Dean: “Dude, you fugly.”
I will never be able to look at a strawman again! Kudos to the costume and makeup departments for making such an evil-looking scarecrow and forever ruining “The Wizard of Oz” for me. :p
But beyond the monster’s ugly mug, this episode is also heavy on the creepy. Here’s another one that reminds me of a chapter from the Twilight Zone. You’re taking a trip with your significant other and stop for gas in small town America. The people are friendly…too friendly. They fatten you up like rams before a slaughter, and send you out into the corn fields to your death. The worst part is – the whole town can hear your screams – and no one does anything.
Aside from the legitimately heart-pounding scenes where the scarecrow-god is chasing and nabbing people in the dark, the scariest part for me is when Dean gets up on that ladder right next to the thing’s face. Perhaps it’s the wind, but I swear I can see it moving ever so slightly, every single time. Nothing should look that creepy in the daylight.
Lessons: 1) be wary of the kindness of strangers, 2) stay away from fugly scarecrows, and 3) don’t go into the corn fields at night!
