Husk (2011)

Written and directed by Brett Simmons.  Starring C.J. Thomason (and some other people I don’t care about).

Plot: a group of friends become stranded at a desolate farmhouse in the middle of a cornfield and are soon hunted by scarecrows


I love horror movies.  Always have, always will.  But sometimes when you watch certain horror movies you end up with more questions than answers.  Like, why were there nails in their fingers?  And why didn’t they try destroying the sewing machine?  And why did they keep splitting up?  And why when she said “I think that scarecrow is a person” did he not check to see if – in fact – the scarecrow was a person?  And why didn’t they just try to take off all the scarecrow’s masks since it seemed to incapacitate them?

These people don’t work together nicely.  I don’t even think some of them tried very hard to keep themselves alive.  It’s unrealistic and the story behind the scarecrows is crap.  But I wouldn’t say I hated.  I mean the acting was decent and there were good special effects and I did get to watch C.J. Thomason run around for a while.  And he’s cute and all.

Still, I can’t really recommend it unless you also like C.J. Thomason.  So, I give it a 30/100.


About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
