I really enjoy Night Of The Scarecrow, and I love a lot of the genre films from the early-to-mid 90s. Yes, they were goofy, but they were also fun, something that is sorely lacking in today's indie-genre fare. Everything now is just grim and overly serious.

That said, those who are saying that they hated the mid-90s might want to approach this with caution. I still have the VHS, and it definitely feels like a product of its time. A decent comparison in terms of tone and feel would be Jeff Burr's Pumpkinhead 2 from the previous year. So if you've seen that, it might give you an idea of what to expect.

I definitely don't want to deter anyone from picking this up, because I love that Olive has been releasing films like this, Night Of The Demons 2, and Ticks on blu-ray. I'm just saying to keep your expectations in check. It's not a lost masterpiece, and it doesn't even measure up to NOTD2 or Ticks, but it's simply a fun little '90s genre flick.
