Jack O'Boring
4 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Tiresome, done a million times before boring direct-to-video horror yarn, from Lions Gate endless vaults of crappy fright flicks. This one takes place on Halloween and tells some sort of revenge story with a supernatural twist. Blah! Before you can say "I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997), because that's when you guys blatantly ripped off Pumkinhead's (1989) plot line!" you'll also notice they stole from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and Halloween (1978) as well. Not in a good way I might add: A snooze-inducing patchwork wanna-be terror tale that is neither scary, entertaining and far from being original. The badness of this movie simply sucks, leaving no room for making fun of it. Jack O'Lantern is just another sad example of cheese gone sour, with no redeeming whatsoever. Do yourself a favor and look for cheese with flavor. This one won't deliver.
