Syfy unleashes Scarecrow this October; teaser trailer is here

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Syfy will be celebrating Halloween all throughout October (just like the rest of us), and kicking things off will be SCARECROW, an original thriller starring Lacey Chabert, Nicole Munoz, Robin Dunne and Brittney Wilson. The network has unleashed a teaser trailer for the movie, showing off all kinds of CG scarecrow shenanigans.

For generations, it was an urban legend that lived in the nightmares of children. Now, the season to rejuvenate the tale will revive a town’s darkest fears. With the Scarecrow Festival on the horizon, school teacher Aaron Harris is doling out punishment for six students serving detention, including the moody Tyler, Goth girl Nikki, wrestling team captain Daevon, and straight-A student Jun. Their task: help Aaron’s girlfriend Amanda fix her family farm before it’s sold. But the cornfields circling the farm come with a legend-and Tyler takes macabre delight in recounting the tale: It never sleeps, it never dies, it can’t be stopped, hear their cries. The Scarecrow lives to kill us all. Keep it buried in the fall…

SCARECROW airs on October 5th.
