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.
