Storyline

On the night before Halloween, seventeen year-old Megan and her group of friends are conned into taking part in a prank that accidentally lands their friend Beth in a coma. What Megan and the others don't realize is that their new friend Kyle was intentionally trying to rid himself of the Curse of the Carver: a curse that kills you on the night before Halloween unless you can trick someone into killing another person. One year later, Megan and her friends are brought back together and must fight for their lives against the Curse of the Carver.

Goofs

Megan fires the detective's semiautomatic pistol at the locked "cage" door until the pistol is empty. Then clicking noises are heard as she tries to continue firing. Semiautomatic pistols won't click when they're empty, as the slide will lock to the rear and the firing mechanism is temporarily inoperative until the shooter reloads the pistol. See more »

The Night Before Halloween: Terrible premise, terrible execution
30 July 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Scyfy doesn't do horror very often and on the rare occasion they do they don't have the habit of producing anything even remotely watchable.

Bailee Madison stars in this messy little tale which though has an explained concept (As terrible as it is) it doesn't explain itself beyond that and leaves it to the viewer to fill in the blanks.

Poorly made, terribly paced, with forgettable characters and few redeeming features this paint by numbers effort isn't terrible it's just simply not very good either.

A decent enough (Though inevitable) twist near the end saved it a point or two but even that should have been handled better.

If they make a sequel (Which is teased though I doubt it'll ever happen) I just hope everyone packs bug spray and those annoying sticky yellow tape things that catch flies! That would make the movie at least comical.

Move along, nothing to see here
