Trick 'r Treat (2007)

Tom:
Trick 'r Treat,2007,USA
Director: Michael Dougherty
Stars: Anna Paquin,Brian Cox and Dylan Baker



I didn't really know anything about Trick 'R Treat going into it, but i was absolutely blown away by how enjoyable and how much fun it was. Trick 'R Treat consists of multiple interwoven storyline's that take place on Halloween night, including an every day Principal who has a secret life as a serial killer,Some College Girls throwing a sinister surprise party,A group of teenagers playing a deadly prank,a woman who hates Halloween and has to contend with her holiday obsessed husband and a Halloween hating curmudgeon who lives alone and is visited by a mysterious costumed assailant named Sam. Trick 'r Treat had a delayed release to theatres and eventually never arrived and resurfaced on DVD,One of the main reason it was shelved was to not coincide with the Halloween release of "Saw IV".I cant believe studios were in favour of a fourth sequel in a tired franchise like Saw,instead of this very original Halloween anthology tale, This film in my opinion is absolutely brilliant,You can really tell that Director Michael Dougherty has a real passion for Halloween and when it looked like the anthology film was dead this film has revived it.Overall Trick 'r Treat is a terrific horror anthology,it is so much fun and I consider it to be a future classic and to be watched alongside John Carpenter's "Halloween" on October 31st for years to come and i can definitely see "Sammy" becoming a horror icon

Tom: 3.5/4
