Five interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband; and a mean old man meets his match with a demonic, supernatural trick-or-treater.

I prefer Halloween movies such as The Nightmare Before Christmas or the movie Halloween, but this is a decent piece of entertainment that is a different take on a Halloween movie. It is a mix of comedy and slasher horror that does well at what it is meant to do.
