Dark Night of the Scarecrow is a 1981 horror film directed by Frank De Felitta and stars Larry Drake, Charles Durning, and Lane Smith. The film was originally meant to be an independent feature but was purchased by CBS – turning it into a made for television film. The film was released on Saturday October 24, 1981 - as part of their Halloween line-up – and was very well received by critics and audiences. Dark Night of the Scarecrow is credited to have started the horror subgenre of the killer scarecrow.
Despite being a made for television film, it got a VHS release through Key Video in the mid 80’s, as well as a DVD and Blu-Ray in 2011. The film was screened as part of the Texas Frightmare Weekend in 2010 to much fanfare and was shown on The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs on Shudder on June 31, 2023.
