Does anyone else remember this movie?

It was a made for TV movie about a mentally retarded guy accused of attacking a young girl, but really saves her from a dog attack. He hides inside a scarecrow in cornfield, but is found out and then shot.

When the townspeople realize he was wrongly accused, those involved in his death are killed by a scarecrow.

I remember watching it a lot growing up and then it disappeared. Don't think it's on DVD.

Loved this movie for its dark qualities. Scared the crap outta me when I was a kid seeing that scarecrow in the field, especially when they showed its eyes move. I also like the revenge aspect of the movie, those crooked townspeople get what they deserved. [Big Grin] Good flik

I felt sorry for the mentally challenged guy. I liked the whole revenge aspect too. I haven't seen it since I was about 12 or 13....

Just watched Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981)

It was pretty good made for tv-horror flick.
Really slow at times but very atmospheric.
I think that it would have been even creepy if i´d seen this back in the 80s.

Some familiar faces among the cast like Charles Durning and Lane Smith.
They all did a good job.

The dvd will be re-released on September 28, 2010.
