Movie Info

This is a '90s version of a good old fashioned B monster movie. It is set in a small rural town that is outwardly upright and peaceful and is inwardly rotten to the core. It seems that in its earliest years, the town fathers made a devil's bargain with a wandering warlock to insure good crops and prosperity for the residents. They soon came to regret the deal and decided to murder the magician and bury his bones in a field. The trouble begins in modern times when the hellish bones are inadvertently unearthed thereby freeing the warlock's evil spirit which immediately takes over a scarecrow and goes on an unequaled killing spree. The strawman's handiwork is discovered by young lovers Claire and Dillon. They soon find themselves pursued by the demonic creature, but eventually they knock the stuffing out of him and destroy the evil spirit, but not before more creative murders and mayhem ensue.

Audience Reviews for Night of the Scarecrow

I got this mixed up with "Dark Night of the Scarecrow"... Which was way better. Fairly dull killer Scarecrow film... But the ending features Stephen Root with a shotgun, a busty chick in a white shirt, and nondescript hero dude taking on the evil Scarecrow. That was amusing as I had no idea how we got there.

76% "Well, hey there."-Scarecrow (Howard Swain) Wasn't to keen on the scarecrow design but the soundtrack rocked.
