For the first time ever, writer and director Michael Dougherty’s Halloween classic Trick ‘r Treat is getting a theatrical release! This is one of my favorite Halloween movies. I watch it every year, and this year I’ll get to watch it on the big screen, which is pretty exciting!
In Trick ‘r Treatinterwoven stories demonstrate that some traditions are best not forgotten as the residents of a small town (Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb, Brian Cox) face real ghosts and goblins on Halloween. Tales of terror reveal the consequences of extinguishing a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight and a grumpy hermit's encounter with a mischievous trick-or-treating Demon.
Those tales of terror include a staid high school principal who is a Halloween serial killer (Baker); a college-age virgin seeking that special guy (Paquin); a woman (Bibb) who hates dressing up for Halloween and whose husband is obsessed with the holiday; and a group of young teens who pull a cruel prank on Rhonda (Samm Todd), a Halloween traditionalist who recounts the horror of the Halloween School Bus Massacre.
