review by
Mike Haberfelner

A parallel world, Detroit 1986: Halloween creatures as we know them have always co-existed with humans, but their co-existence isn't exactly peaceful anymore as humankind has revoked the creatures' citizen rights and has decided to force them into assimilation camps - which might just as well be concentration camps -, and kill all those who resist. So many of the creatures have been driven underground, but the authorities are successful in tracking down pocket after pocket of creatures to eliminate them. At a video conference, creature leader plant man Konal (Jean-Daniel Byrne, voiced by Andrew Calverley) discusses his latest and maybe last plan of action with his inner circle, Daniel (Steward James Barham), witch Ellie (Natasha Lamper) and vampire Rafferty (Christopher Dingle), while he's also trying to root out the traiter within the group. Time's running short, they all just don't know how short ...

 

A fun little creature feature reminiscent of B-horrors from the 1980s - not only thanks to using practical effects for the creatures, but also to the rather loving creature designs themselves and the film's anything-goes attitude -, Goodnight, Halloween basically succeeds in turning a simply video conference fattened up with TV news snippets into a rather cool conspiracy thriller, one that doesn't take itself 100% seriously due to a plant man being the lead character, but everyone plays it straight, and an emphasis is put on building up tension - which works out rather nicely making this a unexpectedly tight little suspense piece, in the guise of a monster movie of course.
