Horror called it one of the scariest films of the year, writing, "All Hallows Eve, an instant scare classic in itself, tends to transcend its own setting by playing on viewers fears and sense of nightmarish realism.This in itself carries its theme right up to the end to make for a truly edgy creep show." The film was not without its detractors.All Hallows' Eve is a 2013 American horror anthology film directed by Damien Leone, marking his feature film directorial debut.The film was released direct-to-video on October 29, 2013 and stars Mike Giannelli as a homicidal clown that terrorizes his victims.However, the reviewer criticized the film's "paper-thin" story, concluding, "As it is, ALL HALLOWS’ EVE has one damn scary clown that’s sure to cause you to sleep with the lights on.I can only imagine the fear would have been multiplied exponentially had the filmmakers spent as much time on the story as they did with coming up with the creepy as all get-out monster." Madeleine Koestner from Fangoria noted that, while the film had its lackluster moments, it was "legitimately creepy" and commended the special effects, the lack of rules set forth, and strange characters/creatures, particularly Art the Clown.
We're aiming to create a scene so shocking and iconic that people will talk about it for years to come.After being resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to Miles County where he must hunt down and destroy a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night.As the body count rises, the siblings fight to stay alive while uncovering the true nature of Art's evil intent.When he doesn't return, the girl inspects to find Art chopping up the attendants body with a hacksaw. Eventually Art catches her and she comes to on a crude operating table with her limbs cut off by Art. Disturbed, Sarah attempts to shut off the tape but to no avail.Art then steps into frame in a dingy looking basement.
