Dark Night of the Scarecrow was originally a made for TV movie. Considering such a thing, this is actually a decent movie. I have fond memories of watching this when I was a kid, and it was pretty creepy for its time.
It's definitely entertaining. From the ridiculous dialog, the weird cast (Mr. Hazelrigg), and surprising ending, it's a definite movie to watch for a B-Move fanatic. If anything, it really goes to show us that Southern Lynch mobs, beer, and guns never amount to anything good. Anyway, if you like some pretty shoddy B-Movies, but also have a decent story, then this one is right up your corn field.
