After the death of her father under very suspicious circumstances, Ellie Grimbridge and Dr Daniel Challis decide to investigate the shady activities of Conal Cochran, the owner of the Silver Shamrock Novelties company. Before long, they discover Cochran's diabolical plot to brainwash the children of America into doing his bidding through a mixture of ancient rituals, technology, and witchcraft. This Halloween, wearing the mask of a skeleton, a witch, or a pumpkin can be deadly. Can Ellie and Daniel thwart the plans of the evil toy-maker?Written by

[walking through an alley, he bumps into Starker]
Mister-Mister, didn't mean to scare you. I saw that bottle, I thought it looked pretty heavy. I ain't got no diseases, you mind if I have a drink?
[Dan hands him the bottle; Starker takes a huge swig]
Mmm, aw damn. Thank you.

1998 Goodtimes DVD release omits several sound effects for some unknown reason, including the stinger when the assassin appears to watch Ellie and Challis enter the factory, and the dial tone when Challis and Teddy are on the phone to each other before the above scene. Additionally, when Walter Jones is in the hospital explaining how he first encountered Harry Grimbridge, an overhead page is heard stating "Miss Scott call admitting". This appears in the version that sporadically airs on Cinemax, but not on the 2001 Goodtimes release. See more »
Everything about this movie reeks of the 80s. I know there's a lot of nostalgia these days about the 80s, but this move isn't a part of it. The 80s really weren't that great and neither is this movie. It tarnishes the franchise and it's only connection to it is in name.
