When the brother is unloading the jeep , he asks the sister, "What about the top?" meaning that he wanted to put the top on the Jeep. At the end of the movie, Jeep number 3 has a hard top, not a convertible top. There would have been no way to transport the top of the Jeep . See more »

I recently rented The Pumpkin Karver and although it wasn't the scariest movie I ever saw I thought it was a lot of fun and got me in the Halloween mood. The one thing I really liked was that there was some sort of story, and for a horror film, that's rare. It was basically a "who done it" campy horror film. I thought the acting was good and for a low-budget indi the film, it looked great. The special effects were also good. Overall, I thought the director did a good job of mixing the campy humor with the horror elements and keeping the flow of the film. I don't think the producers of the film were going for a slasher film and that's fine with me because I'm not really into a film with just blood and guts, even though this film has its share of that. It was basically a fun Halloween film with some funny gags, hot chicks, and a few gory scenes. It was well worth the rental and I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to get in the Halloween spirit of things. But if you're expecting the next Saw or Hostal, and non-stop blood flowing on the screen, this film is not for you.
