"There are B-grade horror movie fans who love mindless flicks about some kind of supernatural killer who wont stay dead. However, there is B-grade in the plus(+), and B-grade in the Minus(-) category. And all 3 of these Scarecrow movies are in the B Minus, Minus (B--) grading.
Part 1: Trying to kick off as a TEEN tale of a couple of kids sitting around the bong-fire telling ghost stories. One kid tells the tale of Lester Dwervick who is a high school student who is not well liked; just about all the kids pick on him except for one girl. He's a loner-geek type who's mommas a white-trash ho who brings home a drunken red-neck boyfriend one night who ends up killing Lester out in a corn field underneath a Scarecrow. The town is apparently "EVIL" and Lester finds his soul has been transformed into the Scarecrow and he can for fill his fantasies about getting revenge on all the people who hurt him. He ends up a cool looking Scarecrow killer, however, the flipping around like a ninja is a bit stupid, but not as stupid as the stupid comments he makes after every kill he does. It might be funny when Arnie does things like that ONCE a movie, but this one was over the top after a while and goes from humorous to just stupidly annoying. The end of the movie really is stupid, and the acting of walking away acting so cool about it is just ######.
1 and a half stars. Seen worse: ya might get a laugh out of how corny it is, but don't expect much more out of it.
Part 2: Scarecrow Slayer; fans of the CANDYMAN will be appalled by Ton Todd's performance as a nut ball who's parents we're killed 25 years ago by the Scarecrow. He wrote numbers of laughed at books about it and is in an interview that gets cut short 'cause he hears noises outside. He ends up accidentally killing a kid who was sent by his frat party to steal the Scarecrow as part of the initiation. He ends up putting that kids soul into the Scarecrow and he ends up mindlessly killing people. The plot continues on as his girlfriend escapes hospital after the Scarecrow kills off the guy who killed him, then they run around trying to escape, and having to go back and forth, blah blah blah, marine-trainees, blah blah blah, scarecrow vs scarecrow, blah blah blah..... ba zzzzzzzzzzzz.
2-stars: bad CGI effects, useless scenes, plots carrying on like it MEANS something to someone, over drawn, over acted. "Slayer" Huh? That would require someone hunting the scarecrow wouldn't it?
Part 3: Scarecrow gone wild; ya'd probably thing it meant the Scarecrows gone on vacation to the Mardi-gra or something, but nope; Again, as a fraternity pledge prank, they leave the diabetic kid in the field tied to a scarecrow. They don't know he's diabetic and acting like he wants to hit them cause of it, his soul ends up in the Scarecrow, but he's not dead. His best friend seeks out to help him. It does have a bit of an unsuspected ending, but doesn't mean it's any good. It rips off JASON: Goes to hell (Friday the 13th 9). Fans of ex-WWF wrestler Ken Shamrock might enjoy seeing him in this film as the coach... but he aint going to be making an acting name for himself anytime soon. (BTW: This is also one of those mindless movies where if they can throw in a woman wearing no top for no reason, they do it: So you kids under 14 who giggle and feel funny at the bra section of catologs will love it, but everyone else will roll there eyes)
OVERALL: Don't pay to see any of them unless you wanna watch it to purposely see how bad they are and have a laugh AT it. The scarecrow looks really cool in the first 2, however the 3rd looks like a bad rubber mask. But the whole thing they put him into is just stupid, first he talks, then he doesn't, then he's a demon and a person in one, then its a demon who copies there personalities...EUHH, make up your minds. These look more like student films then anything else. It's kinda hard to get into a horror movie when it looks like the midday movie, made for TV. Expect a 4th sequel sometime soon, if there not worth making, there guaranteed to go on. But I wont have any interest in watching it; if I'd not grabbed all 3 at the same time, I wouldn't have bothered to see the rest after part 1."
This is the one to buy

"These movies are kinda lame but when you're watching a couple movies called SCARECROW and SCARECROW SLAYER what do you expect...
but the first one was my favorite.. it had Danny Elfman's brother (who I forget his name) playing two different parts.. a cop and a redneck.. and has some amazing quotes.. that I've actually sampled and used in some music of mine!
The second one has TONY TODD and I'm ashamed for him... cause he was in one of the worst special effects death scenes in history.. I'd rather it been NO BUDGET FAKED HOME VIDEO DEATH than what they did with his death.. damn..
but yeah SCARECROW is worth the money.. and I have yet to see part three but I'm sure it's just as bad!"
Two times as good

"Scarecrow and Scarecrow Slayer are both incredible movies for anyone who would be reading the review for a movie called scarecrow slayer. Not only are they both a gem they are both on the same disc, what else could you ask for??... maybe battling possesed scarecrow fighting in a lighting storm for the love of a moderately attractive farm girl.
The only thing better then Scarecrow 1 and 2 is scarecrow 3! Scarecrow Gone Wild, staring Ken Shamrock. If you see one of em you gotta see em all.
