Killer scarecrows get new life After Dark

There's something about a killer scarecrow that's just cool. And, for whatever reason, few movies are made about them.

After Dark Films, the producers of the annual Eight Movies To Die For festival, have started making original material including Husk, which hits select theatres Jan. 28. We'll give you three guess as to what it's about and the first two don't count.

Written and directed by Brett Simmons, the film follows a group of friends left stranded on the side of the road when their SUV breaks down. A light in a distant farmhouse window attracts their attention .  .  . but to get to it they have to cross a cornfield. We'll give you three guesses as to what's in that field and the first two don't count.

The films in Eight Movies To Die For are generally hit and miss. The same will likely be true of After Dark's original offerings. The trailer below looks interesting, but we'll reserve our final decision for when Shawn and I screen Husk in The Basement . . . and you know we will!
