Scarecrow
2 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Audrey Dalton stars as an Irish mail-order bride named Meg in a rural North Carolina town called Dark Hollow who marries a weak-willed man named Hugo(played by Warren Oates) who is under the thumb of his violent and dominating father Ortho(played by Denver Pyle) who ends up killed by Meg and stuffed into a scarecrow. When her "brother" Sean(played by Sean McClory) arrives in town, it sets off a chain-of-events that seem to point that a local legend called the Hollow Watcher has arisen to avenge itself, and it sure looks like it could be Ortho... Interesting episode has a fine performance by Dalton anchoring this somewhat rambling story. An avenging scarecrow was much better handled in excellent 1981 TV movie called "Dark Night Of The Scarecrow".
