Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater with a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem... the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety-human and otherwise-try to survive the scariest night of the year.

- Poison, Drowning, Claw, Or Knife. So Many Ways To Take A Life.
- If you don't follow the rules tonight, you won't live to see tomorrow.
- [from trailer] Steven: Wait. There's another tradition. [looks at Charlie] Steven: Always check your candy.
Mr. Kreeg: You gotta be fucking kidding me.
Chip: You must really like Halloween. Rhonda: You mean Samhain? Chip: What? Rhonda: Samhain, also known as All Hallows' Eve, also known as Halloween. Pre-dating Christianity, the Celtic holiday was celebrated on the one night between autumn and winter when the barrier between the living and the dead was thinnest, and often involved rituals that included human sacrifice. [awkward silence] Rhonda: I like your eye patch. Chip: Oh...
- The film is based on Michael Dougherty's animated short film Season's Greetings (1996), which debuted the character of Sam.
The film was originally slated to be released in October 2007 for a Halloween release. Warner Bros., without explanation or reason, pulled the film from the schedule and no reschedule date was announced. One reason might have been that Saw IV (2007) was slated for release around the same time and Warner Bros. did not want to compete against it in fears of a big opening against them. Another possible reason the film was buried by the studio was that it was possible fallout from the box office disappointment of Superman Returns (2006), which was co-written by Trick 'r Treat writer/director Michael Dougherty and both produced and directed by Bryan Singer, whose production company produced this film. There was brief talk that the film would finally be released around Halloween 2008 and possibly early 2009 but neither release ever materialized. The film was finally released straight to DVD in October 2009.
C. Ernst Harth has a cameo as Laurie's blind date, the 'Giant Baby'. In Thir13en Ghosts (2001), he played the ghost called 'The Great Child', also a giant baby. Both films are Warner Bros. releases.
Little people were used to fill in for kids trick or treating, since this film was shot mainly at night and real kids could not work these hours.
The Rock Quarry was originally conceived to be a pumpkin patch.
