Storyline

Susan Murphy (a.k.a. Ginormica) and the Monsters are now working with the US government as special ops. So when an alien presence is detected in Susan's hometown of Modesto, California -- right before Halloween -- the team is dispatched to investigate. Everything appears normal, right down to the jack-o-lanterns peering out from every doorstep and windowsill. But when Halloween arrives, those innocent-looking carved pumpkins reveal themselves for what they really are mutant aliens. The altered pumpkins then start to implement their fiendish plan to take over Earth. The Monsters are there to combat the mutant gourds and try to smash their wicked scheme!

A new Halloween classic is born!
1 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Halloween special is even better than the movie from which the characters come from! Part homage to the movie Gremlins, this half hour special has lots of quirky humor and thrills as well as references to adult classics (think theme from Halloween and Psycho) that keeps the pace zipping along. Well plotted and funny enough to prevent it from being scary to the little ones make this a must-see! In short, a UFO dumps its sewage onto a farmer's pumpkin patch and the resultant pumpkins come to life, inflicting "terror", mischief and mayhem on a town. it's up the monsters from MvA to come to the rescue. Good show! My kids wanted to see it again immediately.
