Trama e commenti: - - «Durante le feste per la celebre notte un gruppo di ragazzi trovano in un cimitero un'antica pergamena e cominciano i guai: i demoni escono dall'inferno e i morti dalle tombe. Uno dei tanti derivati di Halloween (1978) di J. Carpenter contaminato con La notte dei morti viventi e Un lupo mannaro americano a Londra, video musicali, horror parodistici, commedie giovanilistiche. Il reparto trucchi ha, comunque, ben lavorato. Film TV».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - «It is Halloween in the small town of Pitchford Cove located somewhere in New England, and five high school friends, Phil (Lee Montgomery), Mary (Dedee Pfeiffer), Mitch (Peter DeLuise), Vinnie (LeVar Burton), and Melissa (Shari Belafonte-Harper), plan on making it a night they will never forget. They steal outfits from the town's historic museum and come upon other old artifacts, including an old trunk encasing a paper scroll which contains an ancient curse. When Melissa recites the curse at the local cemetery, things take a turn for the worse. The town's dead, led by Melissa's great-grandmother Lucinda Cavender (Jonelle Allen), a vampire who was put to death 300 years earlier, rise up from their graves and roam the town. As Melissa, Vinnie, Mitch, and Mary enjoy themselves at their annual Halloween costume party, Phil encounters a mysterious girl, named Sandra "Sandy" Matthews (Jonna Lee), dressed in a vintage 1950's cheerleader outfit, who warns him that the whole town is in danger. Meanwhile, Lucinda and the various undead ghouls crash into the costume party. At first, nobody pays much attention to them since everyone is in costume. However, Lucinda begins turning the party guests into vampires, starting with Melissa, then Vinnie, and so on. When Phil discovers that Sandy is one of the resurrected dead too, they realize that the whole town is being overrun by the living dead and decide to team up to break the curse. The only way to do so is to find the Greenville Spirit Ring inside the grave of witch-hunter Martin Grenville - who, coincidentally, was Phil's great-grandfather and Lucinda Cavender's arch-nemesis - and use it to undo the curse. It's up to Phil and "good zombie" Sandy to restore the town to normal by midnight before it is too late and the curse becomes permanent».
