Not as good as the first film...

I found the film Messengers 2: The Scarecrow, not to be as good as the first film, It did have a lot of nice scenery in the film. I did think that it was just as creepy as the original, It is about a farmer called John Rollins(Norman Reedus) John's corn crop is being eaten up by a swarm of crows. While John is going through the barn he finds an old scarecrow is found and John thinks it may scare away the crows. The next morning his cornfield is covered with dead crows. This film had quite a supernatural and a creepy kind of feel to it which made it a good film. Although i did think the actors were far better from the first movie. 4/10

Unconnected sequel in which a farmer must deal with an evil scarecrow

MESSENGERS 2: THE SCARECROW is an unconnected sequel to the first movie featuring a different story and a different cast. In this one, a down-on-his-luck farmer (played by THE WALKING DEAD actor Norman Reedus) discovers a weird old scarecrow in his barn and uses it to get rid of the crows devouring his sweetcorn. He soon finds out that the scarecrow has the power to bring luck to his farm and family, but inevitably there's a price to pay as well.

Much of the interest in this film lies in the presence of Reedus shortly before he became a cult favourite after starring in THE WALKING DEAD. Reedus crafts a likable character and is given plenty of screen time, which is great for fans; his acting is also very good, certainly better than anyone else in the film.

In other respects, MESSENGERS 2: THE SCARECROW is spooky rather than outright frightening. The plot mixes together monster action with inexplicable deaths and a foreboding atmosphere. Although the Pang brothers weren't involved with this film, as a whole the movie is well made and enjoyable. There's something about rural farmsteads which make them a great setting for horror movies and once again the creepy farm brings this film to life.

Reasonable formulaic horror but limited quality

John Rollins (Norman Reedus) is under pressure with his failing family farm. He has his wife Mary (Heather Stephens),daughter Lindsey (Claire Holt) and son Michael (Laurence Belcher). His farm is over-run with crows. He finds a creepy scarecrow in the barn to scare the crows. His son wants him to get rid of it. His new neighbor Jude Weatherby (Richard Riehle) convinces him to put it up. He hears voices. All the crows die. Sleazy banker George Chapman comes with an offer to buy him out. The broken water pump starts working again. The banker dies getting run over by a truck. There seems to be an evil possessing John. He grows more jealous of his wife's friend Tommy.

It's questionable if this is related to the first movie. It's just as well. The first one wasn't any good. This one is a little better. It has some personal drama that's not relying on a cheap reveal. The scarecrow is an old cliché but that's not a problem. I do like Reedus but he doesn't have enough range to project a big creepy change. I like the story in this one slightly better than the original but the production quality is straight-to-video level.
