‘Farm-to-table manslaughter’

After coming coming into contact with a radioactive meteorite, Farmer Tony Maio turns into a fierce mutant. Disguised as a scarecrow in order to hide his appearance, he starts to kill people to satisfy his bloodlust…

Scarecrowd was released on DVD in the USA by SRS Cinema on November 21, 2017.



“Coming in at around 75 minutes and with little (especially conversational) dialogue, the film is delightfully bad in just the right way and can firmly be placed in schlocky 80s horror territory with a clear comic book (and fumetti) influence complementing the B-movie nature of the film. Going further however it was a nice surprise to see that writer and director George Nevada manages to insert genuine moments of emotion towards the end of the film…” Cosi Perversa
