"Scarecrow Gone Wild"

Scarecrow Gone Wild (2004) is a low budget direct to vid teen horror film, and the third one in the Scarecrow series. Both who commented at IMDb say it is the best of the three. While it betrays its minuscule budget, it looks pretty good, has an actual story, some surprises, decent acting, and two women who show breasts. A college baseball team is hazing new members over spring break, and incur the wrath of the scarecrow, who mind melds with one of the kids, then starts killing the entire gang. There are three locations, the beach, some building that is supposed to be a trauma center, and a school.

Lisa Robert plays the woman who shows her breasts, in what may have been a sub-plot that was dropped. She is the new wife of a doctor, and step mother to one of the lead women. Her exposure is completely gratuitous. Tara Platt, who seems to have a real career going, with a lead in a film currently in post production, goes topless at the beach, in a lengthy and well lit scene.

IMDb readers, all 6 of them, have this at 6.7. There are no reviews listed. This is a reasonable entry in the teen slasher genre, and fans won't mind the time they spent watching it. C.

    Poll results - whose goodies do you most want to see?

    We still love Love.

    "Of the women who have not done a filmed nude scene of any significance, whose first nude scene are you most eager to see?"

    The winner of this poll, by a landslide, was Jennifer Love Hewitt, who out-polled the next two women added together! I guessed she'd be in the top ten, but I figured it would be low in the top ten. I never dreamed she'd be #1, and the landslide flabbergasts me. Obviously, Uncle Hef should be seeking her out for a celebrity spread, because she's still the girl of our dreams.

    My girl, Jessica Alba, finished a very convincing second, easily beating the third place winner, Elisha Cuthbert. I did vote for Alba myself, but I didn't expect her to make the top ten, given that the list included bigger names and/or women with hotter current projects.

    Here are my other surprises:

    1. I didn't think that Alison Hannigan would finish in the top 10, although I do think she is sexy in an friendly, off-beat way. I was surprised to see her beat Natalie Portman, The Olsens, Winona Ryder, and Jennifer Aniston.
    2. The Olsens had virtually no support.
    3. I thought Scarlett Johansson would finish in the top ten, possibly in the top three, but she had remarkably little support with only 29 votes out of more than 1200 cast.
    4. Support was remarkably light for Nikki Cox and Jeri Ryan

    One thing that didn't surprise me:

    • Not one damned person really wants to see Natasha Lyonne naked. (Although we all would look, of course, if she strolled in the room)

    Here's a comparison of (approximately) how I thought the Top 10 would go, versus how it actually went. I wasn't even close. Six of my picks, including my number one, missed the list completely.

      My guess Actual
    1 Olsens * Hewitt
    2 Spears Alba
    3 Portman * Cuthbert
    4 Cuthbert Spears
    5 Johansson * Dunst
    6 Dunst Dushku
    7 Ryan * Lohan
    8 Cox * Heigl
    9 Hewitt Twain
    10 Aniston * Hannigan

    From The Sleuth

    Dear Scoop:

    Hope you're doing well and prospering.

    I have actually added a NEW VALUE to replacing ESPN! Being too busy to watch the NBA finals live, I put my time to better use by catching up on your wonderful "Other Crap" archives and, then, around midnight, would click onto the latest find out the Lakers-Pistons score!! Then I could watch it on tape if it sounded worthwhile...

    Bet I'm the only one who uses for THAT!!!

    We're off to London and Wimbledon next week...I've got a "Sports Figures" issue coming up, and it makes perfect sense to me that I should "research" babes like Dementieva and Sharapova in PERSON to see if they're "Sleuthworthy." Doesn't that sound reasonable?

    While I'm away, perhaps you and the Fun Housers could keep an eye for and cap two films on the horizon:

    1) "PULSE", which streets 7/27 and promises: "A teenage Mischa Barton in wet, transparent clothes and participating in near-orgiastic and vampiric sex."   (my annual "TeleVisions" issue is next up)   The distributor is First Look.

    2) "3-WAY", which stars my birthdate mate Gina Gershon and Ali Larter (and ugh! Dwight "Dirt Sandwich" Yoakam) and includes beautiful young blacktress Joy Bryant "in a Skinemax-worthy shower scene." It's a Columbia TriStar release.


    Also, I was able to see 5-6 vidcaps of the Gena Lee Nolin sex tape...but nothing else (either images or the video itself). Do you know of any links to obtain either?

    And lastly, I followed your Severina Vuckovich link (talk about your "15 minutes"...), and downloaded the video...but it would only play as a still image...I could hear her orgiastic moans but the image didn't change for the full 11 minutes. Having never seen a Croatian EuroVision songstress in a home sex video, I was wondering if you could perhaps send a working link (or the video itself) to me if you get a chance.

    Thanks very much...your site remains the Nijinsky of the 'Net.


    Scoop's note: do any of you guys have more on that Gena Lee thing?



    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    Some classics

    Typically first-class production from HBO, both in the filming and in the DVD mastering. When it comes to doin' everything right, HBO is da man. When it comes to production quality, they are the Disney of cable networks. Including spectacularly beautiful nudity! I liked the movie, and Tuna loved it. We both would have enjoyed it if it were twice as long, me because I thought it was too shallow on some important elements of her life, Tuna because he just couldn't get enough of it.

    • Laure Marsac in Interview With a Vampire. This scene was supposed to be scary, or stylish, or creepy, or something, but is actually laugh-out-loud silly. Laure Marsac, however, looked great naked. (.avi) (.wmv)

    • Leslie Horan in Widow's Kiss. I don't know a friggin' thing about this movie except that Bev D'Angelo did a nude scene at about age 40, but Leslie (of General Hospital fame) is hot. (.avi) (.wmv)

    • Priscilla Barnes in The Crossing Guard. Sean Penn shows some talent as a director, but the lad is no writer, and he also wrote this. (.avi) (.wmv) (review)


    Perhaps these tips will help if you have trouble with the codecs for these movies:

    Shiloh says:

    FYI when I hypercam vids to make the file size smaller I use DivX MPEG-4 Fast-Motion for the video compressor, then I use virtualdub to compress the audio. The properties for the vids says the video codec:  DivX Decoder Filter & audio codec:  Morgan Stream Switcher which I'm not familiar with. When I compress the audio with virtualdub I use MPEG Layer-3.  A friend of mine told me about compressing the audio about (6) mos. ago. Like I said previously, only been capping for a year & a half & I'm no expert. Hopefully this info will help members with the proper codecs for my vids.
    When I cap big brother's I use hypercam mostly & sdp & asfrecorder if the set up allows me. I stopped using camtasia cause the file sizes were always too big, could never figure out the process, over my head lol, plus it cost too much to buy in my opinion.

    A reader says:

    You mentioned that some users were having trouble with the videos on your site. There is a tool designed to determine what codec is needed for a video. Hope this is useful to you or your users.

    Scoop says:

    I made the .wmv versions of each video. The codecs for these: Windows Video V8, Windows Audio 9. The upside of these is that you know the codecs, and they'll play in the Windows Media Player. The downside is that they are slightly larger, and slightly lower quality.

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:

    Went to the zoo a while back. Visited the hippo exhibit. One of those giant beasts was wading around in his pool when he let loose with the kind of defecatory event possible only when a half-ton animal eats fifty pounds of hay and vegetables every day of its life. A brown jet expanding in clear blue water. Ugliest damn thing I ever saw.

    Until I watched Anthony's Desire (1993).

    One guy, by the name of Tom Boka, wrote, directed, produced, acted in, catered, gaffed and best-boyed this movie. A labor of love it was. And it was meant to be arty, with a story of loneliness and conflict and brooding flavored with arty prose and fine music. The major task of brooding fell on the shoulders of one Doug Demarco, who played the role of Anthony. And brood he did. Intensely, obsessively, with all the range of A to B in his performance. One of three movies ol' Dougie was in during his long Hollywood career. Ah, the virtue of raw talent.

    So Tom and Doug made a real mess of this movie, dragged it down to the fetid hippo pool of movie history. Fully half the movie involves long, lingering shots of Doug's brooding face or monologues meant to be so terribly serious they sink with the kind of gravity never seen outside of collapsed stars. Why then a generous 2.8 from the folks at IMDB?

    In a word, babes. In two, nekkid babes. In four, lots of nekkid babes. Lots equals eight. There is a ninth but I wearied of the task because the transfer of this fine opus from videotape to DVD is so inept, I presume it was done by Tom Boka, himself. So let's settle on eight and call it a draw.

    Six of the eight get nekkid as part of a dance troupe that entertains at a seaside hotel/nightclub where Anthony washes up. I think. I mean I think he washed up there although that is never made plain. And the gals don't really dance, even though they are credited as dancers. They just more or less lie around in a heap on stage while four or five people at tables watch them. I can imagine being part of that heap would be a righteous good time, but watching The Heap? Not much fun at all.

    The six in question are

    Two other women also get and stayed nekkid for very long periods of time. They are the objects of Anthony's desire and the source of his brooding.

    One is played by Gwen Somers. Gwen is a most unlikely figure in B movies. She gave up major goodies in a dozen erotic thrillers, but she is neither drop-dead gorgeous nor particularly well-endowed. And she can sing pretty darn well. So, anyway Gwen is in a sport-humping scene that was just too hard to cap and she is in a second scene where she lies about, upside down, completely unclothed and talks of things mysterious and philosophical... for 3 1/2 minutes. The scene blows by any objective criterion, but in the annals of cinerma nakedness it is topped in length only by Fionnula Flanagan's performance in James Joyce's Women. Something to be proud of, I'm sure.

    • Gwen Somers (1, 2)

    Second object d'affection is Mihaella Stoicov, who is otherwise credited as Michaela Stoicov. But what's in a name? Mihaella is a raven-haired, slim beauty who lies around completely naked (collages 1-4) and manages to give us a look at her holiest of holies whilst climbing out of bed (collage 5). A bravura performance.

    • Mihaella Stoicov (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    Let's ask the crucial question: what would it take to get me to watch Anthony and his interminable brooding again. Well, you could make it a snuff film and blow away Anthony and the guy who played him (Doug, remember?). Maybe then this pain in my head would go away. Or you could turn Gwen around, have her move a bit and shut her up for the 3 1/2 minutes she's naked. Or both? But I'm afraid that is not enough. Seems the only way to make this one worthy of a return visit would be cast Nikki Cox, Heather Graham, Eva Green and Ludivine Sagnier as the naked dancers and then put me in the middle of the group grope. All four of them. Three and the deal is off.

    'Caps and comments by PAL:

    They've aired a lot of old movies on TV recently...

    Getting started with the oldest, there is Jane Fonda in the French movie "Les Felins" (1963). Perhaps that's her first topless scene.

    Going on with Judy Brown in "Slaughter's Big Rip-Off" (1973), a great full frontal.

    Finally, from the newest of these old are Lola Falana and Jeannie Bell in "The Klansman" (1974), both going topless.

    Pat's comments in yellow...

    Or In Many Cases, 31 - Here's a news flash: teenagers can't fully reason. According to a study by the National Institutes of Health and UCLA, the last areas of the brain to mature are those responsible for reasoning, problem-solving, decision-making and other higher rational functions. This doesn't happen until sometime between ages 18 and 21. The author said that until now, no one had proven that complex thinking must wait until simple brain areas mature, so teenagers just can't think rationally.

  • Still, we all knew this...Everyone except teenagers, of course.
  • The teenagers' response: "What-ever."
  • This is why teenagers think the best way to get a raise in their allowance is to scream, "I hate you!!"
  • This explains why teenagers thought Britney Spears was a singer.

    The Robin Williams Policy - Lloyd's Of London, known for its bizarre celebrity insurance policies on things like J-Lo's butt, now offers chest hair insurance. It was inspired by a call from an unnamed celebrity whose career depends on an image of manliness. It pays $1.8 million (US) if the claimant loses 85 percent of chest hair through accident. However, it doesn't cover loss due to illness, nuclear contamination, terrorism, mass destruction, war, invasion, revolution, skin-diving, hunting on horseback, or hang-gliding. And fire-eaters are excluded.

  • Fortunately, they tend to get their image of manliness from EATING FIRE.
  • Looks like Austin Powers can never go hang-gliding, baby.
  • So if there were nuclear war, terrorism, invasion, revolution and mass destruction, a Hollywood actor's biggest worry be losing his chest hair?
  • The unnamed celebrity who started this: Rosie O'Donnell.

    Never Should've Left The Ted Nugent Tour - MSNBC reports that crew members on Paul McCartney's tour are up in arms because the vegetarian star has banned all his employees from eating meat. One worker in Norway said "it's completely crazy" to expect them to work from 8 to 8 every day on nothing but salad and vegetarian food. He defies the ban and sneaks in his own lunch with meat. The crew is also prohibited from wearing leather belts and shoes.

  • They might be tempted to eat them.
  • On the bright side, they can smoke all the pot they want.
  • I thought roadies loved vegetarian food: Twinkies, Ho-Ho's, Ring-Dings...
  • They may quit and go work for Ozzy Osbourne: he lets them eat any animal they want.

    Hey Scoops,

    While the Pistons were up by 513 points in the fourth quarter, I decided to channel surf a bit. I came across "Joe Shmoe 2" on Spike TV and was amazed by the body of Jana Speaker (she plays the blonde bitch roll on the show). Does anyone have any 'caps from this? She was breath taking in her bikini!

  • Here is a pic of her at the "Master and Commander" premiere.
