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 »

Kept me watching
26 October 2008 | by guilfisher-1See all my reviews

This was not a bad movie. Some of it was predictable but so what. I liked the idea and for Halloween it's a good offer. Teen slashers are always produced with the same thought. Good looking young actors, girls in skimpy outfits, screaming, and blood and guts. This one doesn't let you down. However, there were some victims I could hardly wait for their demise, they were that annoying. Won't go into the story as that has been reviewed enough. I did like the old man who was stalking and making himself menacing. I also liked Michael Zara. Sort of reminded me of the guy who plays superman on TV. He had a hard part to play and did a fairly good job. Plus he's a good looker on top. The sister annoyed me. Also the girl friend who screams very well. And that's about it. I give it a 2 for the old man and Zara.
