‘Some things don’t die…’
Dark Night of the Scarecrow 2 is a 2022 American horror film and a very belated sequel to the TV movie Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981).

Written, produced, directed and co-edited by J.D. Feigelson (writer of the original).

The movie stars Amber Wedding, Aiden Shurr, Carol Dines, Adam Snyder, Tim Gooch and Richard Seng.

When Chris Rhymer, and her young son Jeremy, are forced to relocate to a small, rural community, they have no idea of the past terror that their presence re-awakens…


“Although Feigelson’s new story is essentially self-contained, it refers back to the first film in ways that ought to satisfy its fans (who should definitely be out there). We briefly see a picture of Larry Drake’s poor, hapless Bubba Ritter and implying the Scarecrow adopted his name is definitely a nice touch. Yet, perhaps not-so-weirdly, the sequel would probably work better as a TV movie, because it will be too tame for contemporary horror fans.” J.B. Spins

Dark Night of the Scarecrow 2 will be released on DVD by VCI Entertainment in the USA on May 10th 2022.
