Jack-O (1995)

Director: Steve Latshaw

Stars: Linnea Quigley, Maddisen K. Krown, Gary Doles, John Carradine, Brinke Stevens

The Kelly family living Oakmoor Crossing, just before and during Halloween. The family, consisting of father David, mother Linda, and son Sean, live a normal suburban life, but are eventually visited by a stranger who identifies herself as Vivian Machen. Both the Machens and the Kellys have a long ancestral history in Oakmoor Crossing, and Vivian reveals that one of the Kelly's ancestors hanged a supposed warlock named Walter Machen, who raised up a pumpkin-headed demon, Jack-O, from hell to take revenge on the Kellys. The Kelly ancestor ended up burying the demon in a shallow grave, but through the antics of several teenagers Jack-O is raised again and seeks revenge on the Kelly family.

This has a bad story. The makeup and special effects are not good. The acting is bad. Even though, all of that is maybe true. It may one of those movies that you go to for that special relaxing night where you just want to fall asleep on the couch. We all have those movies. This is one for many people that have seen it. It is a good bad movie.

You really need to watch this movie with a box of crackers. It is one of those cheesy horror movies that went direct to video in the 90's. There were way too many of them. This is one of those movies that you watch with a group of friends and eat some really cheesy pizza. Enjoy the cheese.
