I was very young when I saw this, in fact, I have told many people that it is my first memory ever.
Itâ€™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 don’t think it’s DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW… it was a little girl running through the field trying to get away from Charles Durning at the end. I don’t think there was a man and a woman being chased by a mob.
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!
