Hype can be a huge downfall for a release like this. People may be hesitant because of the amount of time it took to come out. Trust me, the money you put into this will be well worth it.
Trick 'r Treat is by far one of the best films to come out in this genre in 10 years at least. It's intelligent, fun, sexy and above all it offers you a great story.
Since Hollywood loves to shovel shit down our throats it's no surprise they were worried about placing a New Idea into the theatre's across America.
When it comes down to it, this film delivers. Brand new Characters, Brand new plots, brand new Actors (some of them). It's a breath of fresh air into the Halloween Horror Film.
I won't throw anything away as far as plot goes, but I have to admit, Director/Writer Michael Dougherty delivers a hit & the plot twists are superb.
I have been waiting the 2 yrs. to see this film, along with everyone else. Last Sunday, I was able to attend a screening at the New Beverly Cinema in LA presented by Bloody-Disgusting.com. Cast & Crew were in attendance along w/ a packed house of eager horror fans. What a great experience to feel the audience enjoying New Horror together.
I have to say the positive response to the film is completely accurate. You'll laugh & get a good scare all at the same time. Plus the character "Sam" is a great addition to horror. I figgin loved seeing the kid dressed up like this at the screening.
Pick up a copy at a store near you or bounce over to Amazon & order it!
