When Tommy was a boy, he saw his grandpa (Hy Pyke), the leader of a vicious satanic cult, murder his father in a brutal ritual on Halloween night. Now Tommy (Gregory Scott Cummins) is 18 and grandpa is ready to indoctrinate him into the ways of the black arts. But as night approaches, someone dressed like a member of the cult, whose face is hidden behind a devilish mask, begins stalking and killing people connected to Tommy. Could it be grandpa, Tommy himself, or someone even more sinister behind these increasingly brutal murders?
Directed by Jag Mundhra (Open House, The Jigsaw Murders) and featuring atmospheric photography by Stephen Ashley Blake (Deadly Prey), HACK-O-LANTERN is a lurid mix of slasher, giallo, and supernatural horror, set in the frenzied world of Satanic Panic. Previously only viewable as low quality bootlegs, Massacre Video brings this distinctly sleazy 80s classic to Blu-ray in a brand new restoration from its original 35mm camera negative and featuring revealing interviews with is producer and stars.
