Dark Night of the Scarecrow FINALLY coming to DVD!

This movie is not only an old school classic, but it's been one of horror's biggest MIA titles, never having appeared on DVD... until now! Via IMDB: A retarded man is unjustly accused of attacking a young girl. Disguised as a scarecrow, he hides in a cornfield, only to be hunted down and shot. Later, after it is revealed he saved the girl from a vicious dog attack, members of the search posse are killed by a mysterious scarecrow. Originally a made for TV movie, this flick has become one of the biggest cult classics of the horror world, and I for one can't wait until I can finally own it this fall.


  1. I've only ever heard awesome things about this movie, so I can't wait to see it. What is it about those 70s made-for-TV horror movies that makes them so awesome? Seriously...why can't we just go back to the 70s, when Karen Black showed up every week to scare the hell out of everyone?

  2. I think the 70's were just so raw that it made the horror feel better, even on TV.

    To this day, Karen Black still creeps me out in trilogy of terror.
