  1. We remember seeing this one when it premiered....
    ... one scene that stuck in my young mind for years... was when he killed the other "conspirator" with a shovel .. when he drew back again the poor guy's bloody hat was still stuck to the shovel... rather gruesome effect for a TV show...

    1. Yeah that is a creepy scene and awesome movie. The first and one of the few good Scarecrow slashers.

  2. I don't suppose you kept an offline version of this original upload, did you? I've been scouring the net trying to find a download of this broadcast, but no luck...
