This is the best  Thumbup :thumbup:movie I ever saw ok it took me a while to find it and I dont think I ever would have seen it again if it weren't for the internet javascript:void(0);
BounceGigglet BounceGiggle BounceGiggle BounceGiggle. Please review this masterpiece of a horror film. Its right up there with Saloms lot since they  would show these around Halloween on TBS in the 80s.

Dark Night of the Scare Crow --- super rare film from TBS by TBS and I was looking for it in this forum about 5 years back and no one knew about it. Cheers

From the Psychotronic Video Guide:
" DARK NIGHT of the SCARECROW(1981) D.Frank De Flitta  S:J.D.Feigalson P: Bobbie Frank
This CBS-TV movie is often shown on Halloween.A small-town postman (Charles Durning) reluctantly leads a vigalante group stalking a harmless retarted man (Larry Drake) blamed for the killing of a young girl.His ghost returns. With Claude Earl Jones,Joeclyn Brando,and Lane Smith.The director is a horror novelist. "
 
.Think I read one of De Flitta's books before...can't remember what,but the name rings some faint bells. Larry Drake,of course,went on to play in DARKMAN and Dr.GIGGLES. I vagualy remeber seeing this on TV,but nothing too remarkable stands out.

It's a great example of what tele-films were capable of in the 70s.  The s**t that gets broadcast nowadays is an insult to the memory of that period in tv history.

DARK NIGHT, for myself, is in a very small group of tv films that prove that some actual cinematic and dramatic know-how can make up for any budgetary restrictions you might have.

DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK is another stellar example.  Some years back, as I began to hunt down childhood cult film favorites, I was bowled over by the widespread affection I encountered for the Kim Darby film, let alone DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW.

There is an entire generation of us floating around who know of a mythical time when real filmmakers knew how to use the television medium.

TRILOGY of TERROR was a favorite TV movie. I recall DON't BE AFRAID of the DARK and it's creepy little ghoulie type things,hiding behind stairway bannisters and such. I remember a TV movie called DAUGHTER of the MIND,I think,with Pam Ferdin(?)...the girl from LAND of the LOST TV show,and the horror movie TOOLBOX MURDERS. Lemme see...if I can get the Wayback Machine to work...
FRANKENSTIEN: the TRUE STORY-preetycool 2 part( I think) movie with Micheal Sarazan...
I recall won with Andy Griffith (!) where he hunted people with  animals...? Mebbe II'll have  to ask about that one in WHAT MOVIE>>>? thread...
 the NIGHT STALKER,of course!
 the NIGHT STRANGLER-was a follow up TV movie to the above,with Kolchack hunting for a agless strangler in the underground city beneath S.F.
 the WEREWOLF of WOODSTOCK-all I recall of this was the werewolf getting killed by lightining(?).
 BAD RONALD- About a crazy artist/ teenager who lived in the walls(?) of an old house....My Dad used to joke and call me Bad Ronald after this whenever I showed him some of my weird artwork! Smile

i remember seeing this movie. My recurring thought while watching it was poetic justice.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
