Teenagers are kidnapped and made into living scarecrows who are left to die in crop fields in an exceedingly frightening stoner-horror throwback in the vein of Jeepers Creepers and Scream. Scarecrows, from director Stu Stone, rise from the cornfields December 11 (US date) from Uncork’d Entertainment.

While on a hike to find a secret lagoon, a group of friends have no choice but to pass through an ominous cornfield. Unbeknownst to them, the farm owner despises trespassers and has vowed to kill anyone who crosses his land by turning them into living scarecrows, leaving them to rot in his fields. Once one goes up… it never comes down.

Scarecrows, starring Hannah Gordon (Hurt), Mike Taylor (Pure) and Umed Amin (A Simple Favor) and co-written by Stone and Adam Rodness, premieres on VOD December 11 and DVD February 1 from Uncork’d Entertainment.
