Customer Reviews


I think this movie made fun of the less intelligent Father and Son relationship and also told the story of how it robbed the other families children of their innocent childhood due to the fathers obsession. HATED THIS MOVIE. I'd give it zero stars if I could!

Great Doc on the greatest Holiday!

This was a very emotional documentary about the lives that are effected by the love of Halloween decorations. It's heart warming and a great way to spend a family night before any holiday.

A Haunted Treasure

A wonderful slice of Americana. If you have any love for Halloween or an appreciation for the passion people put into making it a special night for their community, check this out.
