Factual errors: James at his grandfather's (Uncle Fred) funeral, when talking to his dad he refers to Cape Canaveral as Cape Kennedy, but it had not been called that in decades. The name was changed back to Cape Canaveral and The Kennedy Space Center is located there.See more »

Ghouls galore, 21 October 2001
Author: Sheldon Aubut from United States

A wonderful imaginative and fun Halloween story. Of course one must suspend belief for a while, but it is worth watching. Christopher Lloyd is his usual manic self, and brings life to what would be a typical zombie/monster movie without his energized performance.

When 12 year old Danny Walker moves to his Patriarchal home town in Minnesota he finds that the town does not celebrate Halloween, and things are not quite what they appear to be.

An enjoyable movie that may be destined to be a Halloween classic.
