Trick ‘r Treat (2007) Synopsis:

A compilation of interrelated macabre stories all taking place during the same Halloween night.

Trick ‘r Treat (2007) Review:

Halloween has always been one of the major inspiration for horror movies, but with Trick r’ Treat, Michael Dougherty (writer of X-Men 2 and Superman: Returns) is taking the Halloween concept to a new level, creating with it a masterpiece of new ideas and brilliant directing.

Trick ‘r Treat is presented as a compilation of shorts and yet has nothing to do with other compilations such as The House That Dripped Blood, Creepshow or again the recent V/H/S. Like the others, it is made of 4 relatively independent stories that all vary in genre and pace, but the difference here is that they are all interrelated and mixed in one big and bloody Halloween night. The way the story interferes with one another is brilliantly set up. The main character of one story will appear as a side character in another story, and vice versa, making it very rewarding to follow.

As for the short stories themselves, they are excellent! Ranging from the maniac killer story to the werewolves style and ghosts/monsters, they are always really surprising, with often a completely unexpected twist towards the end.

In addition, the film is perfectly directed with lots of superb shots, making the results simply awesome. The spirit of Halloween is everywhere, and Trick ‘r Treat is certainly the perfect watch on that particular day.
