Storyline

A long long time ago a wizard was put to death, but he swore vengeance on the townsfolk that did him in, particularly Arthur Kelly's family. Arthur had done the final graces on him when he came back to life as Mr. Jack the Pumpkin Man. The Kellys proliferated through the years, and when some devil-may-care teens accidentally unleash Jack-O, young Sean Kelly must stop him somehow as his suburban world is accosted and the attrition rate climbs.

Horrid film
7 October 2001 | by (Evansville, IN) – See all my reviews

The acting is so bad, the actors couldn't even make it in the porn industry. Z grade acting, bad effects. I mean come on. A garage of horrors for charity? Yeah right. The master copy needs to be stored in a nice hot, humid, radioactive cave so it can rot quickly and prevent anyone else from having to see this monstrosity.

MST3K fans will have a field day with this one..
