Trick 'r Treat

There are people who will tell you that Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat is the ultimate Halloween movie ever. Though inexplicably shelved for two years, this is a rare horror anthology with no weak filler stories, subversive, exquisitely structured and just so goddamn entertaining you cannot go wrong. Best go in cold.

A trip back to the 80's when the goal was to excite and entertain, not torment you.
