A newly-married couple purchases an old house in the odd community of Salem Farms, Massachusetts with plans of opening a bed and breakfast. Although they've run out of money, that's the least of their worries. Hidden below the house is something left over from Puritan days. It's a menacing, walking, talking - SCARECROW MAN! His name is Endecott and over the centuries, he's managed to frighten away all comers. However, these Putnam's refuse to budge. Halloween night is their open house and the scarecrow has set a midnight deadline. Neighbors and guests turn out to be a loony bunch and when a dangerous killer escapes from the nearby correctional institution and passes himself off as a "Rent-a-Guest," this tongue-in-cheek comedy really takes off.
