This slick and twisted effort should enjoy lengthy shelf life as a Halloween perennial.

Full of atmosphere, jack-o-lanterns, fun facts and yes, plenty of blood... exactly the film horror aficionados hope to see in theaters every October.

What keeps "Trick" from attaining its lofty "Creepshow" aspirations is the lack of conflict and resolution.

Michael Dougherty's directorial debut is one treat that deserves not to be spoiled before it's opened.

The only shock is how Brian Cox and Anna Paquin ended up in something so atrocious. In trying to span so many genres, the film fails to hit the mark with any of them.

Just as it would be alongside a fire, the spooky power of the myths and legends being spun is all in the style of the storyteller. This delivers the nasty goods with fluid grace and demented glee and is bound to become Halloween appointment viewing.

Trick 'r Treat is a really good film. In fact, it's so unusual in its practical F/X approach and retro direct to video charms that a second viewing is definitely needed before confirming its almost masterpiece status.

If you can think of a better American horror anthology than this one, I owe you some Halloween candy. (OK, the first Creepshow, but that's about it.)

Feels not just like a series of stories set on Halloween, but a blood-spattered portrait of what makes this holiday so beloved, so dangerous, and so much damn fun.

Cinema Crazed

It's a greatest hits collection of old fashioned monsters and gruesome new age beasts all set to the tone of Hallow's Eve...

Instead of participating in the yearly nonsense of Saw, give Trick 'r Treat a spin instead. It's one of the best horror films of the year and a perfect addition to the holiday.

Little White Lies

Dougherty interweaves the different strands of his narrative with a healthy disinterest in the norms of chronology, and so introduces just the right amount of jigsaw-like tricksiness to keep his penny-dreadful treat smelling fresh

TRICK 'R TREAT a trip back to the 80's when the goal was to excite and entertain, not torment you... it's the type of movie you can bring anyone to, whether it's a date or your kid.

One of the most handsome, lushly detailed horror features in years. Trick 'r Treat is destined to put the most sour of souls in the Halloween spirit.

Trick 'r Treat ranks alongside John Carpenter's Halloween as traditional October viewing and I can't imagine a single horror fan that won't fall head over heels in love with it.
