In a small upstate New York town where children mysteriously go missing at an alarming rate, a strange man runs a haunted house each year at Halloween where it is rumored that the body parts of the missing are used as props.

Wow, where to begin with this movie. It was just plain dumb. It has bland terrible dialog, they overdo the fake blood splatter, and the actors have no emotion in their voice. A man named Bill Loomis (who plays himself) is called Mr. Halloween because he runs a cheesy haunted house in this garage. He kidnaps teenagers and uses their body parts as props. Jill, played by Shannon Eastman, is probably the only worthy character, and that's not saying a lot. It is very stupid, but somewhat entertaining. Unless you're desperate for a bad movie, I wouldn't recommend MR. HALLOWEEN!!!

Mr.Halloween is a must see for the summer. It's a classic horror flick with lots of bodies and blood. It's a great first time film for Director Andy Wolf. With a small budget and a lot of first time actors, it was done amazingly well. All horror fans should check out this movie. It's sure to become a cult classic.

I guess everyone is out there making movies now. All you need is a video camera and a few non-talented idiot 20 something people and you can have a horror movie? Is this what my beloved horror genre has become? Terrible movies like "Mr. Halloween" would suggest that it is what it is.

Well, what we have here in "Mr. Halloween" is what appears to be, anyway, a group of kids who decided to make a movie and they liked the concept of the movie "Halloween" and the success that this particular low-budget movie had...just goes to show you that just because you make a low budget movie and have the word "Halloween" in it does NOT mean that you will produce a good horror movie. So, in a lame attempt to cash in on Carpenter's masterpiece, these lamos splattered some blood around with cups, buckets and smeared it when a kill was supposed to take place, used their lame actors to run around like a bunch of freaks, and had a psychopath on this loose killing people, and they couldn't call it "Halloween", so they just put a "Mr." in front of "Halloween" and called it "Mr. Halloween". The best part about this movie is the police officer's attitude toward this new generation of kids. As cynical as he may be, he's got a point, and I don't blame him about these characters...it would have been great if everyone in this whole movie died...that's how bad it is. Yeah, that's right, I don't like this movie and you know why? Because, it's garbage!

"Mr. Halloween" completely lacks in atmosphere, suspense and mood, elements that are essential to any horror movie's success. The makers of this garbage completely failed to capture a Halloween theme in this movie. Just a complete mess here, and it's just further evidence to support the fact that the horror genre is officially dead.

Upon viewing, this film seems to have two strikes against it, and Sandy Koufax just took the mound to close.

To say the acting is amateurish in almost every case would be being kind; the camera work, whilst there are some really outstanding shots and good composition, is shaky and inconsistent; even the quality of the film is grainy and pixelated, tiling VERY apparent on the blacks and a lot of distortion in long shots; the sound work is hit and miss, a good bit of the dialogue fading into the background behind the overly-amped and D-grade soundtrack; the story is a pretty good one, not entirely original, but done in a convincing and different way, but there are several elements that don't immediately make an overt amount of sense...

...and all of that sounds like a terrible excuse for killing an hour of your time watching it.

However...

When you sit back and take into account that this film was done by a group of basically kids, with probably about two-hundred bucks worth of budget, borrowed equipment, and a weekend or two to work on it, you have to see it with different eyes. I doubt seriously anyone who worked on this film got paid a red cent up front; it was composed purely of passion and dogged determination to get something worthwhile put together in a genre they obviously all love. They sought to bring out a little originality rather than re-hash something someone else had already done, and whereas you can see some elements in the film you've seen before, overall I think they were successful.

A low budget movie with a great plot. Not bad,considering it's a first time acting gig for most of the cast, the movie sucks you in as it goes along.
