Awful? Absolutely. Campy fun? Absolutely

"What's with all the negative reviews of this film? This is a movie that is so unabashedly terrible that I can't help but like it. I rarely speak of such hallowed territory, but this movie reaches the "so bad that it's good" plateau. With lines like Character A: Be careful? Character B: It's okay I know this place like the back of my hand Character A: No I mean there's a homicidal scarecrow out there! What's not to like? The ridiculous plot? The wooden acting by Ken Shamrock? The ending which completely rips off the Exorcist? The insipid dialogue which was clearly written by a guy who has no idea how women talk? The token black guy who says token black guyisms? The fact that you can see the scarecrow's mask flapping up often?
Never have I enjoyed a movie which is so bad so much. Look in this era of bloated self-important films which run far longer than they should, why can't we appreciate a silly little horror film with gratuitous nudity and cornfields 5 minutes away from an ocean beach? **1/2 / 4

"After seeing Scarecrow Slayer and liking it, I bought this movie without renting it first. It looked like it might be a good sequel. WRONG!!!! This is a terrible movie!! First of all, the casting and acting is terrible. Ken Shamrock better stick to what he does best because acting is not it! What a terrible actor! He plays a coach of some college kids who decide to head to the beach for a spring break. Before going, they tie a poor diabetic guy to the scarecrow as part of some kind of joke. This brings the scarecrow back to life. The boy is later discovered by a friend who stayed behind. He finds him very sick and brings him to the local hospital. Meanwhile, the kids are at the beach. In this movie, the scarecrow whistles and when you hear this silly whistle, you know that someone is about to be killed. This movie has few killing scenes and is just plain boring and silly. For anyone who did not like Scarecrow Slayer, please do not waste your time or money on even renting this cheap movie."

"myself, i liked the movie, there was some spots where they talked too quiet, some fight scenes that didnt look real, but aside from that it was good, i mean college kids getting killed? who wouldnt like that? i love slasher movies, as well as these new psychological horrors too, but i growed up on slashers and still love em, the bloodier the better. this movie could of had more blood in it and gorier death scenes.i enjoyed the twist at the end. if given the chance, id see the first 2 scarecrow movies as well. and if a 4th is made id see it too. im glad slasher movies are still being made for those of us that still like em."
Jeepers Creepers rip off!

"This movie is such a huge rip off of the two Jeepers Creepers films. The only difference is the cheesey nudity and believe me, it's ugly nudity. The only reason I gave it ONE star is two fold: first I can't put down zero stars; and second there were some funny lines in it."
