Storyline

It's Halloween in West Minister, and teenager Lynn Starks is attacked by a man wearing a pumpkin face mask in the basement of her house. Her younger brother Jonathan is carving a pumpkin in the kitchen and hears her sister crying for help. He uses the knife to protect his sister, stabbing the assaulter. When they take the mask off his face, they realize that the man is Lynn's boyfriend Alec, playing a prank on Lynn. One year later, the siblings move to Carver, and they are invited to a Halloween party in the field. Lynn introduces her friend Tammy to her brother, who is haunted by Alec, and Jonathan stays with Tammy. However, her former boyfriend Lance bullies Jonathan along the night. Meanwhile, several youngsters are attacked by someone wearing a Pumpkin Face mask, carving their faces. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great flick
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the Pumpkin Karver last night when a friend recommended it to me. I thought it was really good, much better then most of this seasons horror releases. My friends and I have been watching almost all of the seasonal horror flicks for 12 years since we got out of college. The 12 of us all liked this movie, especially the clarity of the photography and the story line. Much more than I expected from a low budget film. With the massive amount of this years releases our team has not yet viewed all of the new films yet but so far this film is a top favorite. I highly recommend it. I will report back when we finish with the other films we watch. Scott
