Ben and Julie's annual Halloween Party is about to go off the Richter scale, when their single, high maintenance girlfriend drags in a homeless guy, thinking he's a party goer, because SHE needs an escort. Not only has she dated everyone there; unbeknownst to her, Ben has invited her lame ex-boyfriend in hopes of reuniting them. As she spends the night avoiding her ex, and the other undesirable guys in attendance, she interacts with a colorful assortment of party peeps. Between disappearing fortune tellers and over crowded jacuzzis, she questions if real love is even possible. The irony; the only person she's the least bit attracted to, is the homeless man!

Comedic slice of American life with fabulous sound track!
Halloween Party is fast-paced and funny, with just the right touches of drama, well-spaced throughout the film. The flow is excellent, with so many hilarious scenes my face hurt from laughing so much.
The characters portrayed are so true to life I could identify many of them with people I know. I felt like I was at the party with my friends, neighbors and co-workers along with their dates and significant others.
Halloween Party is a true slice of life in America with a rich array of characters giving powerful insights into their day to day lives. The homeless man and the trick or treaters provide an in depth look at the attitudes, concerns and interactions of everyday Americans today. Very touching scenes.
And the music! I just wanted to get up and dance over and over throughout the film. All music lovers will be delighted with Halloween Party.
