    Well, I am so surprised with this movie. It was really great and fun .

    One of the things I was surprised with was how it was pacing itself with no nonsense things. It kept getting interesting and scary. I liked how the sparks were coming out of guitar and vanishing everybody.

    There is rock music, a scary teenager, some weird stuff, girls and just some seasoning with it.

    Watch it and have fun.

    Film #17 of Hoop-Tober

    Scariness level: 1/10

    Very 80's. Very Rock'n'roll, very fun and a smidgen smarter that it probably gets credit for. Trick or Treat is a charming enough film that could have so easily gone into a bloody, bloody mess of a revenge/horror but instead plays it weird by involving the recently deceased ghost of a rocker and his super-fan, our main character Eddie, and the bizarre possession of radio waves and well, there's a really, really weird…

    Rag Man is a great hero and Sammi Curr is a great villain.

    Amusing horror film with Skippy from Family Ties (Marc Price) as an outsider metal head. Eddie (Price) learns that his metal hero, Sammi Curr (Tony Fields), died in a fire. He stops by a local radio station where the local DJ Nuke (Gene Simmons) gives him a vinyl recording of Curr's last recording. Eddie plays the recording backwards and learns he can get revenge on the bullies who bullied him. Ozzy Osbourne appears briefly as a moral crusader priest in…

    Music for your reading pleasure

    "Rock’s chosen warriors will rule the apocalypse."


    I haven’t been surprised this much with a horror movie since I saw John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness nearly a year ago. Trick or Treat, the 1986 horror movie I hadn't even heard of five days ago, is some of the most fun I have had while watching a horror movie in a very, very long time.

    In Trick or Treat, the…

    Ah , how I love the small genre of heavy metal horror movies from the 80's. While I would have to say my all time favorite is Shock em dead, this comes in a close second. Skippy from Family Ties is mildly convincing as a loser metal head who is very upset when his heavy metal idol, Sammi Curr dies. Gene Simmons plays the kind of sinister metal DJ that would call the suburbs home and would also have an…

    Despite having Gene Simons and Ozzy Osborn on the cover of the version I watched, both had very small appearances in this movie. If I was that kid, I would be pissed. I mean, not as pissed as I would be for having appeared in this terrible movie but...

    Gotta love the soundtrack...well, I do. Great little cameos by Gene Simmons & Ozzy Osbourne. I will say this film could have used practical effects to show some creative kills. If you're a fan of 80s metal and like horror, well this is def the film to watch.

    I wanted to see this when I was a kid because of the killer cover art and the stills on the back, but the video store that had it was only around in the days when I was too young to get it. Somehow it's only now that I've actually gotten to it. But it couldn't have come at a better time, having really embraced in recent years the kind of music that provides the motif and soundtrack of the…

    A gentle reminder to never play your records backwards. Even if you really hate your high school.

    The premise of Haunted Heavy Metal Records and Cassettes killing preppy teens is awesome and so 80's - shame the story is a bit slow in some parts, and I really didn't like Ragman all that much...
