    "The long-awaited Dark Night Of The Scarecrow DVD is now available for pre-order on Amazon — the official release date is listed as September 28, 2010!

    Bonus features include: Director & Writer Commentary, Original World Premiere Trailer

    When young Marylee Williams (Tonya Crowe) is found viciously mauled, all hell breaks loose in her small rural town. Officious postmaster Otis P. Hazelrigg (Charles Durning) leads a gang of bigots in pursuit of the suspect: her mentally challenged friend Bubba Ritter (Larry Drake). Finding him hiding inside a scarecrow, they exact brutal mob “justice”…only to discover a tragic mistake! Now a strange apparition stalks the land seeking each of them out, as the legend of the Scarecrow begins."

    My Mother was in the hospital at the time.She's better now.
     
  8. On the Dark Night Of The Scarecrow dvd page on amazon.com theres an interview with JD Feigelson and at the end of it (its about 4 minutes long) he mentions that he keeps getting asked about a sequel to the movie and he says stay tuned.Very interesting that hes actually thinking of doing another one...

    More info from DVDdrive-in.com!:

    "VCI is proud to announce a special DVD release of one of "the best made for television horror films ever!" (Donald Guarisco, AMG Review) DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW has achieved a cult status and spawned multiple fansites pushing for the DVD release! When young Marylee Williams (Tonya Crowe) is found viciously mauled, all hell breaks loose in her small rural town. Officious Post Master Otis P. Hazelrigg (Charles Durning) leads a gang of bigots in pursuit of the suspect, her mentally challenged friend Bubba Ritter (Larry Drake). Finding him hiding inside a scarecrow, they exact brutal mob “justice”…only to discover a tragic mistake! Now a strange apparition stalks the land seeking each of them out, and the legend of the Scarecrow begins. DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW has been remastered in high definition from the 35mm negative with a new 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound Mix. Plus the disc will include a never-before-seen deleted scene that was added back in the movie. Special Features include a commentary with director Frank De Felitta and writer J.D. Feigelson, plus the original CBS promo for the movie, as well English and Spanish subtitles. The disc streets on 9/28/10 and will retail for $19.99."

    I wonder if this "never-before-seen deleted scene" is the newly additional shot footage added to the ending? ;)

    Booooooo

    Feigelson stated that they have spent the last several months digitally remastering the original Panavision film in HD for the DVD.

    If it's been remastered in HD Why not release it in HD :confused:

    Anybody heard if VCI's reissue of RUBY is gonna be 16/9 this time around ? I have the old disc but would double dip if this new version (paired with KISS OF THE TARANTULA) is anamorphic.I left a message on their site a week ago but have yet to hear back from them.
