From The Midnight Pulp Press Release
40 years ago this Sunday, CBS aired a writer/director Frank De Felitta’s made-for-TV horror classic, DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW, starring Academy Award-nominee Charles Durning (TOOTSIE; WHEN A STRANGER CALLS) and Emmy winner Larry Drake (DARKMAN; L.A. LAW). A seminal horror film for a generation of 80s horror kids, DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW remains a rare made-for-TV horror film that is as terrifying as any of the horror classics of the era.To celebrate this horror classic, Midnight Pulp’s linear channel will be airing this fan-favorite tale of a wrongfully-killed man exacting revenge from beyond the grave this Sunday, October 24th, at 9pm EST, with an encore broadcast at 9pm PST (12am EST), airing exactly 40 years to the day and time it ran on the CBS Saturday Night Movie on October 24, 1981 at 9pm EST. Sorry to say that the original commercials will not be part of this airing, but we have plenty of great new ads from awesome sponsors to take their place.
The Midnight Pulp channel is available on Samsung TV Plus (Channel 1445), The Roku Channel, Plex, Stirr (Channel 226) and on the Midnight Pulp app. Check it out here!
