VHS SYNOPSIS: Strange things are happening in Tommy's seemingly perfect town... a bloody pitchfork is found beside a mutilated corpse... dark chanting permeates the night chill... a deranged man warns of murder and madness... graves are robbed... and an ancient evil is about to be unleashed on the most devilish day - and night - of all: Halloween.
Enter into a world of black secrets, revenge, and death. Spine-chilling suspense, shocking revelations, and the ultimate terror of all are about to be revealed... when the sun goes down and the wind begins to howl. It is the season of the witch... and the night of the devil. It is the unspeakable fear of HALLOWEEN NIGHT!


Hack O Lantern (also known as Halloween Night or Death Mask) is a 1988 part slasher, part satanic, part heavy metal horror film directed by Jag Mundhra, written by Carla Robinson and stars Hy Pyke, Gregory Scott Cummins, Carla Baron. Many reviews online describe the film as so-bad-it's-good.

Released to VHS as Halloween Night by Atlas Entertainment Corp. in 1990 and by Legacy Entertainment as Hack-O-Lantern sometime after. Until this year the film was never officially released to DVD, but there are many bootlegs DVDs for sale online of a VHS recording of the film. In Philadelphia on March Friday the 13th 2015, Exhumed Films presented the U.S theatrical premiere of Hack-o-Lantern off of a rare pristine 35mm print. A limited amount of the theatrical poster (above) were available at the screening. Massacre Video will officially release the film as Death Mask on VHS and Blu-ray sometime this year or the beginning of 2016.
