Messengers 2: The Scarecrow

Synopsis: The family man farmer John Rollins is stressed with his financial situation: the crows and the lack of irrigation are destroying his crop of corn; the bank is near closure of his mortgage; he does not have credit to fix the water pump or to buy seeds; and his marriage is in crisis and his wife Mary is giving too much attention to her friend Tommy. When John accidentally discovers a hidden compartment in the barn, he finds a creepy scarecrow but his son Michael makes him promise to destroy it. However, his neighbor Jude Weatherby visits him, gives a six-pack of beer to the abstemious John and convinces him to put the scarecrow in the cornfield. Out of the blue, the life of John changes: the crows die; the pump works again irrigating the land; and the banker responsible for the closure has an accident and dies. However, he feels that his land is possessed by something evil that is threatening his beloved family.

- Miranda.

- Jude?

I'm so sorry.

I hope you know the whole town's talking

about you walking out of church today.

Yeah, well, they'll talk about

somebody else tomorrow, right?

What's wrong?

The crops are dying of thirst.

I gotta fix this pump.

I don't care about our crops.

I care about you.

I was raised on a farm.

You think I'd be good at this by now.

You are good at it.

Well, you're a great father.

That must count for something, huh?

Well, as soon as great father

pays 40,000 a year, I'll be fine with it.

John, come on.

I'm sorry.

Wanna kiss and make up?

Hey, you got something on your nose

right there.

All right, I'll go make lunch.

- What's so funny?

- Nothing.

All right, come help me with lunch.

Come on.

Michael wants you to tuck him in.

How long did it take

before they shut off the power last time?

- Two months.

- They're late.

You are all knotted up.

You need to relax. Come to bed.

I'd love to.

But you're not going to.

I just... Let me finish this, all right?

Then I'll come up.

All right.

Good night.

What's wrong?

- Should I be worried about you and Mom?

- Why?

- You slept on the couch last night.

- No, baby, I was up late paying bills.

I accidentally fell asleep.

You've been accidentally falling asleep

on the couch a lot lately.

- Mr. Rollins.

- Hey, Randy.

Yeah, Mr. Fitterson wanted a word,

if you're not too...

I get to guess?

Yeah, of course.

Guess the weight and your purchase is free.

That figures. Just put them on my tab.

Mr. Rollins, I can't. You're supposed to...

Never mind. I'll put them on your tab.

Randy, I thought I told you.

Leave those bags for now, Rollins.

You and I, we need to have a word.

I'll be right back.

Lindsey, let's go. Come on.

Don't be like that, John.

I'm trying to run a business here.

I'm not the bad guy here.

You tell your father to pay his bills,

this won't happen.

You're a class act, Jim.

Lindsey, let's go.




- Hey, munchkin.

- Who's he?

It's not a he. It's an it. It's a scarecrow.

I don't like it.

- Well, hopefully the crows won't, either.

- The crows?

Yeah, that's how it gets its name.

It scares crows.

It's bad, Daddy.

It's not bad. It's not good.

It's just a bunch of clothes

stuffed with straw.

You all right?

Please, Daddy, get rid of it.


I won't put it up, all right?

- Promise?

- Scout's honor.

How about another driving lesson?

Mom said I can't drive the tractor.

It's too dangerous.

You're a natural. We won't tell Mom.

You better get rid of it first.

Jesus Christ.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Since when do you use his name in vain?

You startled me.

What are you doing back there?

I'm just getting this old stuff ready to sell.

Won't bring in much,

maybe some grocery money,

but every little bit counts.

- Who's gonna buy that old junk?

- Tommy said he'd buy it.

He's gonna use it for his rental properties.

He said it makes it more homey.

You sure spend a lot of time

with Tommy lately.

- Well, that's something.

- What's something?

You being jealous. Means you still care.

I'm not jealous. Of course I still care.

So, what's the verdict?

Well, it's not good.

If we harvest now,

maybe we can sell about half.

If I wait for the rain,

the crows may not leave anything at all.

You'll make it work. You always do.



Lord, if this is your will, then I'll try...

I'm really trying.

Forget it.

You're Rollins, right?

Sorry about the trespassing.

- I'm Jude Weatherby.

- Weatherby.

A sharecropper. I'm working

the widow Lockett's spread till harvest.

Weatherby. That sounds really...
