After witnessing their parents murder as infants, June and Carl have held a deadly secret throughout their entire lives, a secret that none will believe.

Years later, June is back to investigate the family home after her estranged brother Carl’s mysterious suicide. As she walks the grounds and inhabits the house, June learns that the Scarecrow who came to take her family is walking once again and is seeking revenge on the town…


Curse of the Scarecrow did not have redefining elements to its narrative. Yet, the psychological, slasher and supernatural web snared my attention. The characters remain cultivated and illustrated with a strong effort. Sure, there is a hint of poor dialogue but the tale flows well. Screenwriter Shannon Holiday did solid work of placing and establishing detail to the sub-plot.” Decay Mag
