The wait… is over! The Scarecrow is back with a vengeance. The sequel to J.D. Feigelson’s pitchfork- perfect DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW, “…one of the best made-for-TV horror films ever…” (Donald Guarisco, AMG Review) and one of the highest rated TV movies of all-time is finally here!
Corn rustling, cicadas screaming, a crow watching as a farmer hears strange noises in his barn. He enters and looks around. Nothing. Suddenly a long, sharp scythe whisks through the air catching him between the eyes. Into this environment, Chris Rhymer (Amber Wedding) and her young son Jeremy (Aiden Shurr) have recently moved. It’s a small country town in Stubblefield County. To locals she is a mystery. “Why”, they asked themselves would she move to this backwater? Chris finds work in a country store and Jeremy is watched after school by an older woman, Aunt Hildie (Carol Dines). Hildie and Jeremy form a close relationship at the expense of Chris. One day, while looking for Jeremy, Chris comes upon an old, weather-beaten Scarecrow. Seeing how sad it looks, she puts a flower into its lapel to brighten it up, and thinking it only an inert effigy, she whispers her troubled past life into its seemingly unhearing ear. That night a dark figure enters her room as Chris sleeps and returns the flower. Unrealized by Chris, Jeremy has fallen under the influence of Aunt Hildie. We see that she is manipulating the Scarecrow through Jeremy. With his spirit, mentally challenged in life, the scarecrow only responds to children like Jeremy. Then the terror begins. As locals and Chris’s past come to destroy her, they are met with horror and grisly death from . . . the Scarecrow.
