"A campfire tale brought to life." —Annie Choi, Bleeding Skull
Jack-O is the Halloween mash-up between Troll 2, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and Friday the 13th Part V that you've been dreaming of.
It's Halloween night in the small town of Oakmoor Crossing. And all is not well. Armed with a scythe and a literal pumpkin for a head, Mister Jack has risen from his tomb to seek revenge against a warlock's descendants and their babysitter (Linnea Quigley, Return of the Living Dead). Why? We're not sure. But we are sure that Jack-O is resplendent in its Halloween vibes, autumn landscapes, and surrealist visuals.
Newly restored from the original 16mm camera negative, Jack-O is a gloriously fun 1990s slasher that deserves a spot in your heart as a Halloween tradition.
