Storyline

It's Halloween in West Minister, and teenager Lynn Starks is attacked by a man wearing a pumpkin face mask in the basement of her house. Her younger brother Jonathan is carving a pumpkin in the kitchen and hears her sister crying for help. He uses the knife to protect his sister, stabbing the assaulter. When they take the mask off his face, they realize that the man is Lynn's boyfriend Alec, playing a prank on Lynn. One year later, the siblings move to Carver, and they are invited to a Halloween party in the field. Lynn introduces her friend Tammy to her brother, who is haunted by Alec, and Jonathan stays with Tammy. However, her former boyfriend Lance bullies Jonathan along the night. Meanwhile, several youngsters are attacked by someone wearing a Pumpkin Face mask, carving their faces. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When the brother is unloading the jeep , he asks the sister, "What about the top?" meaning that he wanted to put the top on the Jeep. At the end of the movie, Jeep number 3 has a hard top, not a convertible top. There would have been no way to transport the top of the Jeep . See more »

Twice during the end credits, the killer's face is shown while he taunts the audience and giggles hysterically. See more »

I was an extra in this movie.
25 October 2006 | by bdearingerbooyahSee all my reviews

I agree with everyone else. This movie was extremely horrible. It was filmed about 4 years ago in my home town, palmdale, CA. If you look in the party scenes, i am the one dressed as the pimp in the purple costume. I have never been in a movie before so i was pretty psyched to see myself. This alone made the hour an a half worth it. I still wont recommend this movie to a lot of people. When i was in it the director told me it might not come out in the states, so when it did it was pretty exciting. If you are with your friends one night and you have nothing to do, and you are bored out of your mind, you should rent it. It makes for a good laugh and you can see how crappy the town i had to grow up in is.
