"I have to admit I laughed out loud at some of the dialogue and incredibly stupid things that go on in this movie. The dumb blonde girl had some really stupid lines but delivered them so sincerely, I howled. For instance, when one of the so-called Marines says he has a bumble bee to kill the scarecrow, she lamely asks why use a bug? Is the scarecrow allergic to bees? Oh, my..and when the doctor at the seriously understaffed hospital offers cookies I about lost mine. And just who is the chick the cop is in bed with? And is his partner, Rachel, his wife? And what happens to her? The effects are ridiculous; the stuntman scarecrow's acrobatics are hilarious. There is no acting at all, and poor Tony Todd's presence does nothing to legitimize this awful (but awfully funny) travesty. I think I'll give up on these scarecrow movies now that I've been assaulted with so many bad ones. (Jeepers Creepers is an exception)."
I feel really sorry for the Candyman.

"Well, after seeing the first Scarecrow, I was pretty sure they couldn't do a worse Scarecrow, but I was wrong, wrong, wrong, baby. Only Hatred of a Minute this movie from being perhaps the worst horror movie in the universe---although House of the Dud would give this movie a fine brawl. First of all, to make sure that I'm getting things straight, apparently, in the Scarecrow "Mythos", if you die within eight feet of a scarecrow---ostensibly any scarecrow---your soul will jump into the scarecrow's body. So, if you're feeling a little thin in the skin, hotfoot it to your local cornfield ASAP. Then, all you have to do is wait for some chick to kill you with fire or a garden thresher, and your soul will jump into HER body. See how it works?
What in the blue hell happened to the Candyman? Dear God. He was on the X-Files once, he was the Candyman, he was the Grim Reaper in those Final Destination movies. How did he end up here? Somebody out there call this poor guy and give him another decent role in a functioning movie. But of course, not even the Candyman, the Grim Reaper, Chuckie, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, "the Humungus", the Tooth Fairy, Captain Kirk, Shooter McGavin or the Main Man Jason Voorhees could save this stinkbomb.
At the beginning of the movie, the Candyman has the Scarecrow trapped, lashed to a post, but was this supposed to be the Scarecrow from the first movie? Because THAT Scarecrow ended up soul-jumping into that chick with the gigantic...uh...smile. Not to mention that fact that this new Scarecrow was supposed to have killed the Candyman's father several decades earlier. You can't even keep up with this crap, although, it might be easier if you gave a flying corncob. Anyway, the main guy of the movie gets croaked, jumps into the Scarecrow, and turns all evil for whatever reason. Also, throughout all of this, there's this screwball mass acceptance of the whole Scarecrow thing as some sort of lore to which everyone is automatically privy. There's alot of this: "Hey, do you believe all those stories about the Scarecrow?" What stories, what rumors, what legends? No one cares. You can't just make a horror icon like Voorhees or Freddy. It has to happen naturally, and it also requires more than six people lined up (at their local video store) to watch the movie.
Oh yeah, something else, there is NO Scarecrow "Slayer" in this movie. I wish there were. Some huge pissed-off crow with a claymore or a harpoon gun. That might have been better. Of course, a stunt like that might have required something just a notch higher than the movie's omnipresent "computer technology", which is used instead of any kind of physically-manufactured gore. This movie just sucks on so many different levels. I don't think there's really any kind of plot. The actors couldn't have been worse even if they had bred them on some farm for crappy actors. All of the characters suck, they need to die, die, die. The Scarecrow definitely sucks. But, the movie did have adequate closing credits."
Oh My God!!!

One of the WORST "horror" films in history....Really bad.

"This direct-to-video garbage centers around a scarecrow that takes over a college boy's soul and turns him into a killer. This is about as bad as it gets. The actors do their best. The lighting is good. The script is ok. The only person I can blame is the director and producer. As I watched this, I kept thinking "How could you make a movie this bad? Even accidentally?". A first year film student with an IQ of 10 could produce something more watchable than this. I love cheesy horror, but this is by far THE worst movie I've seen in 2 years! Give me 500 dollars and a crew that works for free and I could create a film 1,000 times more watchable."
