2007’s Trick ‘r Treat finally hits theaters
At the 2007 Austin, Texas annual Butt-Numb-a-Thon film festival, director Mike Dougherty (Godzilla: King of the Monsters) screened his horror film, Trick or treats. The film will then be delayed for the next two years, and even when it does come out in December 2009, it will only be through limited screenings. But it was basically dumped on DVD, where it lived on as a cult classic. Warner Bros., however, decided to give the film its due on the big screen because it technically celebrates its 15th anniversary.
The WB Classic Films Twitter announced on Friday that Trick or treats would be on view during the month of October, as well as Scream 2, The lost boys, and the original Halloween. . If you haven’t seen it, the film is an anthology piece featuring a quartet of stories set during the spookiest of holidays. Connecting the four stories is the appearance of Sam (Quinn Lord), a trick or treater wearing a woven bag over his head. Included in the film’s cast are Dylan Baker, Leslie Bibb, Brian Cox and Anna Paquin, the latter two before their respective big shows on HBO. Succession and true blood.

For those who live near Regal Cinemas, Trick or treats will begin its theatrical release on October 6. However, it’s currently unclear if the film will screen in non-Regal theaters like AMC or Cinemark, and for how long. With the popularity of horror films in October in particular, I hope the participation will be worth it. Maybe it will help push forward that sequel Dougherty said he wants to do. almost a decade ago.
