Did You Know?

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 »
Danny Walker:Aren't you guys afraid of the curse of Curtis Danko?
Dayna:Yes... and no. It all happened before we were born... and with Curtis Danko all locked up and, Halloween all put away and forgotten... they all feel pretty safe... but they don't want to feel safe. They actually want to feel just a little bit scared. Even if it's just for one night.
Danny Walker:Why?
Dayna:Because... If you don't get to survive being scared as a kid, how are you ever going to survive being scared as an adult? When there's so much more to be scared of.

This is a great movie for getting into the Halloween spirit., 28 October 2005
Author: chocolatcheez from Canada

I am a Halloween fanatic and this is defiantly my favorite Halloween movie. The small town atmosphere definitely brings it together and there's a little humor and a little gruesome part, although you don't see it. I only have one problem with the deceased Curtis Danko because he looks way too fake. I have enjoyed this movie since it came out because of the way it puts me into the Halloween mood and is a great way to get ideas for any decorations, party ornaments or just an exciting film to watch at home or with friends. I think R.L Stine definitely pulled this one off.

This is a great family movie thats enjoyable for almost any age.
