|A sadistic toymaker has secretly installed microchips inside his toy Silver Shamrock masks which are set to explode on Hallowe'en night as children wear them to watch his addictive television commercial.|
Despite what many people say about this stand-alone unrelated entry in the film series, this is a clever movie which is hard to forget, especially after you've heard the tv jingle 3 more days to Halloween, Halloween... Silver Shamrock which is sung in the same tune as London Bridge is falling down. It also grossed a substantial amount of money at the box-office compared to its relatively miniscule budget too. Personally, I love it.

No Michael Myers; get over it! Nice try by Carpenter to send the Halloween franchise off in a new direction, with a script by Nigel "Quatermass" Kneale, who subsequently disowned it. Has a TV movie ambience and a nicely understated performance from O'Herlihy as the villain trying to get some respect for the holiday. ~ The Sloth
