There’s a new Scarecrow in town, and he’s heading to AFM courtesy of Terrestrial Pictures. Written and directed by Joseph Bat, this iteration of the scarecrow legend is inspired by the power of myth and classic creature feature horror.
Much of the film’s storyline is not being revealed at this time, but we do know it revolves around an evil scarecrow coming to life and terrorizing a small town whose fate lies in the hands of a group of adolescents. To its credit, the film is aimed toward mature audiences.
The mythos of Bat’s Scarecrow is based on the following: If a scarecrow falls off its cross on All Hallow’s Eve and touches the ground, it can be possessed by a spirit. Embodied in the scarecrow’s primitive human shape, the resurrected spirit can then proceed to settle scores left unresolved before death.
The filmmakers provided us with a promotional trailer that plays more like an extended clip (it’s a good six minutes long) and the still you see below. Check out the official Scarecrow website, and keep it here for all the latest news from AFM, which runs November 4-11 in Santa Monica, California.
