Doctor Gangrene (Larry Underwood) and Penny Dreadful (Danielle Gelehrter), two perennial Halloween protagonists, are in for a shock: Halloween as they knew it is no more, it has turned into just another sugary-sweet holiday supposed to frithen noone. After panicking for a bit, Gangrene and Penny do what everyone would do in this situation - blaming each other. After a bit of fingerpointing, they come to the conclusion that they are actually both to blame, Gangrene because he travelled back in time to find the spirit of Halloween, but instead accidently sabotaged the very creation of Halloween itself, Penny because a magic spell of hers was to make every Halloween like the first one, the Halloween that no longer was.

After more arguing, Penny and Gangrene decide that she will countercast her spell while he will go back in time once more to frighten some medieval folks into creating Halloween once again - by wearing a cheap rubber mask. Now this is a plan so ill-conceived it simply has to succeed.

Having reinstated Halloween in its former glory, Penny and Gangrene agree to never again touch the core of Halloween - but what they might do to some of the other holidays is at anybody's guess ...

Horror host Count Gore DeVol (Richard Dyszel) does the introduction to this by the way.


A fun little film that might not be exactly original concerning its stories, but it gets some fine laughs out of the interaction between real life horror hosts Larry Underwood and Danielle Gelehrter, who try to outshine each other in what I would term a friendly competition, and this way they develop a chemistry all of their own - even though they do not actually share one scene in the movie and their scenes were even shot in different studios by different crews.

Good fun, anyways!
