Run Time: 87 minutes
For 300 years, European communities panic with the fear of witches living among them. The witch-hunts seek out, torture and murder tens of thousands of women. The three Tanner sisters live in fear after their mother is hanged for witchcraft. In her absence, their incestuous father is making their lives miserable and eventually takes a kitchen knife to the face as the three witches in training exact revenge for his naughty behavior. They tie him to the scare crow pole in their field but before he dies he places a curse on them all, trapping them for eternity on the farm.
In the year 2009 the three girls devise a plan to release themselves from the curse but in order for it to work they must first re-animate their rotting father and use him as a weapon of slaughter in order to gain 4 souls to replace their own, trapped within the curse.
As fate would have it, four insurance salesmen show up at the farm, lost while out on a team-building exercise. Seeing the three ultra-hot wenches in corsets, these guys figure they are going to score big-time, but little do they know the murderous father lies in wait in full scare crow garb, ready to rip their souls from their bodies in the most heinous of fashion and use their body parts to build a new scare crow to watch over the cursed farm.
On the negative side, the story-line was pretty ho-hum and uninspired. And the ending was disappointingly weak and predictable. This was a movie that had the feel of a story that was fleshed-out as an afterthought to compliment the kill scenes. Not that that's a bad thing, mind you, it just missed a golden opportunity to be a great movie by not putting as much thought into the story as was put into the sticky red stuff.
Here’s how I break it down-
Story: 5 out of 10
Gore-Level: 7.8 out of 10
Eye-Candy: 6.5 out of 10
Factor in one bonus point for no CGI nonsense and my overall score is a fairly respectable:
6.8 out of 10
