    Seriously underrated, definitely belongs on a top list. You can tell that the people who made this really love and appreciate Halloween. Great flick! 6 years 7 months ago

    Four-and-a-half "Tales of Terror" are interwoven in Trick r Treat, a bit of Halloween fun from director Michael Dougherty who would later bring us Krampus, very MUCH in the same vein. See, if you don't have the Halloween spirit, you might very well buy the farm in this movie, usually but not exclusively thanks to its cute little monster, who I feel is immediately iconic. Are other holidays as dangerous as Halloween and Christmas, Mr. Dougherty? As to tone, it's a black comedy, with lots of fun fake-outs and twists in every story. The links between the stories are amusing too, and it doesn't really feel like an anthology film. Think of it as Magnolia for horror fans. Originally, it was supposed to have a synchronized release with a comic book, which explains the comic booky opener, but plans for that fell apart and it's just enigmatic now, as if they were playing overt tribute to old EC horror comics like Creepshow did. Well, there are worse ideas. 2 weeks ago
