The set-up: three college dudes and a chick whose favors was once sampled by at least two of ’em, end up in haunted cornfield inhabited by scarecrows that run really fast and gut you with a scythe, or “Texas pocketknife.”

The plot: once the main scarecrow dude gets inside your mind’s underwear, you end up in an abandoned house in the upstairs room, making a back-up supply of scarecrow masks with an old sewing machine. Those not yet turned into scarecrows will be trying ’em on soon.

The sub-plot: there’s a psychic backstory that shows an abusive farmer teachin’ his boys how to be men by gutting pigs for sandwiches and soup flavorings. I’m not spoiling anything by telling you the younger kid is the demon scarecrow.

Husk (2010) is standard cornfield horror that’s been done lots better in Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981). The irony of all this is I didn’t see one crow. What a rip-off.
