Trick 'r Treat
Poison, Drowning, Claw, Or Knife. So Many Ways To Take A Life.
Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.
Part Four of Rolling Fog, Creepy Passageways, Murderers Lurking In The Dark: My Own Halloween Challenge
A delightful, demented, atmospheric, and wonderfully conceived cult classic; Trick 'r Treat is a yearly Halloween tradition with me, and every viewing brings new, rich and joyful surprises. And with the leaves rolling about, the wind picking up speed, and the cold winter chill making itself known; I figured it was time to sit back and enjoy one of my favorite horror films.
The direction is beautifully done, the cinematography is both nostalgic and creaky, the production design is absolutely impeccable; the film's technical qualities are perfect in a creepy and playful sort of way. Yet, It's the way the entire film is constructed,…
I'm doing a run of 10 horror films released since 2004 now, for anyone who cares. This was a pretty great way of starting off that run.
I will be honest and say that Trick 'r Treat struggled to hold my attention for the first 20 minutes or so. The opening scene was pretty predictable and the Dylan Baker story didn't really grab my attention leading on to the start of the Anna Paquin story that was plodding along to what I thought was going to be a predictable ending.
Sticking with it, however, was a decision I am very glad that I made because the last 50 minutes or so of this are absolutely tremendous. It probably took me…
Coach Taylor was in a hot-dog costume butt-fucking a pig.
My final film for Horroctober 2012 where I completely went overboard. It's an anthology film done in the vein of Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt. Michael Dougherty's directorial debut captures the tone of these anthology films perfectly. Their fun little horror stories that skirt the line of fear, humor and camp with red herrings and twists along the way.
The main difference, and it's strongest attribute, to other similar films is that all the stories are interconnected and take place in the same town. While there certainly is different sections, the film doesn't limit itself to concentrating on just one story for X number…

"I hate Halloween."
Well then, this was a treat of a watch! I've heard good things about this, but haven't checked it out, and I'm disappointed I never watched it much sooner. Trick 'R Treat is an anthology horror film that takes place on Halloween night. There's There's five different shorts and there all interconnected by at least one character, and that character is usually, Sam. Think of something along the lines of Creepshow. It's a great horror film that goes perfect for the holiday!
It's perfectly written and excellently directed which culminates in an perfectly executed film. It's creepy, spooky, it's humorous. It's not necessarily ground breaking in the genre, but…
A fantastic little interconnected anthology film (think Altman's Short Cuts) that delivers a Halloween love letter with a unique feel that covers most of the spooky genres. Not every storyline is equal in strength, but an other-world Grimm fairytale vibe creates an extra level of texture that helps usher you through the less effective elements. As does playing the cute and sweet off of the frightening and grisly. A cast that is clearly enjoying themselves (and what a cast) add to a horror film that feels like no other. It's confounding to realize that this was shelved for almost three years and dumped on video, while we had studios empty their bowels on our heads with wretched retread mush during that time. Well, thank god for video and the rumored sequel.
The Good: Halloween season is my favorite season. Watching two of the greatest horror films ever made -- William Friedkin's The Exorcist and John Carpenter's Halloween -- has been a yearly tradition of mine. And ever since it was released on Blu-ray back in 2009 (after being shelved for two years by Warner Bros. for God knows why), Trick 'r Treat has joined those two in my Halloween horror viewing. Why? Because it's a damn good horror flick, that's why. Sure, it's not as scary as The Exorcist nor as groundbreaking as Halloween, but it's one of the most fun and rewatchable films in the…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Well that little guy sure is creepy! Aside from the movie's mascot Trick 'r Treat is an entirely forgettable scary story anthology.
I've been kicking myself for not getting around to this one sooner - it's not perfect, but it's right up my alley. The best horror anthology since their early-'80s heyday, Trick 'r Treat has a delightfully macabre sense of humor, and writer/director Michael Dougherty finds a near-perfect fun scary tone that gets to the heart of the appeal of Halloween and horror for nerds like me. The interweaving story structure isn't always completely coherent, but it's a fun choice, and some of the individual stories are among the best in any horror anthologies; the best, obviously, is Brian Cox versus Sam. It seemed kind of insane to me, watching the movie, that Warner Bros. couldn't see the movie's obvious commercial…
A TRUE Halloween film. Haven't seen one of those since the first freakin Halloween came out with Micheal Myers. But seriously, it just gets you in the feel for the 31st. Adds to the list of classic slasher films in a way but modern day. Very good and rather strange holiday movie, but is definitely a fun one.
A little creepy. A little silly. For people who enjoy the macabre but aren't really looking to be scared, it's the perfect Halloween movie.
Nem rossz. 3-4 éve nem néztem horrort, de ez elfogadható egyszer. :)
Ternyata bagus! =)) Ringan, nggak terlalu serem, tapi masih berhasil menciptakan atmosfer spooky-nya sendiri. Twist-twistnya juga oke, jalan 4-5 cerita terpisah tapi saling paralel itu juga seru. Trus itu karakter "setan"-nya, bocah pake baju oranye dengan kepala bulet kebungkus karung-nya juga unyu banget =)) #SALAH
My favorite Halloween movie.
Besides Halloween, this is my favorite Halloween movie. It is a tradition to watch it on the 31st now. A great modern, horror movie and a fun watch through out the year.
