Monsters Vs Aliens - Mutant Pumpkins From Outer Space

Synopsis: Susan Murphy (a.k.a. Ginormica) and the Monsters are now working with the US government as special ops. So when an alien presence is detected in Susan's hometown of Modesto, California -- right before Halloween -- the team is dispatched to investigate. Everything appears normal, right down to the jack-o-lanterns peering out from every doorstep and windowsill. But when Halloween arrives, those innocent-looking carved pumpkins reveal themselves for what they really are mutant aliens. The altered pumpkins then start to implement their fiendish plan to take over Earth. The Monsters are there to combat the mutant gourds and try to smash their wicked scheme!

Damned teenagers!

You'd better not in my field making out.

Not in front of my pumpkins.

Now scram!

Back in my day, we had respect

for a man's vegetables.


What in the...?!


Mutant Pumpkins from outer space

Oh yeah, the classic

- That was very scary.

Do the creature from "The blue lagoon".

No, not again!

Stop, stop! Have you stopped yet?

What do you think I should be for Halloween?

Chewing gum, snowball, baseball...

melting snowball. Solar system?

Bad Elvis? "Thank you very much".

You as bad Elvis?

Actually, yeah. Maybe...

Guys, good news! Looks like that Yeti sighting

was just a hokes. So we got the night off.

Enjoy your coffee. It's normal.

Noone is in it.

This could use a little more milk.

Jeez, where is your Halloween spirit?

Hey, I got plenty of Halloween spirit. Just wait

till you see my Zombie cheerleader costume.

Now, where will I get some really huge pom poms?

- Susan... are a real monster now, and that means

you're playing in the big league with the big boys.

I got 50 years of misted Halloween all

smushed up tight inside me just bursting to get out.

This isn't just any night.

It is our night, and when it finally comes...

we got to terrify...

- Perhaps, my fiend friend...

But for some of us all Hallows' Eve

is more trick then treat

I was but a little lad. My head filled with dreams

of particle physics and candy.

Sweet candy.

The future before me seemed sugar-coated.


My swirly pop!

From that dark day forth,

Halloween was dead to me... forever.

You know, I kinda want to throw you

in the trash right now.

Come on, guys. Like you said, it's our night, right?

So, let's get out and have some fun.

Fun time is over, monsters!

It's a no-go. I repeat, a no-go on Halloweens!


- We got us a major situation.

A UFO has entered our airspace over California.

And you ain't going to believe where...

Modesto? Why is it always Modesto?

- I thought it was kinda freaking myself.

Any idea what we are facing, general?

Invasion? Abductions? ?????

Unknown. And I hate these some unknow.

So I want you on the ground and searching Modesto

for possible alien intruders.. asap.

Better yet. Pronto!

And let's keep this on a 'need to know' basis.

nobody needs to know!

- But what about my parents?

No, not even your parents. It's Halloween after all,

we don't want to go around scaring folks.

Hello? Hey, get down here.

They're giving away pumpkins.

And it looks like they're going fast.

"Free pumpkins for all humans".

I'm a human. Sign me up.

Nobody does Halloween like the Murphys.

- We did it again, Carl.

Susie Q!

Mum! Dad!

I'm so glad to see you.

Oh honey, I can't believe you came.

- I finally managed to get a night off. So, I'm here.

But you're always so busy saving the earth.

It's not healthy.

Yes, we were starting to think Modesto would have

to get invaded by aliens again to see our daughter.

Stop! It's just ridiculous.

Yes, we're just here for the party,

mr and mrs Murphy.

If indeed that's who you actually are!

They're clear.

Clearly ready to throw

the best ??? party in Modesto?

Oh, we went all out this year, hon.

I included all your own favourites...

death by chocolate fountain...

??? wicked witches, candy-poison appletree and...

children of the candy cornfield!

Yeah, not bad, but you know...

Call me when it's real candy.

You know what I'm saying...

B.O.B., it is real candy.

Oops... Hey guys,

since everything looks fine here,

why don't you go out

and do some 'Trick or Treat'-ing...

You know. Check out the neighbourhood.

- Of course. We'll keep an eye out... for candy.

Wait, where are we going? There is candy in here.

- You're coming, B?

Just try and stay... focused.

Susan, maybe you and your ma can start pealing

the grapes for the eyeballs salad.

I've got to get the farmer's Jeb patch.

Not to point the finger, but...

we need more pumpkins.

No...! Sorry.

Euh, it's not save out there.

You know, kids throwing eggs.

You got get ???-ed.

So, I'll go get the pumpkins.

It's quite simple, BOB. You ring the doorbell,

then repeat the following: Trick or Treat.

They offer you candy...

They're almost slightly human.

They offer to probe you...

They're almost slightly not.

Wait. They offer candy to us!

For free! Are they crazy?

That free candy comes with a price, BOB.

Now focus, we have a mission to attend to.

Oh, this is ridiculous. I've waited 50 years

to scare the caramel out of these kids.

I can't wait any longer.

Just, tell them I got sick, or something.

I do a makeup mission later. I've got to go..


Fine. I'll do it myself.

Trick or treat. Trick or treat.

Happy Hallowee...

This won't hurt a bit.

All clear.

Oh my god, it's Shrek!

Honey, bring the camera!

Say 'cheese'!

- Trick or treat. Trick or treat. Got it!

All clear.


- Hey there, little genius. You're dressed like me.

Uhm, no. I'm dressed as the Missing Link,

you're dressed like a fat old mermaid.

Yeah, since when does Link have a beer gut?

What is happening right now?

I believe what my colleague intended to say,

was "Trick or Treat".

Oh, what an inventive costume, dear.

Really quite discusting.

You deserve something special.

A swirly pop?

For me?

And this time, no pimply hooligans

will deprive me of my lickable loot.

Come, B.O.B.

We have a new prime directive... candy!
