Halloween favorite Trick ‘r Treat from Michael Dougherty (Krampus, Godzilla 2) has become required viewing for many on this night.
And so before you watch it this year (or perhaps after—especially if you’re watching for the first time), why not enjoy some videos related to the movie? Legendary Pictures has released a “From Script to Screen” video which looks at one of the scenes in the movie compared to what was written in the screenplay. The second video is one of YouTube channel Dead Meat’s “Kill Count” episodes, which shows you all of the deaths that happen in the movie.
Grab a handful of candy and head down below to give them a watch.
It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater with a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem…the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety human and otherwise try to survive the scariest night of the year.
It should go without saying, but the “Kill Count” video is one to avoid if you’ve never seen Trick ‘r Treat. And if you are one of those people who hasn’t seen it and doesn’t watch it every year on Halloween, well that just makes me feel sad.
It’s never too late to join the party, though. You can grab a copy of the movie on Blu-ray for under $10. A steal considering the use it’ll get. Then you can join the rest of us in anxiously awaiting the sequel, Trick ‘r Treat 2! Which was announced four years ago now. This also makes me feel sad.
