Jack-O is the third in a trio of movies directed by Steve Latshaw in the early-to-mid-1990s (along with Dark Universe and Biohazard: The Alien Force). The film was straight-to-TV and video, and was later rereleased in 2005 as a special-edition DVD.

Synopsis

The film details the Kelly family living in the fictional town of Oakmoor Crossing, just before and during Halloween. The family, consisting of father David, mother Linda, and son Sean, live a normal suburban life, but are eventually visited by a stranger who identifies herself as Vivian Machen. Both the Machens and the Kellys have a long ancestral history in Oakmoor Crossing, and Vivian reveals that one of the Kelly's ancestors hanged a supposed warlock named Walter Machen, who raised up a pumpkin-headed demon, Jack-O, from hell to take revenge on the Kellys. The Kelly ancestor ended up burying the demon in a shallow grave, but through the antics of several teenagers Jack-O is raised again and seeks revenge on the Kellys.

In 1971, on a visit to his institutionalized grandfather, who warned 5-year-old Billy Chapman that Santa Claus punishes the naughty, his family happens to come across a man in a Santa Claus outfit seemingly having car trouble. The man - actually a criminal who has just used that disguise to rob a liquor store after he kills a man and escaped - pulls a gun and mercilessly kills Billy's father in front of him and his infant brother Ricky, then slits their mother's throat with a switch blade, leaving the children alive. Three years later, Billy and Ricky are celebrating Christmas in an orphanage run by Mother Superior, a strict disciplinarian, who persistently strikes children who misbehave and considers punishment for their wicked actions as a good thing. Sister Margaret seems to be the only one who sympathizes with the children, trying to get Billy to open up and play with the children, but they are constantly under Superior's scrutinizing eye and they regularly end up getting punished.

The film begins with a couple coming across a severely wounded girl that can only utter the word "kolobos". The film then cuts to a few days prior where the same girl, an artist named Kyra (Amy Weber), has agreed to take part in an experimental film. The film will have several different people living together for three months while the cameras record their interactions. Her artwork, which are inspired by a creepy faceless entity, disturb her new housemates. The group gets along well until night time, when a series of deadly traps pick them off one by one. Also hunting the group is the entity from Kyra's dreams, which prompts some suspicion from some of the survivors. Eventually all but Kyra die and she is then shown cutting herself with a blade she finds in her bathroom. She's then shown making a phone call to place an ad for a group of people to come and tape an experimental film, identical to the one the initial group responded to when they came to the house. It is left ambiguous as to whether or not the events in the film happened, what Kyra's part in it was, and whether or not the faceless entity exists.

Frank Zito is a mentally disturbed young man who has taken over his family's mannequin sales business after the recent death of his mother, who also moonlighted as a prostitute. Frank's childhood experiences of seeing his mother bring home clients or being taken out with her to turn tricks has left Frank unable to enter into meaningful relationships with women, and his sexual impulses tend to manifest themselves as violent urges that Frank externalizes as his mother's will. Struggling to come to grips with his mother's treatment of him, and spurred by memories of his mother brushing her hair before going out at night, Frank stalks, murders, and scalps a woman one night, attaching her hair to a mannequin that he then keeps in his bedroom.
