Trick Reviews

November 14, 2019
It may be a terrible slasher, but at least the third act is unintentionally hilarious.

Inferior seasonal splatter film.
November 6, 2019
This is a film that feels like it was made a couple of drafts of the script too early. Trick entertains the viewer, at least during its opening act, but fails to engage them overall.

It's like someone wrung all the satire out of the Scream franchise and replaced it with cheap edgelord viciousness.

A it's a cheesy, actionable rip-off of the John Carpenter Halloween franchise with plenty of blood and jack o'lanterns, but without a shred of originality.

Lives up to its title: it's no treat.

Hardcore gorehounds will be disappointed by the lukewarm scares. Fans of throwback films will groan at the lack of tongue-in-cheek references.

One whopper of a plot-twist briefly gives "Trick" an original hook. But by the end of the picture it's clear the filmmakers aren't really interested in exploring any of the potentially interesting sociopolitical implications of their big surprise.

Sure, I was never bored, but this movie makes zero sense.

The pic might have proved mindless fun if it had least displayed a sense of humor, but everything is played with deadly seriousness.

Trick isn't much of a Halloween treat, and like a sour apple stuffed with razor blades washing the bad taste of this one out of my mouth is going to be difficult to do.
October 18, 2019
..the shoddy plot, paper thin characters, and poor pacing sinks what could have been a solid slasher.

Those searching for Halloween viewing treats won't find it here. At every level, from technical to story, Trick is a joyless affair.

This film would feel desperate to be socially relevant if it were not so incredibly lazy in just every conceivable way.
October 16, 2019
Trick lives Halloween, breathes Halloween, and so desperately - detrimentally - wants to be another Halloween marathon mainstay.
October 14, 2019
Patrick Lussier's film is an incompetent, nihilistic exercise in gore and pseudophilosophy.
