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

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

What Director Brett Simmons does effectively as a storyteller is establish a believable back-story to these creatures and pull you right into the victims' world with well-paced energy and some really great moments of tension.

A very good horror film involving a killer scarecrow. That should explain the most of it, but it's still one of the best killer scarecrow flicks out there.
