“Pumpkin snatch”

Films: Jack-O (1995)

Alias: None

Type: Mystical

Location: Civilized Area/Forest

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Family feuds are never fun. The sane ones get sidelined and the pettiness is at an all-time high. And sometimes, at least one family will do something remarkably stupid. Like summon a demon.

History: The Kellys and the Machens were enemies back in the day. But the thing that made the whole conflict moot was when one of the Machens, a Warlock, summoned the demonic killer Jack-O right before being executed. A Kelly ended up imprisoning the horrible thing in a cross-stabbed coffin for the rest of time. But then some idiot teens freed Jack-O, and now he's on the warpath again.

Notable Kills: Nothing special

Final Fate: It is the Kellys that end up bringing Jack-O down once more, with the dad pushing the demon onto a giant cross the kid is holding. After stumbling a bit with the cross lodged in his abdomen, Jack-O bursts into flames and is banished back to Hell.

Powers/Abilities: Jack-O's weapon of choice is a moderate-sized scythe.

Weakness: Only the giant cross that Jack-O was imprisoned with can kill him.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-There's a bit of difficulty in ignoring the fact that Jack-O is just a man in an incredibly obvious Halloween costume. That pumpkin just looks so foamy and fake. Still, he's still a near-invincible killer, so that counts for something.

Trivia: -This was the third film directed by Steve Latshaw, proceeded by "Dark Universe" and "Biohazard: The Alien Force".

-The scenes with John Carradine as the Warlock were filmed all the way back in 1985.
