Need help with the name of a horror film

Sorry I don't know much about the plot of this movie but I remember seeing bits of it on cable as a kid. Here's what I do recall:

1. The movie takes place on Halloween in 1995 I think.
2. It's related to some event going back 80 years in 1915.
3. There's a scene of some kids at a door trick or treating and a mean guy refuses to give them candy. Later the guy got killed.

That's all I remember of the movie. If anyone knows this movie please let me know what it's called. Thank you in advance.

The years are wrong, but possibly The Midnight Hour?

Takes place in 1985 on Halloween. People come back from the dead, including a cheerleader from the 1950s and a vampire from decades ago. And isn't Kevin McCarthy a grouchy old guy who gets attacked by a zombie?

There was also a Tales From The Darkside episode similar to 3rd bit (which seemingly inspired Trick 'r Treat).

Does McCarthy deny the kids candy? Do they trick or treat at his door?

(I can't believe I'd never heard of this film before last year.)

Thank you. I'll check out that film. Hopefully it's the same one I'm thinking of.

The thing with the old man almost sounds like "Night of the Demons."

I read the plot on wikipedia and I'm certain it is Jack-O both the plot and title ring a bell. Thank you very much.
