‘Some family isn’t worth fighting for’
Samhain is a 2020 American comedy horror film about a group of video game nerds facing off against a maniac dressed as a clown.
Directed by Gabriele Rolland from a screenplay written by Scotty McCoy (who also stars).
The Gravestone Films production also stars Amanda Sawayer, Tyler Ebert and Scott Yagielniskie.
A man named Justin Freed (Brett Harris) had a mental breakdown on Halloween, which started on the nights of the Samhain festival. He was committed to the Skook Asylum to which he has escaped on the nights leading up to Halloween to come after his daughter he lost years ago, Sami (Amanda Sawayer).
Sami’s mom, Kathryn (Brenda Sachleben) is back in town to help put a stop to Justin’s antics. Justin encounters four video game nerds (Scotty McCoy, Tyler Ebert, Scott Yagielniskie, and Shane Opolsky) who go on a mission to protect their “princess” and be real-life video game heroes.
Justin obtains an alter ego of sorts to which he uses the mannerisms of an evil comedic clown to kill anyone and everyone that gets in his way from reuniting himself with his estranged wife and daughter…
