For a horror movie that seems to have quite the fanbase, not to mention some good reviews from genre sites, Michael Dougherty’s Halloween-themed “Trick ‘r Treat” sure is sliding into DVD this October without much fanfare. The film currently boasts an impressive 8.8/10 rating on IMDB.com from 769 votes, and has a nice cast list to boot, including “X-Men’s” Brian Cox, “Iron Man’s” Leslie Bibb, True Blood’s Anna Paquin, and Battlestar Galactica’s Tahmoh Penikett. And yet, unless you cover horror movies, you’ve probably never even heard of the film until now, a full year after it was finished and is headed to DVD. Oh well, better late than never.
Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.
Starring Quinn Lord, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker, Leslie Bibb, Rochelle Aytes, Anna Paquin, Moneca Delain, Tahmoh Penikett, and directed by Michael Dougherty.
