Every Tuesday in October 2022, we celebrate scary movies!
“There’s other justice in the world besides the law!”
Kicking off the Halloween season with Dark Night of the Scarecrow, starring the late Charles Durning, Lane Smith, and Jocelyn Brando, about a mysterious being seeking vengeance on a group of murdering bigots.
This supernatural thriller first aired on Halloween night in 1981 and is scarier than any Made-For-TV movie has any right to be. Despite having zero blood and no gruesomeness, this chilling film still holds up today with timely themes such as bigotry, bullying, and injustice.
One thought on “Tuesday Terror – Dark Night of the Scarecrow”
Still a favourite as a reminder of how horror is best fuelled by atmosphere. 🎃
