Storyline

Susan Murphy (a.k.a. Ginormica) and the Monsters are now working with the U.S. Government as special ops. So when an alien presence is detected in Susan's hometown of Modesto, California, right before Halloween, the team is dispatched to investigate. Everything appears normal, right down to the jack-o-lanterns peering out from every doorstep and windowsill. But when Halloween arrives, those innocent-looking carved pumpkins reveal themselves for what they really are, mutant aliens. The altered pumpkins then start to implement their fiendish plan to take over Earth. The Monsters are there to combat the mutant gourds and try to smash their wicked scheme.

Goofs

As the alien spacecraft flies away from the pumpkin farm, there is an aerial view of farmer Jeb leaving his barn. In front of him, there is a cone of light from the lamp he is holding. But rather than a torch it is the type of lamp that throws the light out in all directions. So there would have been a pool of light around him as he came out the barn door. See more »

fun short and sweet

The gang goes to Susan's hometown of Modesto, California after an alien presence is detected right before Halloween. An alien ship had flushed onto a patch of pumpkins mutating them into monsters. The group must battle the candy eating pumpkins on Halloween night.

This is a 30 minute Halloween special. The gang has great chemistry together. It's a smaller simplified version of the movie. It's a fun group especially BOB. The fact that it is smaller and simplified may actually help it. It doesn't feel overstretched. The setup was easy. The characters do some jokes. There's a bit of action, and they win in the end. It's a fun watch for 30 minutes.
