Ten stories are woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.
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.
A video artist looking for work drives to a remote house in the forest to meet a man claiming to be a serial killer. But after agreeing to spend the day with him, she soon realizes that she made a deadly mistake.
Named "the best horror anthology since Trick 'r Treat" by Fangoria and "among the best Halloween-themed horror movies ever made" by DailyDead, this critically acclaimed film weaves together ten chilling tales from horror's top directors. Ghosts, ghouls, monsters, and the devil delight in terrorizing unsuspecting residents of a suburban neighborhood on Halloween night.Written by

In the Friday the 31st segment, both characters of Dorothy and the killer cut off one another's arms but you can see Jennifer Wenger's arm as well as the bulge behind his back on Nick Principe where his actual arm is. See more »

I really do feel like it could have been something along the vein of Trick r Treat. As it is, the stories seem sort of dull, sort of charming, sort of funny, sort of entertaining... They don't really inspire too much passion, and they don't really stand apart from each other too much either. I definitely wish that I had liked it more, I found it merely okay. It's definitely not bad though, it deserves a watch definitely. And the halloween atmosphere is definitely there. I do think there was potential for more. The stories are mostly not really scary, and they do seem to go for gross outs more than horror, which is fine. Overall, definitely a decent way to sort of spend the time with friends.
