Cornfield Clem was a disguise used by Abner to keep people away from the corn maze. He looked like a normal scarecrow with a burlap sack head, glowing red eyes, and long arms made of hay. He could extend his arms out to great distances and seemed to be quite adept at wielding a scythe. According to legend, Cornfield Clem was a scarecrow brought to life by a witch who was run out of town, cursed to haunt the town every year at Halloween time. Abner had previously stolen money and buried it in an open field, only to return to discover the field had grown into a massive cornfield. He used the legend to keep people away from the corn maze while he searched for his stolen money.
