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

A creative "B" horror flick
15 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the theater on it's opening night (a preview). I've got to say, it has a very creative plot twist right out of the gate which I think sets it aside from most of the low budget, predictable horror flicks. There are a lot of fun, weird kill scenes (my favorite killing is the guy who gets it at the pumpkin patch). Okay, so we're not seeing any big movie stars running around in this movie, but you can't gage a horror movie on it's star power. It's a low budget hack and slasher but it's right up there with all the other low budget hack and slashers. I believe this movie has the potential to become one of those popular, underground horror flicks. A nice rental...
