Husk lacks much originality but serves up its combo plate of genre tropes with above-average flair and intensity on modest means.

Not terrible, but the 27-minute version was better.

September 6, 2011 Full Review Source: FEARnet

Suspense is valued here over gore, and it must be noted that the brief final scene manages to be genuinely eerie.

Runs through all the same cliches, but Husk has it's interesting twists and turns, and plenty of atmosphere.

Audience Reviews for Husk

Good enough killer Scarecrow movie but ultimately forgettable. Not as much gore as I was expecting either but I did find the finger nailing scenes quite horrible. It did provide a few well built creepy moments also but no proper scares. It was refreshingly quite unpredictable as far as who lived and died, no happy ending in this also which is another plus. But overall there's nothing too much to it, it jumps straight into things without much character development or build up of supense but it's decent enough for late night entertainment.

I am generally not a fan of slasher films. Most of them these days are just ridiculous. This film, however, is actually very well done, and doesn't go the route of the typical slasher film. It has more of a creepy factor, which I more prefer. If you take time to see the DVD extras, you will also find this movie was shot in 18 days, and each actor is basically unknown at this time. This movie is a shining example of really decent film making, and a really decent attempt at a storyline. Low budget slasher film fans probably hate this movie, because it isn't just cheap bloody thrills....

Husk would be a lot better if the plot wasn't so forced. Husk is about a group of kids who get in a car accident in the middle of nowhere in a corn field.

The kids first of all are very dumb. I'm not sure what possessed them to do any of the idiotic things they did. It didn't make sense; there was no logic behind their actions.

The plot itself seemed forced into place, and it wasn't explained at all. The geeky kid started seeing visions out of nowhere. You knew he was going to live for a while because the plot obviously needed to use him in order to tell the backstory of the corn field. That made the movie very predictable because you knew the plot couldn't go further without him. The other boy, Brian lost his girlfriend and started to go crazy, so you knew his dead girlfriend would somehow lead to his demise (*SPOILER* which it did). And the last boy, Brandon or whatever, was a selfish jerk, so you knew karma would get him sooner or later. The plot definitely needed to be fixed in order for the movie to work.
