Directed by veteran novelist Frank De Felitta from a script by J. D. Feigelson, ''Dark Night of the Scarecrow'' is a suspense/horror 1981 made-for-television film airing on {{CBS}}. According to Editor Aaron Crowell Managing of [=HorrorHound=] Magazine, the movie was the first feature length horror film with a scarecrow as its centerpiece, with many having copied this image in the superseding years, giving Feigelson credit as the entire “killer scarecrow” genre.
