A new trailer for Michael Dougherty’s upcoming anthology of good ‘ol Halloween carnage, TRICK ‘R TREAT has hit the web courtesy of Fangoria. The DVD and BLU-RAY are set for release on October 6th, 2009 after quite a long delay thanks to Warner Bros. (nearly 3 years). Check out the trailer below:
Trick ‘r Treat is set on Halloween night with 4 terrifying tales of the supernatural interwoven throughout. This synopsis from Fango:
A high school principal (DYLAN BAKER) moonlights as a vicious serial killer; the quest of a young virgin (ANNA PAQUIN) for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carries out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences; and a cantankerous old man (BRIAN COX) battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.
Ok, so TRICK ‘r TREAT, one of the most anticipated films EVER here at the BackwoodsHorror shack has an official, set-in-stone release date of OCTOBER 6th. I’m crazy fucking excited for this one and I can’t wait to review it! Check out the trailer before and keep checking back with BackwoodsHorror.com as a new trailer will be hitting the intarwebz soon! Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Well now, according to they boys over at Shock Till You Drop, TRICK ‘R TREAT IS still with Warner Brothers, though now it’d seem that they’re going to release it directly to DVD. FUCK A DUCK, MAN, DVD? If any flick the dumbass mofos over at WB had their grubby little mitts on DESERVED theatrical release it’d be Trick ‘R Treat. Jeez. Click a link or two above for more info. on the movie. I’m just tired of this back and forth bullshit. Anyway, I suppose I’d should be happy that I’d be getting anything at all. No realease date on the dvd yet, but stay tuned: same bat time, same bat channel, and I’m sure I’ll be passing along that information.
More to come including a retrospective on Joe Bob Briggs, one of the most awesome southern horror personalities around and always a friend to The Backwoods Horror crew.
