What was your favorite Halloween tradition? The candy? The costumes? Or visiting some middle-aged guy’s Haunted Garage? Jack-O strongly posits that the last one was a formative part of many childhoods. Sadly, this particular Haunted Garage happens to have offended a scythe-wielding undead killer with a pumpkin head! Maybe he was offended by the oil stains on the garage floor? Or he was distressed by the lack of a tennis ball on a string providing proper parking guidance? We’ll never know!

The killer is the titular Jack-O, and he rises from the grave to take out his frustration on the usual horror movie suspects: drunk teens, horny teens, and cable news obsessed adults who are fortunately very much not horny. The only person who can stop him is a witch who uses all her ungodly powers as you’d expect: by helping take tickets at the Haunted Garage. 

As the bodies pile up faster than 3 Musketeers wrappers we’re left to wonder: Will they stop Jack-O before his head rots and caves in on itself like your neighbor’s pumpkin that is somehow STILL on his doorstep?? It’s the week before Thanksgiving! Get rid of the damn thing, Tony or we’re alerting the HOA!!!

Please join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Jack-O!
