I'm doing the lake jump this year.

What'd you say?

I'm gonna do the lake jump this year.

That's what I thought you said.

You say that every year.

Yeah, but I mean it this time.

I mean, you only live once, right?


I'm going to climb to the top of big rock

and I'm gonna jump.

You're gonna get up there, man,

you're gonna look down

and you're gonna chicken out,

just like you always do.

You know I don't like heights.

You should do it, Johnny.

It's fun. I even did it.

Yeah, after Brian pushed you.

Still counts.

Hey, you think we'll see

those chicks this year?

Little strip poker.

Probably not, man.

That was Brian hooking that up.

You're gonna get Brian busted.

Dude, like it matters. That was last year.

They weren't even dating.

It's not like it's gonna make a difference to...


-Scott, you okay?

Yeah, my glasses.

Yeah, I think so.





-What happened?

-You're okay.

You're okay.

-Where is everybody?

-Look at me. Look at me.

We were in a wreck.

You're not hurt?

I don't think so, baby. What?

-We were in a crash?

-It's okay. It's okay.


-Out here.

-You all right?


Car isn't.

Go on, I'll help you out, baby.

Any luck?




How long do you think we were out?

I don't know. A few minutes, maybe.

Where do you think Johnny went?

Probably ran up the road looking

for a gas station or something.

You know him, Mr. Boy Scout.

Do you think he went here?

Somebody went here.

How did this happen?

Well, it's just a car, right?

At least everyone's okay.

Yeah, everyone is fine, except Johnny.

No one can find him.


-Hey, baby.

Is he pissed at me?


He's just pissed that his car is totaled.

No, I mean, the entire time.

He said like two words to me.

-I'm really trying here, baby.

-I know you are, baby.

I know, and you're doing great.

You just got to give him a chance, okay?

-For me?


Look, I'm gonna jog back to the gas station

we stopped at, get a tow truck.


-Yeah, I'll be back in no time. It'll be fine.


-Here we go.

Baby, what's your best mile?



Okay, so, the gas station

is like 40 miles away.

So I guess that'll take you like four hours.

Fine, you let me know

when you have a better idea, okay?

Hey, guys.

I think I know where Johnny went.

Are you sure we're gonna need these?

You'll need something long-sleeved

or you'll cut up your arms.

Why can't we just wait

for Johnny to come back with help?

Because Johnny's been gone way too long.

And we need a tow truck before nightfall.

I just...

Listen, I don't want you to go, okay?

I have a bad feeling about this place.

Baby, I'll be right back, okay?

You promise?

I promise.


-Are you ready?

-Are you kidding? I love corn.

Watch the road for me, okay?

Hey, you okay?

Track team.

Chess team.

Okay, pal. Come on, you can make it.

How long do you think they'll be?

Don't tell Brian I had one.

Don't tell Brian I gave you one.



Sorry about earlier.

You're right. lt's... It's just a car.

Look, it's not that I don't think

your car is important...

No, no, no. You're right.

My granddad used to say,

''Any day above ground is a good day.''

I used to hate that saying.

Now, I kind of get it.

It's fine.

Just need a phone.

We'll find someone to tow the car,

catch a ride to the lake house,

and pop open some cold beers.

Yeah, but how do we get back

after the lake house?

I mean, I have to work first thing Monday.

Relax. We'll get a rental. It's no problem.

Hey, hey, I was thinking.

Do you think maybe Natalie can invite

some of her friends?

You know, like that girl

that was at your birthday party.

Do you remember her? She was...

What was her name?

-She was...

-Are we going the right way?

The sun is over...

Yeah, this is the right way.

I think her name was something exotic.

Like Alexandra, maybe.

That's interesting.

Hey, Scott, come check this out.



-Get over here.

Check it out.

Here, boost me up.

What for?

Well, farmers typically place

scarecrows in a grid throughout the field

to help navigate when the corn is too high.

I read a lot.


-Do you see anything?


Don't do that. Don't do that.

You're just like my brother.

Okay, I'm sorry.

God, this thing smells.

Yeah, we're practically there.

And there's a light on

in the window upstairs.

I think someone's home.

Let's go.


Hey. Hey.

Hey, just wait.


-What happened?

Did you see that?

See what?

There... There was a...

A boy. He was... He was right there. I swear.


Anybody home?


What do you think?

Well, they're not the best housekeepers.

This is weird.

Yeah, I really don't think anybody lives here.


-Hey, are you all right?

-My God!

What happened?

It has teeth.

Is that a person?

-Smells like sh*t.


-What is it?

-No, I doubt it's a person.

It looks like a scarecrow.

-It's here to scare birds.

-What the f*** is it doing here?

Shouldn't it be in a field or something?

-Is this what you saw?

-No, I told you.

-I saw a boy.


-He was staring right at me, okay?

-I believe you.

-I told you that.


Natalie, can you sit down for a minute?

I have to find Brian, okay?

He'll know what to do.

-He'll be back in a minute. He's getting help.

-He doesn't know.

-I have to tell him.

-Tell him what?

There's something wrong, Chris.

Son of a b*tch.

Wait up.






What are you...








Where are you?





-Where is she?

-Hey, hi, hi.



I saw her. She got taken that way.



Let's go!



Oh, my God!

-Scott! Scott!

-Chris, are you...

What happened? Are you okay?

There is someone in the corn.


-There is somebody out there.

-They're after us. We gotta go.



Oh, sh*t! Oh, sh*t, Brian!

Brian. Are you okay?

-My God, what happened to your arm?

-They got her.

Who? Who got her?



We're surrounded.

We're f***ing surrounded.


-The f***ing corn.

It's everywhere.

Johnny's gone.

Wait, what? What you mean?

You found him?

Yeah, he was upstairs in the sewing room.

What the f*** was he doing in there?



Look, guys, I don't think we're safe here.

Yeah, no sh*t.

No, I mean here, in here, we're not safe.

Well, we're safer in here than out there.

How do you know that?

Look, we gotta find a way back to the road.

Hey, what do you not understand

about ''surrounded''?

We're not going back out there.

It's not happening.

Well, we have to find a way.

They slaughtered Natalie.

They ripped her a-f***ing-part, man.

Look at his arm.

Multiply that times your whole body.

What are your f***ing odds

of getting out of here now?

You sure came out fine.

You saw her.

And you didn't do a goddamn thing.


Hey, Brian. Come on, man.
