After some traumatic experiences in LA, Ella (Brea Grant) and her husband Robert (Graham Skipper) leave the big city to work in a small and peaceful town, she as a middle school teacher, he as a nurse - and they move in exactly on Halloween. They soon have to realize though that small town life isn't totally stress-free either, as their neighbour is a convicted pedophile (Miles Dougal) who's just creepy as hell. But overall, their first day in town isn't that bad, they spend the day unpacking and carving pumpkins ... and then at nightfall Robert has to leave for his first day on the job, while Ella's a little scared. And scared she should be, as two twin sisters (Alycia Lourim, Heather Vaughn), about 14 of age and wearing masks, roam the neighbourhood trick-or-treating - but they brutally slaughter whoever has no treats for them. And they're closing in on Ella's house ...

Horror fave Heather Dorff plays teh mother of the twins - but she dies before their birth even.

 

Despite this being a slasher movie set at halloween, this film has remarkably little to do with John Carpenter's classic Halloween, instead it tells a character-driven story that at times strays far from the horror genre for narrative reasons, and that really gets into the heads of its protagonists to only then strike with full force, with killings that are carefully balanced between shock and suspense, and at least one especially grotesque corpse is definitely hall-of-fame worthy. This all is made possible by a very assured directorial effort, a solid cast, and a pretty great score. And while the film itself plays straight, one has to love the epilogue for its self-ironic approach.

Well worth a watch!
