Did You Know?
All the werewolves in this film were created by Tatopoulos Studios, the same studio that brought you the Lycans in the Underworld trilogy.
After Mr Kreeg shoots the creature in the downstairs hall, he removes two spent shells from the shotgun and then inserts just one fresh shell. Despite this, he goes on to shoot the creature twice more without reloading.
*Fangs come out* My my. What big eyes you have.
Not Scary. Still Amazing
People keep bashing this movie for the wrong reasons. If your somebody
reading reviews that say "one of the best horror movies" that doesn't
mean it's scary or gory. This movie is an amazing horror film, but keep
in mind that it isn't that scary and nor does it try to be. The reason
it's good is, because it truly captures the essence of Halloween. It's
all about being a kid on Halloween and hearing urban legends, and
following Halloween traditions. On top of that the effects look great.
There's no CGI at all, and it makes the movie more authentic. The
setting also helps. It feels like a real neighborhood that just happens
to get supernatural events on Halloween. The only people who I could
see hating this movie are torture porn addicts, and people who had no
Halloween childhood. For the rest of us who love Halloween, and love
horror films then make sure to see this movie.
