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.
Trick r Treat is a fun and entertaining horror film... and a great watch on Halloween. It is done in a similar style to Tales From the Crypt, buy breaking the movie into different anthological episodes... and then wrapping them together with a common thread. The film is well written and well filmed... and does have a creepy feel at times. The effects were well done, although not extremely gory... but they refrained from using CGI. The acting was great and any movie with Anna Paquin is alright in my book.
If you want something other than the classic Halloween films to watch this October 31st... look no further... Trick r Treat is the one to see.
