A young couple find out the meaning of sheer terror as they experience the lonely backwoods of Maine. In a town forgotten live a 110 year old mother and her son "baby", as well as over 100 scarecrows. Sarah and David are a young couple just graduating from high school, and enjoying thier last Summer off. They decide to explore the state together, riding down roads they have never seen before. Eventually they have a break down, and end up having to push the car in the blazing sun, thinking they surely will come across a house or gas station soon. What they come across is an empty town full of scarecrows, and soon realize that they are not alone.
The result that ensues is a cat and mouse chase three times over. The film is done in the style of "Deliverance", and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," and has paranoia, and scares around every corner.
