The Scar Crow

Richard Boden


Four guys from a city insurance company are not interested in countryside team building exercises and assault courses. They would rather be playing or watching football and downing several beers while trying to lay anything in a skirt. Yet here they are on an all expenses paid company trip to the middle of nowhere deep in the English countryside, not their idea of a jolly weekend away.

But maybe their luck has arrived in the form of three sisters living and working alone on a farm close to a small village with a pub! Other than football, everything could be catered for after all! The sisters are friendly, open and warm, but all is not as it seems as the guys begin to wish they'd paid more attention on the assault course.

The sisters Mother was hanged for witchcraft in 1709 leaving them at the mercy of their abusive Father. Following years of abuse the sisters kill their father and hide his dead body in the fields as a scarecrow. With his dying breath he curses the sisters to a life of misery unable to pass over or leave the farm.
