk about later.
Guys, you all have heard me say dozens of time that I don't have a problem with "camp." I also don't have a problem with "cheap," because I have been afforded many great opportunities to find some little gems by watching some "cheap" movies. This one, however, was just too much. It isn't funny enough to fall in the category of "comedy," and it isn't scary (at all), which would place it in the horror genre. The script (if there was/is one) is all over the place and makes little to no sense. The witch plot is just plain ridiculous. Seems a girl had the hots for one of the locals and he pushed her away! In fact, he pushed her over a wall and she now sits in a wheelchair uttering nary a word--all the while looking like she's just been hit in the head with a brick. Yet, for whatever reason, she controls the scareycrows.
I am one (of many) persons who think scarecrows are both creep and scary looking. The "scareycrows" look like their heads were drawn by first-graders. Note to director: if you at least want to attempt to scare your audience, don't have your monsters look like they've been drawn by school children.
The version I saw was not rated but contained sexual situations and some violence.
