Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981) directed by Frank De Felitta- I was actually surprised that this was a made for TV movie (debuted on October 24, 1981) for CBS! It was surprisingly good.
A man is wrongly blame and killed for a crime that he didn’t commit. He then acts out his revenge from beyond the grave ….or does he?
I am pretty sure that this kind of made for TV movie wouldn’t be shown on a major network channel but in the early 80’s CBS took a chance at the horror genre and totally did not disappoint!
