The premise of “Husk” seems fairly solid: broken down car next to a lonely cornfield that surrounds a deserted house. Three of the four stranded friends eventually venture into the corn, encountering unfriendly scarecrows and the house’s strange, evil powers.

At least, that’s what I think is going on. Truthfully, “Husk” is far too disjointed to be very scary. It’s also rife with clichés and hampered by characters that do little to elicit sympathy for their plight. And at 27 minutes, it takes way too long to reach its question mark ending. It would also help, when making a film about people supposedly stranded far from help, not to include shots of highway traffic in the background.
