It's not a perfect flick, by any stretch. It isn't the least bit scary, for one, and it has some awkward dialogue and pacing. But darned if it doesn't hold up as a nifty little satire. Oh, and the scene where the dead metal star seduces the girl through her walkman - that's pretty hot, and pretty much caters directly to the frustrated adolescent male mind. Which only illustrates the point more.
I'm a sucker for good genre movies, so I'm a sucker for "Trick or Treat." Plus it's great to see Skippy try to stretch a little.
The whole film starts with a young man named Eddie(Family Ties' Mark Price)who is an outcast at his high school and is also into very loud heavy metal hard rock. His idol is a controversial rocker named Sammi Curr(Tony Fields, may he rest in peace)and he has a huge poster of him over his bed. Eddie is writing a fan letter to Sammi and after sealing the envelope with the letter in it, he hears the most distressing news that Sammi is killed in a hotel fire. He turns to a DJ friend of his named Nuke(Gene Simmons of KISS)and Nuke gives him Sammi's last album on an acetate disc as a souvenir and when Eddie plays it, he receives a message from beyond the grave by Sammi with ideas on how he can get even with his enemies in school. First, Eddie lets Sammi do what he wills, but later, Eddie tries to back out of the plan, but Sammi won't stop. But when it gets out of control on the night of the annual Halloween dance in the high school gymnasium, Eddie now knows that he has to stop Sammi Curr before it's too late because the whole human race is at stake. I won't give too much away as I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen this film as of yet.
Trick or Treat is a much underrated horror classic. It is a very entertaining horror film and is also the first horror film completely centered on Heavy Metal rock and roll music. It is also a wonderful and fun romp that can be watched over and over again anytime and it doesn't have to be October 31st.Read more ›
