        This is the proper way to tell a scary story...... by throwing the audience crumbs here and there leading up to a climax as opposed to revealing everything right away. Some of the scariest moments in this were the parts leading up to a great reveal, as opposed to the reveal itself, like the part when the narrator said “then Alfred saw something that terrified him” which left us hanging in suspense for a few seconds until it was revealed that Harold was growing (which was scary too in itself). It was also scary how Harold dances on the roof all day and night and then “stood in a far corner of the pasture” all the next morning and then disappeared and all this was done before he did anything to hurt the men. The parts where you are left hanging wondering what is about to happen are the scariest parts. 90% of the horror films made today need to take a hint.

          This animated fan film is scary the first time around but after it makes a good movie to watch. The ending got me chills and frozen in cold.

                            I really like watching your video I wonder if you could do the scary stories called The Drum about two sisters and the new mother.

                                I thought the new scary stories movie wasn’t that good the way they made it. Should’ve been rated r and just stuck to like a mini series with each episode played by different actors

                                    Am I the only one who thinks... Bear with me now.. That the REAL Harold had eventually just climbed into the scarecrow and murdered the one superstitious idiot?

                                                I remember the library teach showed us this video in third grade. It was the reason for three years after I would wake up at three am to watch YouTube, the first year because I was terrified, the second and third year because I just wanted to watch YouTube.

                                                    When I think back on the story I always think how much more terrifying the end is. Leaving it how it is, will he wear the skin once it dries? Or will he make a new scarecrow. The possibilities
