Critic Reviews for Trick or Treat
All utter rubbish but fun, benefiting greatly from outrageous SFX à la Videodrome, and from two neat cameos by real life HM stars Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons.
It's genial, not too frightening and even rather sweet.
I loved metal music when this came out, hence I loved the film. Yes, it's trash, but it's special trash to me.
Audience Reviews for Trick or Treat
'Trick or Treat' is the prime example of a sleeper: a film that was overlooked upon its release and is actually a kitschy, supremely fun picture in its own right. I love the anti-glorification of the self-destructive rockstar lifestyle and how impressionable teenagers would become drawn to it. Despite their prominence on the box art, Simmons and Ozzy are only in crucial, tongue-in-cheek cameos. Price's angst is relatable and his seance of Sammi is a clever integration to vent his frustrations with the jocks and other cliques. For his directorial debut, Charles Martin Smith has forged an unsettling and rollicking occult thriller.
A horror movie where the spirit of a dead heavy metal star is haunting teens! I loved it, it's a fun awesome heavy metal horror movie.
Now this is a good movie that I think a whole lot of people either haven't seen or never knew existed. but if you get the chance to see it i suggest go for it. Marc Price from tv's Family Ties stars as the nerd who is being bullied in school and only has his rock n roll god so to speak to turn to. Well much like his life his idol untimely dies in a fire which gives him the idea to get the rock n roller's spirit ressurected to hand out some much needed payback. Gene Simmons and Ozzy Ozbourne do hilarious cameos in this with a great booming soundtrack by Fastway. would be great to find this on original format of dvd yet alone blu ray for that matter.
