The first television scarecrow (no. 57)
20 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Another sterling entry with a fine cast. In Black Hollow, North Carolina, Hugo Wheeler (Warren Oates) has taken a mail-order bride from Ireland, Meg O'Danagh (Audrey Dalton), much to the chagrin of his disapproving father Ortho (Denver Pyle). During an argument one night, Meg kills Ortho then hides the corpse in a nearby scarecrow, telling Hugo that his father ran off without them. In time, the local townsfolk come to believe that the two murdered the old man for his money, and are surprised by a new visitor to Black Hollow: Meg's brother Sean, who is in actuality her lover (played by Sean McClory,later in episode 67 "The Specialists"). As the locals whisper fearfully about "the hollow watcher," a demon that always leaves behind the remnants of a corpse, the scarecrow mysteriously edges closer and closer to the Wheeler home. Is there a rational explanation or is the supernatural involved? Audrey Dalton makes the last of her three episodes (the others being 10 "The Prediction" and 20 "Hay-Fork and Bill-Hook"), while Warren Oates had appeared in 13 "Knock-Three-One-Two." Walter Burke, as one of the townspeople, would later appear in episode 64 "Man of Mystery."
