Trick ‘r Treat

trick 'r treat

On Saturday night I watched Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat and it was soo good! It was the perfect Halloween movie. It touched on a lot of the typical Halloween plot lines werewolves, serial killers, town legends, sexy costumes, and the Halloween spirit. The film’s creepy tagline is: Poison, Drowning, Claw, Or Knife. So Many Ways To Take A Life. Dougherty both wrote and directed the film and has also written movies like X2 and Superman Returns.

The movie connects four separate story lines. They include a school principal who is anything but your ‘pal’, a group of girls looking for a good time, a couple with opposite feelings for the holiday and a group of prankster teenagers. The film takes place in  a small Ohio town called Warren Valley.

The movie was so enveloped in the Halloween spirit that I didn’t want it to end. It was so entertaining and fun and had me asking questions left and right. But at the same time there were a lot of creepy moments! No character is who you think they are. I recommend this movie to any one who enjoyed Halloween as a kid and loves fun but eerie things.

The movie also has a great cast, Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb, Dylan Baker, Brian Cox, etc. I liked how the director would show a scene and then move the film backwards or forwards in time and you would see it from a different angle. That was a really cool touch.
