Storyline

It's Halloween in West Minister, and teenager Lynn Starks is attacked by a man wearing a pumpkin face mask in the basement of her house. Her younger brother Jonathan is carving a pumpkin in the kitchen and hears her sister crying for help. He uses the knife to protect his sister, stabbing the assaulter. When they take the mask off his face, they realize that the man is Lynn's boyfriend Alec, playing a prank on Lynn. One year later, the siblings move to Carver, and they are invited to a Halloween party in the field. Lynn introduces her friend Tammy to her brother, who is haunted by Alec, and Jonathan stays with Tammy. However, her former boyfriend Lance bullies Jonathan along the night. Meanwhile, several youngsters are attacked by someone wearing a Pumpkin Face mask, carving their faces. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When the brother is unloading the jeep , he asks the sister, "What about the top?" meaning that he wanted to put the top on the Jeep. At the end of the movie, Jeep number 3 has a hard top, not a convertible top. There would have been no way to transport the top of the Jeep . See more »

Slick, with little payoff.
13 September 2007 | by TrickTaylorSee all my reviews

The Pumpkin Carver is yet another one of the recent attempts to apply the tried and true slasher formula. And as so many do, this movie fails to deliver. The plot is plain stupid as are most of the stock characters. You have the fragile hero (whiney is more like it), the drugged out party dudes (annoying as hell), and the token asshole jock type. These are the party-people, and yes, they are destined to get killed.

The movie would have us believe that some evil pumpkin carver is killing kids at a Halloween party.....in a pumpkin patch! Actually, the movie can't find a plausible reason why this thing is killing kids. The premise is very confused and ultimately hurts the movie. The ending is plain awful....I still don't know what really happened.

The kills were low budget all the way, which is unfortunate given the polished look of the film in general. Really not an ounce of clever to be found here. And as one reviewer has pointed out, no nudity despite saying otherwise on the box.

One bright spot was Minka Kelly, a pouty lipped poor man's Jessica Alba. She was stunning and I anticipate seeing a lot more of her. Overall, I say avoid the Pumpkin Carver.
