“The film does blatantly rip-off many aspects of the 1988 William Wesley cult horror film, Scarecrows while mashing up some themes from films like Children of the Corn and Texas Chainsaw. But Husk mostly succeeds in its clever genre-bending.” IGN


“This is pretty much the standard After Dark flick that we’ve all come to expect over the last few years. Standard story, standard characters doing the same standard things, and the same standard dialogue.” AnythingHorror
