Black Fawn Distribution Acquires Stoner Horror 'Scarecrows' for May Release

Black Fawn Scarecrows May Release

Way back in 2018, we shared the official trailer for Stu Stone's stoner horror film Scarecrows (now to be confused with William Wesley's 1988 film of the same name), which was released on VOD and DVD by Uncork'd Entertainment here in the states.

Today, we've learned Black Fawn Distribution has acquired the Canadian rights to the cult horror hit, and given the current state of the world, they've moved up the digital release of the film by three months!

Scarecrows is set to debut on all major Canadian digital VOD platforms next Tuesday, May 19th, 2020.

"Originally, the plan was to release Scarecrows this fall," explains Black Fawn Distribution’s Operations Manager CF Benner. "However, we understand that people are doing the right thing by staying home right now and, since we had the ability to move up the release date, we figured why not? This really is a fun horror flick and, as a genre film distributor, it’s our responsibility to get films like Scarecrows out to horror fans, regardless of the circumstances."

In addition, Stone will be taking over Black Fawn's Instagram account next Tuesday (May 19th, 2020) as part of their "Takeover Tuesday" quarantine series. Following the takeover, Stu will be joining Black Fawn for an interview on Facebook Live and Twitch at 7:00 PM (EST). 

In Scarecrows, "While on a hike to find a secret lagoon, four stoners have no choice but to pass through an ominous cornfield. Unbeknownst to them, a psychotic farmer despises trespassers and has vowed to kill anyone who crosses his land by turning them into living scarecrows, leaving them to rot in his fields. Once one goes up... it never comes down."

The film stars Hannah Gordon, Mike Taylor, Umed Amin and Maaor Ziv. Scarecrows was co-written by Stu Stone and Adam Rodness, with Rodness serving as producer.
