No tricks here, just a treat.
Trick ‘r Treat is written and directed by Michael Dougherty. It stars Dylan Baker, Rochelle Aytes, Anna Paquin and Brian Cox. Music is by Douglas Pipes and cinematography by Glen MacPherson. Trick ‘r Treat plays out as an anthology of four Halloween related stories. One tiny figure with a burlap sack over its head links the film together.
Warner Brothers kept it on the shelf for two years, a mistake since it happens to be a delightful little frightener that appears to be made with a love of omnibus shockers from back in the day. It’s never overtly scary or bloody, but it has a twisted slickness that is rather pleasing in this day and age of poor horror remakes and boorish cash cow sequels. Neatly performed by the cast and with tech credits high from the camera folk, it homages simple horror pleasures as it celebrates Halloween. With a glint in its eye and a macabre smile on the lips, this non linear treat should be perennial viewing for the Halloween hordes. Especially since it rewards still further on repeat viewings. 8/10
A better-than-expected horror anthology with some creepy good Halloween scares.
What a treat. Best Halloween film ever produced. BRAVO!
Over the past 12 months, I have heard countless good things about the horror film, Trick ‘r Treat. How it was scary. How it was going to be a huge hit and the most talked about horror film since a hockey masked serial killer started stalking Camp Crystal Lake. How it won the Audience Award at Screamfest and how anyone who has seen the film on the festival circuit has wondered why the hell the film hasn’t been recognized with a major distribution deal.
Twelve months is a long time, and even with all the good buzz surrounding the film, I began to wonder if it was worth the hype. When I happened across the screening of the film as part of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival 2009, I did everything I could to get tickets (which simply meant going on-line and purchasing a pair). To add to my experience, I brought my girlfriend along who, as luck would have it, enjoys horror films about as much as Octomom enjoys feeding time. My girlfriend is a screamer and I knew she would spend most of the movie either digging her nails into my arm or watching the movie through the half inch space between her fingers over her eyes.
This was going to be fun.
As I arrived at the theatre, it was evident that I was not the only one who was incredibly excited about the screening. There was someone in line who I thought was going to pee himself in exhilaration waiting to be let into the theatre. Others were talking rather enthusiastically about what they had heard about the film and how they couldn’t wait for the October DVD release (even though they had yet to see the damn thing!).
As the lights went dim, the audience joined in whistles, cheers and applause. The Trick ‘r Treating had begun.
Trick ‘r Treat interweaves multiple stories in an anthology. Think of Creepshow as done by Tarantino and you get the idea.
The first story is short but sets the tone. It is only about 10 minutes (if that) in length and shows what can happen to you if you blow out the candle of a jack-o-lantern before midnight. This platform lead into four additional stories. One of an urban legend where a school bus of children went over a cliff, one of a school principle with serial killer tendencies, a story about a young girl trying to find a mate at a Halloween festival, and finally, a story about an old man who is haunted by a child like character (named Sam).
All five of the stories were incredible interesting, wonderfully shot and gloriously thrilling. Directed by Michael Dougherty (X-Men 2, Superman Returns) the film featured familiar faces such as Anna Paquin (True Blod), Brian Cox (X-Men 2), Dylan Baker (Spider-Man) and Leslie Bibb.
Each story was as good as the last. I thought they were all outstanding, and I now belong to the long list of screeners that wonder why the hell this film hasn’t been able to secure a distribution deal. When horror films like Orphan and the Unborn can get wide releases, why can’t a fantastically scary and well produced film like Trick ‘r Treat get any respect? Trick ‘r Treat is not the gore fest that many horror fans might be expecting. There are definitely elements of fright, but this is just good storytelling with a few scares and blood thrown in. There is some nudity, but nothing that should have this film slapped with a ‘Restricted’ banner.
The movie arrives on DVD in October and there is no doubt it will instantly become a classic. I could argue that this is maybe the best Halloween film ever made as it truly captured everything that is loved and feared on October 31st.
Besides Many Continuity Issues, TRICK Suffers From Interminable Other Weaknesses!

Bad things.Expectations!…More often than not, they turn around and bite you. TRICK ‘r TREAT bit back hard! If ever I wanted to have an enjoyable genre movie experience, TRICK was it! A myriad of factors prevented me from doing so. At least viewers are spared from long-suffering, because after a scant 77 minutes, the end credits begin.
Here is one very clear example of its myriad shortcomings: Toward the end, a neighbor, who is injured via a run in with a rather indescribable child monster, comes out of his empty home soon after with his right arm, shoulder and head ALL very tidily and professionally bandaged. (He must keep a live-in-nurse chained-up in the basement?!?) And how they managed to apply pristine white bandages without as much as a single drop of blood visible anywhere is nothing short of a miracle!
Besides continuity issues, TRICK suffers from interminable other weaknesses. The only redeeming aspect of TRICK is its technical and visual excellence. Cinematography, editing, sets, set decoration, costumes, sound and sound effects, all exhibited levels considerably above average, albeit very clichéd and practically devoid of any originality.
**** HUGE SPOILER CONUNDRUM Ahead! Read it and I’ll bet 10 to 1 you’ll say, “O.K., Right! Don’t want to see it!” On the Other HandDon’t read it, go ahead and see the movie and you’ll come back later and say, “DAMN! Sure wish I had read Tony’s SPOILER BEFORE! “****
What does TRICK consider to be its “Trump card”? Apparently, killing off a bus-load of special needs kids! Oh, and just to be fair, so that they’re not the ONLY kids singled out for an untimely end, other children are offed as well! Now I don’t know about you, but I do think this is really scraping the bottom of the barrel! Is it incongruous to say, “Well, at least these killings were done tastefully”?
Writers and the director seemed to overlook the “sometimes MORE is LESS” factor, and, although the storyline is not linear, but rather circular, crammed in serial killers, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, zombies, a monster kid and a murderer-for-hire in several unrelated, and sometimes unresolved story threads in ONLY 77 minutes! When all is said and done, I’m sure a lot of die hard fans of the genre will enjoy TRICK much more than I. Sorry Horror/Terror FANS:4.5*…ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!?!?(If you can!)
