A little better than average for a Sci-Fi channel movie.
Now, stop me if you heard this one before. A group of college friends decides to take a shortcut through the woods on the way to a Halloween party, whereupon their truck breaks down, and the inbred inhabitants of a small town set upon them. (Amazingly, the Skiffy Channel had to film this in Romania, because apparently they couldn't find one of the inbred redneck towns they seem to think dot the countryside of rural America.)
The discover that the Headless Horseman of legend must collect seven heads every Halloween, in order to preserve the town of accursed souls.
Now, this is pretty much the plot of every bad horror movie you've ever seen. What makes this one better than most? I think the characters were more interesting than they usually are in films like this, which is good. You had Richard Moll playing the proprietor of the general store, which added some comedy to the film.
Overuse of CGI for special effects, but the plot held together reasonably well. Or maybe I've seen so many bad ones that an okay one doesn't offend as much as they normally do.
