That’s right boils ‘n ghouls. Perhaps one of the greatest Halloween Horror films to come our way in decades, TRICK ‘r TREAT is finally getting a sequel. While I think the film is one of those masterpieces that doesn’t necessarily need a sequel, with the right people involved, I think we, the fans, may very well have another masterpiece on our hands!
[Recently, at the] Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles, there was a special screening of Trick ‘r Treat for Beyond Fest. This screening was also live streamed and featured a Q&A with Bryan Singer and stars of the film. It was during the Q&A that the subject of “Trick ‘r Treat 2? was brought up. Michael Dougherty, the film’s director, said it was out of his hands. That’s when a representative from Legendary Pictures stood up and shouted “Let’s make a sequel!” and then the screen behind the Q&A participants lit up with the Trick ‘r Treat 2 logo. It was also revealed that Dougherty would be directing the new film.
It’s that time of year again boils ‘n ghouls. That time of year when the air becomes cool and crisp. When dusk brings a brilliant orange hue and long, mysterious shadows. That time of year when the smell of woodsmoke drifts upon the brisk night wind. When the leaves carpet the ground with brilliant shades of red, orange, yellow, and brown. It is that time of year when a Jack ‘o Lantern, so carefully carved, sits glowing upon the steps of homes everywhere. When children stalk the night to trick or treat. It is a time of monsters, of werewolves, vampires, witches and ghosts. It is time…for Halloween!
If you’re reading this, then there’s a good chance that, like me, you’ve waited all year for this as the entire month of October is Halloween for me (hell, I could say it’s Halloween all year round here at BackwoodsHorror). And the day itself? I’m not yet certain what I’ll be doing, but I’m for DAMN sure it’s going to be memorable (IF I can remember it…heh…). So dust off your costumes, or make or buy new ones, because it’s time to get out there and celebrate the time of year when Horror in every form imaginable is brought to the forefront of every heart and mind.
TRICK ‘R TREAT’S Sam would like to remind you all that Halloween can be celebrated every holiday of the year. So, enjoy the video below, and HAPPYZOMBIE JESUS DAY (aka EASTER) from BACKWOODSHORROR and the folks over at FearNet!
I realize it’s a bit late as the Backwoods Horror offices have been in the middle of a move during the Holiday Season, but Sam from 2009′s (well, 2006 before Warner shelved it) film of the year TRICK ‘R TREAT is back again with Holiday greetings with the help of a little girl with a shared interest. Enjoy the video below, and HAPPYHOLIDAYS from BACKWOODSHORROR.
Here is the first official trailer for the upcoming MISCHIEF NIGHT(note, link does not work in Chrome), directed by Travis Baker (who worked on films such as HOSTEL, and 2001 MANIACS).
In The film a teenaged babysitter is stalked by a masked madman but in an unusual turn of events, when victim and victimizer come face-to-face, they begin to develop romantic feelings for each other. From what we know of the casting thus far, the film will star Malcolm McDowell, Brooke Anne Smith, Marc Valera, and Erik Palladino. I have never heard of 3 of the 4 cast members, but one or two of them may shine in this flick. It seems like a strange blend of HALLOWEEN, SCREAM, TRICK ‘r TREAT, and Romantic Comedies (perhaps the most horrifying of all cinema genres).
For all you boils ‘n ghouls out there with deaddies, rotting or not, here’s a little something from FearNet featuring Sam, everyone’s favorite spirit of Halloween from TRICK ‘r TREAT (one of my now favorite flicks, one to be watched every year at Halloween). So dig up your pop, (maybe he wants his cake – pat yourself on the back with someone else’s arm if you got that reference) and sit down to watch this little clip in the spirit of the holiday. And don’t forget, just 5 more months till HALLOWEEN!
Below is the short, animated film from Michael Dougherty. It was something of a short first draft for his absolute masterpiece Trick ‘r Treat. Coming soon will be an in-depth review (I’m not entirely certain I did one…but even if I did, you’ll get another one, because it’s THE HALLOWEEN MOVIE!) of Trick ‘r Treat, so stay tuned!
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!
