Kyle explains the curse and they realize they each have to trick someone into killing someone else, before midnight on the night before Halloween. Literally none of this makes any sense.
The Night Before Halloween () |
This movie started off with potential, but quickly descended into a frustratingly confusing mess. As the clock strikes midnight, they are attacked by the fly monster and Beth flat lines.
While trying to get away, Wyatt falls out of the window to his death. Megan, Adam and Lindsay try to flee the hospital, but the police force them into hiding inside the hospital. While hiding in the basement, Megan, Adam and Lindsay are discovered by police and try to run, only to realize the fly monster is also after them. Adam closes himself in a room with the fly monster and tells Megan and Lindsay to run.
Mischief Night As An Act Of Peaceful Resistance
The police apprehend the girls, while a scream is heard coming from the room Adam was in. When the police put Lindsay in a police car alone, she starts screaming for them not to leave her in there alone. What Megan and the others don't realize is that their new friend Kyle was intentionally trying to rid himself of the Curse of the Carver: a curse that kills you on the night before Halloween unless you can trick someone into killing another person.
One year later, Megan and her friends are brought back together and must fight for their lives against the Curse of the Carver.
Yes. The Night Before Halloween Is a Real Holiday

A year later all the kids start getting texts from the injured girl who is actually in a coma.
They go the hospital. There we learn of a stain on the ceiling and flies. One of the kids who's gone missing reappears and shows them the video of the dead guy where things are explained. So it turns out that guy was cursed and the only way to pass on the curse is buy getting someone else killed. Because they were all part of the prank now they are cursed and have this night, the night before Halloween to make someone else die or they will die.
The police are sort of after them and so is the curse--a bunch of flies that can take on the shape of a creature or of weapons. Of course the kids will have different ways of dealing with this, some will be fine with trying to get someone else killed others reject the idea and will try to figure out some other way out. The Night Before Halloween is a surprisingly good production for a Syfy movie.
Unfortunately only the production is good. Everything else isn't.
How to get there?
In particular the story, which would be more suited for a short. The problem is that all we focus on is these unremarkable kids we can't even care about. It's actually a relief to see some adults, in the form of the cops. It's also Anthony Lemke who in the role of the main detective gives the most convincing performance. Surprisingly, this movie is all business. There's not much of an attempt at romance, or comedy or anything else for that matter. The problem is that the business of this movie just doesn't convince. It would have helped if the curse didn't come in the utterly unscary form of flies.

The idea itself of a curse that has to be resolved in 24 hours isn't a bad idea nor is it new. More should have been done with the idea if an additional writer would have been hired.
Granted, this is a pretty bland movie for teens and about teens, I'm not sure though even teens would enjoy this. Start your free trial. Find showtimes, watch trailers, browse photos, track your Watchlist and rate your favorite movies and TV shows on your phone or tablet!
