Trick ‘R Treat Trailer

There are many “holiday classics,” out there and most of them are centered around christmas. Unfortunately there are far fewer ones centered around Halloween, but I think Trick ‘R Treat deserves to be put at the top of your list.

I can’t imagine a movie that celebrates the holiday better. A horror anthology film written and directed by Michael Doughherty that weaves several horror tales together to teach us the meaning of Halloween and it’s icons as well as creating a new one in the form of Sam. A strange being that appears to be a child in costume wearing a sack as a mask who is the overseer of the evenings terrifying events as well punishing those who fail to adhere to the traditions of halloween. Finally, Halloween has a mascot; Christmas has Santa Claus, Easter it’s bunny and now Halloween has Sam!

Trick ‘R Treat may not be the most terrifying horror movie you’ll see, but it is most definitely the smartest and most entertaining Halloween movie you’ll ever experience.
