The good stuff here is the breezy tone of the film and the story itself is enjoyable and fun.

In all my life I have never seen such a cheesy film, but it is so d**m entertaining you can forgive its bad acting, effects, direction, and script.

Well that's exactly what is found in Jack-O, a movie with so many painfully bad, laughable elements that somehow mix with the fun elements and turn it into a very entertaining B level horror movie!

To save you from being bored silly with the plot, let's just go straight to the check list:-Awful plot.

All and all, pretty entertaining stuff!

It's dull too much of the time, and the acting is by and large pretty dodgy.

i fell asleep at the 40 minute stage and had NO desire at all to finish it, it's just bigtime lame OK.

The whole movie is contrived, I've seen better and more believable effects in movies made in the 50's, the dialogue seems forced and the acting is non- existent.

It's truly stunning to see how many speaking roles are introduced throughout the course of the movie.

Exciting, great story, o.

The little boy plays a major role in this film, despite the fact that he looks bored, like he's not sure what is going on or why he is even there.

There's one woman in a flashback scene who you must see in all her monotone glory to believe.

But considering just how minuscule the budget apparently was on this flick, it's to the credit of director Steve Latshaw and company that they pull off a movie that is at all coherent or enjoyable in the first place.

A grisly fate for the snub twosome was as predictable as death and taxes.

Slow paced, dull, and with a recycled script and awful special effects.

The film is disastrously long and dull.

This was one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

It's a cure for insomnia if nothing else!!.

I believe the best way to view this film is to be intoxicated, then you might get a good drunken laugh out of the whole thing, but if you're looking for a good flick, save your money and rent something else.

As in, this movie is about as thrilling as a cat hacking up a hairball.
