While we have our favorites we like to watch on Halloween, most of the ones I remember are really about slashers and how can we kill the next victim. For some, those movies are enjoyable, but they get repetitive and I just don’t care for that.
That is where “Trick ‘r Treat” thankfully comes in and does a smart, creepy collection of intertwined stories that’s fun, and really something I don’t think we’ve seen before.
It’s Halloween night, and as usual, you have your range of costumes and revelers, but you also have rules, rules that some don’t seem to care about, like not blowing out your jack-o-lantern until the morning after, or making sure children get candy. Things that seem insignificant come back to haunt several rule breakers. And while most movies have the happy ending or shy away from killing a child, this movie thankfully doesn’t get into that rut.
I won’t give away too much as there are some great reveals/climaxes as each of the stories unfold, but if you give it a try, I do not think you will be disappointed.
