Descripción del producto
Widely considered to be one of the scariest TV movies ever made. When young Marylee Williams (Tonya Crowe) is found viciously mauled, all hell breaks loose in her small rural town. Officious postmaster Otis P. Hazelrigg (Charles Durning) leads a gang of bigots in pursuit of the suspect: her mentally challenged friend Bubba Ritter (Larry Drake). Finding him hiding inside a scarecrow, they exact brutal mob "justice"...only to discover a tragic mistake! Now a strange apparition stalks the land seeking each of them out, as the legend of the Scarecrow begins.

The Story: Bubba an intellectually disabled man, is friends with a young girl named Marylee. One day Marylee is attacked and mauled to death. 4 not so intelligent men believe that Bubba killed Marylee. After a chase Bubba is shot to death while hiding in a scarecrow. Now in court the 4 men lie and say that Bubba attacked them with a pitchfork which is a lie. One of the 4 men also kill Bubba's mother. Each man who has committed the deed begin to die off. Who is killing them off? Is it Marylee, Bubba's mother, or the scarecrow? Well, watch the film and find out.
The Good: Very suspenseful, atmospheric, well acted, well written, well filmed, everything about it is good.
The Bad: This film is underrated.
Fun Facts: Larry Drake plays Bubba, he would go on to play Dr.Giggles and Durrant in the first 2 Darkman films. Dark Night of the Scarecrow started the killer scarecrow sub genre.

Creepy Moments: The film over all has a creepy tone, especially in the end scene. When Marylee says hello to the scarecrow (possessed by Bubba you could say), the scarecrow sort of turns it's head and it's very inhuman something that adds to the effect, it's a quick head turn and inside the mouth hole and eye holes of the scarecrow it's just pitch black. The scene is also heart warming as the scarecrow gives Marylee a flower.
The film is very emotional and does have an affect on the viewer. Dark Night of the Scarecrow is a treat to watch especially during the Halloween season which it aired on TV in 1981 on October 24th.
Dark Night of the Scarecrow is a very solid film and so I give it 5/5 stars.

A clever mystery combined with the suspense of a creepy ghost story, 'Dark Night of the Scarecrow' delivers just enough goosebumps to give the viewer second thoughts about those silent, straw sentinels of the cornfields! One of my favorite 'made-for-television' horror movies! I just had to have this one on Blu Ray!!! Thanks so much for a great addition to my film library!!!
