bad but not the worst out there, 31 August 2013
Author: markcope1981 from us

this film is about linda an aspiring actress who goes to babysit on halloween night to babysit the kid is named chris who keeps pulling dark disturbing pranks on her a killer named malcom who is christophers real father comes over and terror happens the film is basically a clumsy mash up of fright 1971 halloween 1978 with a dash of nightmare 1981 i don't hate it but i don't love it either pros the final girl is likable even if she is dumb the acting is good halloween 1978 was good but it didn't feel like halloween this film has the halloween feel that film didn't have humorous at times cons poor lighting weak killer more comedy than horror low body count too many pranks and false scares i didn't like the end over oll you could at least see it once then buy a good movie but have this for a laugh at how chessy it is
