[A to Z] T = Trick 'r Treat
TRICK'R TREAT is a horror comedy anthology film from 2007. The four stories take place on Halloween night. Each of the stories is a standalone tale with the exception of the appearance of Sam in each tale; showing up when the rules of Halloween are broken. I enjoyed all of the stories and the bookends included at each end of the film.
TRICK'R TREAT is a fun movie. I always include it in every Halloween horror movie marathon that I do every year. There was some talk of a sequel but so far nothing has materialized. I have not come across any rumors of a sequel lately either. One one hand, I think that is great because they have not tried to turn this into a franchise by quickly releasing a follow up movie of questionable quality. On the other hand, I think it is unfortunate that there have been no follow up films. CREEP and CREEP 2 have shown you can have several films years apart and maintain the quality. I think TRICK'R TREAT could do the same thing. If a sequel is never filmed I will still be happy with one very good film.
