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 HAPPY HOLIDAYS from BACKWOODS HORROR.
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! Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Just came across this bit ‘o news over at the good folks at Dread Central:
It’s about goddamn time someone tried to get werewolves back on primetime TV. Sure there have been some shows since “Werewolf: The Series” that have made minimal effort, but it sounds like Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty’s Fox show “Bitches” will be the one we’ve been waiting for.
“It’s about four women living in New York City who are werewolves,” Dougherty told the Fangoria Radio crew the other night, “It’s Sex & The City with werewolves! They seduce people, then they eat them! The series will answer the questions: how do they feed, where do they work… It’s very funny.”
“Bitches” will be kicking into production early next year. Just how much of a mix of humor and horror there will be remains to be seen, but it’s got werewolves so I’m there. Let’s hope it makes it past the pilot, at least!
Man, I’m just going to be straight up with you guys…Trick ‘r Treat looks kickass, but this show is gonna suck donkey dick. First, we’ve got werewolves in the city…no man, that just doesn’t work, werewolves are forest monsters. Second, “Sex And The City meets Werewolves?” Are you shitting me? No offense Dougherty, but what the fuck are you thinking? Vampires in the city, yeah, but werewolves? Nah man, that shit won’t fly. The chicks may dig it though. I’ll check it out when it comes out, but I’m tellin’ ya, it’s gonna be a stinking pile of shit.
