Pretty gutsy movie, and fun, but not too scary
1 November 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I rate it high because what it tried to be: a true Halloween holiday movie. Just like Christmas has all possible versions of movies made for it, Halloween just had to have one and this is it. So, for what it is worth, I grade high an original and fun movie that is clearly different from what I had expected.

This being said, it is not a single story, but four, all interwoven with minimal contact points. The plots themselves are fun, but not terribly scary; instead, it is the atmosphere that this is all about. However, I couldn't shake the Stories from the Crypt/Twilight Zone feel, and in the end I can imagine this film as one extended episode of any of the fore-mentioned shows. Once it hit me that this is how it is going to be, I started predicting outcomes and stopped being surprised.

Bottom line: Halloween is exposed as any other great holiday, a pretext for people to fornicate, play the fool, hunt their victims or be unhappy, hiding their secrets. The spirit of All Hallow's Eve has something else in mind, though, and that kind of lifts the movie out from the boring.

I really liked the H-monster, if I can call it thus, both deadly and innocent, child like, but completely alien; something after my own heart.
