The guys review #3 in what has become known as The Buchert Series: horror movies hand-picked by Director David Buchert (Blood Oath, In the Dark) as much for their unique and terrible qualities as their hilarious watch-ability.
This week, David chose Rise of the Scarecrows, a 2007 effort from horror auteur Geno McGahee that is as perplexing as it is terrible.
A big city cop transfers to a smaller precinct in Adams, Mass to get away from the high crime rate or something. Never mind that the precinct looks like someone’s dining nook or that the big city cop in question is in no shape for law enforcement whatsoever.
Just know that he and other luckless characters must now face the three undead scarecrows that inhabit the woods. And since everyone in this film either lives in or hangs out in or cuts through said woods, we now have ourselves a movie.
Are the Scarecrows simply a force of nature? A comment on our times? A reflection on the human situation? No. No they aren’t. Some dude just thought they would be scary. And now it’s our problem.
