Name That Trauma :: Reader Nicholas L. on a Scarecrow Snitch

July 16th, 2009 by aunt john · 4 Comments

I was very young when I saw this, in fact, I have told many people that it is my first memory ever.

It’s a scene where a lady and a man are running from a large group of men. This is taking place in the woods (I think). The man and women come to a clearing and hide behind something. They notice a strange looking scarecrow with one eye and I think the eye is slightly looking at them. When the group after them comes to the clearing they are trying to find out which way the couple went. All of a sudden the scarecrow’s eyes open wide and there is a ringing sound. I believe the scarecrow is pointing at the man and woman with both arms. The group sees them and the running continues.

To make everything a little more traumatic the scarecrow’s face is very monkey-like. Could be a PLANET OF THE APES variation or something, but I have never been able to find it. I don’t know what I’d do if you found it, but I know how amazing you are at finding this stuff.

Thanks for your time and efforts!!

UPDATE: NAME THAT TRAUMA SOLVED! Thanks to Reader Ab-Normal for solving it with LIVE AND LET DIE.

It sounded to me like SCARECROWS until you mentioned the monkey face.

Could it be Dark Night Of The Scarecrow? I know there was a lynch mob and a sort-of simian-faced scarecrow in it.

I think this could be the James Bond film ‘Live and Let Die’ There are monkey looking scarecrows, one with only one eye. Bond and a Girl being chased past them and them moving with a whurring sound. Their arms don’t move but a gun does extend from one of their mouths…scared me when I was little! Pics here
