Halloween horror from director Michael Dogherty which combines four separate tales regarding a secret serial killing high-school principal, a college girl virgin, a woman who hates Halloween as much as her husband loves it and a group of school kids who carry out a wickedly sadistic prank. As the night unfolds, danger descends, as unspeakable things roam free and the townsfolk must do all they can in order to survive. Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Rochelle Aytes, Brian Cox and Leslie Bibb co-star.
The doorbell rings, the cry goes out: Trick 'R Treat! But, wait. What's actually going on during this ghostly All Hallows Eve? Something eerie and unexpected. Something splattered and spooky. Something that brings ghouls, vampires and werewolves into the night. Answer the door – a shocking surprise awaits. From producer Bryan Singer (director of X-Men and Superman Returns) and writer-director Michael Dougherty (co-scripter of X2 and Superman Returns) comes a multitale bag of wicked yarns, four cleverly interlocked stories built on Shocktober admonitions like always check the candy and don't extinguish the jack-o-lantern before midnight. So answer the door now: Experience horror made for today's fright fan.
A fun film in the style of Creepshow. Four seemingly unrelated tales all tied together by the end. Nice use of misdirection and subversion. Read morePublished 20 days ago by R. Bayley
