    Best Made For TV Horror Ever!

    Troykan

    This 1980's made for TV horror movie is simply a delectable and delicious treat for all genre fans alike. The eery atmosphere and well developed narrative combined with outstanding acting and timing make the Dark Night of the Scarecrow an essential acquisition for any serious collection. Both horror fans old and new will enjoy this celebrated contribution to be sure, truly a MUST HAVE title! We need a Blu Ray as well, though the fact that this is the first DVD release of the film ever will simply have to suffice for now.

    I first saw this film at a horror film fest in Chicago couple years ago and fell in love with it. Even though it's a tv for movie it does have great horror icons in it. The film is well worth checking out if you are into old scary films.

    This is such a great classic horror movie, one of the first of its kind. Of course it's a bit cheesy, but it's great nostalgic fun for horror movie lovers!

    I saw this TV-movie when it first aired in 1981, and it holds up splendidly. Scarier than a good many of more recent releases.
