Movie Info

Interwoven stories demonstrate that some traditions are best not forgotten as the residents (Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker) of a small town face real ghosts and goblins on Halloween. Tales of terror reveal the consequences of extinguishing a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight and a grumpy hermit's encounter with a sinister trick-or-treater.

Audience Reviews for Trick 'r Treat

    Holiday movies are difficult for me, because one: they're often cheesy or tacky, and two: they're usually catered towards kids. Here we have a low budget, highly entertaining piece of filmmaking celebrating what is arguably the scariest night of the year: Halloween. Trick r' Treat is a series of stories that touch on many classic horror tales, polished with a modern twist: a psychopathic high school principal (played by a hilarious Dylan Baker) who leaves out a bowl of suspicious candy on his stoop, a group of teens who go to party in the woods, and a band of kids who go searching for an urban legend. These stories eventually converge at the end of the brisk 82 minute running time, making for an incredibly satisfying and memorable movie. The best part of Trick r' Treat is Sam: a young boy wearing a burlap sack as a mask, who makes small appearances in every story. Pondering his motives and origins is one of the most satisfying aspects of the film, and he's earned a high spot on the list of great horror villains. Trick r' Treats strongest selling point is it's lasting appeal: since it's 2007 release, I've watched this film six or seven times, and always around Halloween. This is not only the best Halloween movie around, it's one of the best horror movies ever made. Ten years later, the impending cold and jack o' lanterns carry with it another malevolent presence: the need to watch Trick r' Treat.

    This was a fun movie. While it wasn't truly that scary, it was a fun interweaving of multiple separate stories that take place in a small town in Ohio on Halloween. They dive into their own separate genres from the serial slasher, to ghost stories, to monster stories, and even humor horror. It was a good flick and a great attempt at a more modern Creepshow. While this isn't in the pantheon of horror films, I'd recommend it regardless.

    The cult horror film Trick 'r Treat is a clever and well-crafted anthology film that delivers some frightful scares. The stories of a group of kids collecting jack-o-lanterns, a homicidal school principal, 4 young girls on the prowl, and a mischievous treat-or-treater all come together and intertwine on one fateful All Hallows' Eve. Featuring Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Leslie Bibb, Dylan Baker, and Britt McKillip, the film has a strong cast. And, director Michael Dougherty does a good job at creating an atmospheric and foreboding tone. Also, the costumes have a quaint Americana feel that gives them a timeless quality. However, a couple of the plots are a little hard to follow, and some of the comedy doesn't work. Yet despite a few rough edges, Trick 'r Treat is a fun and entertaining homage to the spirit of Halloween.
