What's it about
Four pals get sent away to a remote location as a part of some sort of team-building, bonding exercise. They are most looking forward to getting inebriated and up to no good, and run into 3 bizarre girls. These aren't just any ladies though, but cursed witches, suffering from a curse laid down by their father (who they killed and strung up as a scarecrow). That's right, the Tanner sisters are the daughters of a woman who was killed as a witch.
Is it good movie?
The premise of Scar Crow is kind of cool (but it ultimately falls apart pretty quickly). The cursed witch sisters trying to redeem themselves from a horrible curse from their dead scarecrow father who wants body parts to be resurrected? Sounds good, right? Ehhhh.

Anyway, bring in the crew of bodies, Daz, Tonk, Joe and Nigel who get stuck on their survival course and have no phones or anything like that to get them by for the week (after being taught by some laughable looking "commandos".

From here, one of the guys gets his wiener ripped off after he pees on the evil father scarecrow, but his stupid friends don't really seem to care. They're way more interested in trying to have sex with the sisters. They get trapped doing stupid things, giving into the girls who are clearly evil.

It's certainly not like this movie's a complete waste. I dug the effects, which were done well for a flick with such a low budget. The gore is rather plentiful, but nothing too incredible. You'll also find some pretty decent boobage, should you be in the mood.

In terms of acting, don't pick this one up expecting anything overly impressive. The dudes (played by Darren McIlroy, Kevyn Connett, Tim Major and Michael Walker) are okay, but the ladies are a little lacking (though you will likely enjoy some of the girl on girl action Marysia Kay and Gabrielle Douglas treat you to).

Ultimately, the plot is confusing and you never really understand why things are happening the way they do (why does no one go looking for these guys?). Sure, the girls kind of need bodies to help their evil dad? They don't seem to have enough, but this might not trip up your enjoyment of the flick. Sometimes it seems that it wants to be serious, sometimes it's ripping off your wiener and throwing it in the field. I guess points for trying to mix it up are due?
Video / Audio
Video and Audio specs aren't listed, but they look and sound acceptable, nothing special.
The Extras
There's a brief behind the scenes featurette of location scouting, and trying on some of the makeup
and masks for the movie. A few cast and crew interviews are thrown in, but this only runs about 10 minutes.

There's also a trailer included.
Last Call
The ending of the film is laughable, the acting is spotty and there's plenty of low budget gore. Honestly, you can do better.
