Trying to escape the infamy of a serial killer father, Trent Modine (Shannon Brown) and his goofball stepbrother Joey (Simon Rex), both seeking a new start, find refuge in the small town of Mooseheart.

However, it doesn’t take long before the family name catches up. Joey, a free-spirited stoner and Trent, lovesick pessimist, must figure out how to sort through a string of cliche murders that happen start as soon as they arrive…

“Mixing horror, slasher, marijuana, and non-stop comedy, Halloweed is a hilariously good time. The plot was really good and something fresh to the scene […] As funny as this film is, which probably justifies it being so ridiculously cheesy, I can’t just simply allow the cheesiness to go unnoticed and not being held accountable.” Decay Mag

Halloweed is a pleasant enough diversion, hardly essential yet innocuous and amusing. As I said, I liked it about as much as I liked Stan Helsing. That should probably tell you all you need to know about it.” HK and Cult Film News
