Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981) This is one of those movies that's always on at midnight somewhere across the country. It was the annual "Halloween Movie" on TBS for years, and if you ask a friend about it in passing they'll remember seeing one of its early showings, usually as a child or teenager. Of course, they remember the film for a reason-- it's scary!

In this Frank DeFelitta directed suspense film, a band of small town rednecks hunt down the local town idiot, Bubba (Larry Drake of Dr. Giggles), after he's mistakenly believed to have injured, and perhaps molested, a small girl. They follow him to a corn field, where he's taken refuge inside the clothes of a scarecrow, and shoot him a dozen times. After they are acquitted of the murder, for lack of evidence, the man's mother (played by Jocelyn Brando, Marlon Brando's sister) declares, "There are other justices in the world besides the law!" And in turn each man is killed in a mysterious way--one by a thrashing machine, another smothered by grain in a silo--and it looks as if the scarecrow, possessed by the spirit of the slain retarded man, is the culprit. Exactly who, or what, is responsible, is the movie's clincher. Other than Scarecrows, this is the best killer scarecrow movie ever.
