Wait there's another tradition...Always check your candy.

Hello I am the movie encyclopedia and if no one else will see it, I will.

Halloween has had many traditions over the years. Whether it is jack o lanterns, TPing someones house, or dressing up in costumes and getting candy there are many traditions for Halloween. We now have a new one...Trick R Treat.

Trick R Treat is the Direct to DVD movie done by long time screenplay writer Michael Dougherty based on a cartoon short film that he wrote and directed a while ago (see youtube clip). He both writes and directs this Halloween masterpiece and its produced by Brian Singer.

Trick R Treat is based around four different stories that all tie in together. Each are morbid and gory but at the same time sweet and funny. They are extremly well acted with actors such as Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb, Dylan Baker and Brian Cox leading the way. The film is only 82 minutes but there is never a minute that goes by where it is boring. Each story is engrossing and very interesting with lots of eye opening twists that leave you scared and happy at the same time. It mixes the scares and the laughs quite well and its all tied together well in the end. I guess you could thank Sam for that. Sam is the kid on the poster and is featured in every story.

Trick R Treat is full of great surprises and for a lower budget direct to DVD movie its phenominal. It was supposed to come out two years ago but due to competition against Saw and other horror films, this one was pushed back and ultimately just shoved out to DVD. But its a great movie and an instant cult classic and a must watch for every Halloween. I will go as far to say its the best Direct to DVD movie Ive ever seen.




  1. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
