Contains Spoilers (but who hasn't seen this film yet, eh?)
Isn't Halloween one of the best times of the year? All that anticipation. Now that I'm no longer powered by chocolate most of the anticipation for me is that maybe, just maybe there will be a good horror film on TV this year. If they show this I will no longer be disappointed.
So first up Emma gets killed and stuffed in to one of her own ghost-scarecrows because she disrespected Halloween. The Principle poisons a young boy's candy and buries him in the back garden. I had no idea I was capable of laughing at a man finishing off a kid with a shovel at the bottom of a hole in the lawn. Well I am capable. What of it? This is such a clever and thoroughly enjoyable scene which we later revisit in the form of the story colliding with another. You see, this is an anthology of four Halloween themed stories that intertwine.
They all have another thing in common - Sam. He is the voyeur of the film. Dressed in pyjamas and a pumpkin head. An innocent Trick or Treater? No fear. Sam gets his revenge on those who do not adhere to his ideal Halloween.
A traditional feel of a classic horror and not your typical slasher, illustrated with the scary haunted house imagery and drunk teenage revellers. Now, where's that veg and my big sharp knife?
