In Salem, Massachusetts, the most bullied man in town, delicatessen worker Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler), spends his Halloween monitoring everyone’s activities in town… and a lot of weird shit is going down. Sandler, Steve Brill and the usual suspects brought along their whole families (to fill supporting roles) and are clearly having a ball in this horror comedy that has Sandler’s man-child facing numerous threats in a gorgeously Halloween-decorated Salem. High spirits, but the film won’t win Sandler any new fans.
