A creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year from writer-director Michael Dougherty (Krampus, Godzilla: King Of The Monsters), Trick r Treat takes the Creepshow/Tales From The Crypt approach to nefarious new depths with four interwoven tales set on Halloween night. A high school principal (Dylan Baker) moonlights as a vicious serial killer; the quest of a young virgin (Anna Paquin) for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carries out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences; and a cantankerous old man (Brian Cox) battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.

The story is almost told in a Tarantino-esque style of having multiple stories all happening at once and being shown from different viewpoints and time frames. At it's core it is about the rules of Halloween and if you don't obey them then bad things are coming for you. If you love Halloween or just want to see something truly unique then give this a watch!
The 2009 blu-ray by Warner Brothers presented the film in a quite good VC-1 encoded transfer that topped out at about 25 mbps during busy sections along with a decent selection of extras. Scream Factory in 2018 would give the film some collector's edition attention with a fully loaded disc that stands as the definitive release of this fine film.
A new 2K transfer transfer from original film elements was completed by Scream Factory and approved by the writer/director. The new disc features an AVC encode averaging 35 mbps throughout. While the improvement is not a night and day difference compared to the old disc, colors look better and more saturated, contrast and black levels are improved and film grain is better resolved. There is also a bit more picture information visible around the frame. I did direct comparisons with the 2009 disc and there is a noticeable uptick in picture quality overall. Audio is presented in punchy 5.1 lossless sound with English subtitles being included.

All of the new extra content is very well done and informative. Add in all of the extras from the original disc along with the improved transfer and fans can feel confident in upgrading from the 2009 disc to Scream Factory's edition. You can also flip around the sleeve to have different alternative poster art but I have to admit that the newly commissioned artwork is spectacular.
Scream Factory delivers the goods once again. Highly recommend!
I saw this movie on a movie channel last year and while it is a little cornball I have to say it has become my instant favorite halloween movie.
No spoilers here.
This movie intertwines 4 different stories that if you go back you can see all of them happening in the background of the other stories.
While it is a bit gruesome in some places, in the end you'll come to love its little villain "Sam" as the story unfolds and gives you more insight into our little halloween gate keeper.
Truly this movie will become a halloween classic. The characters while somewhat over the top all come together as believable and fun, with a little bit of OMG mixed in.
This is not for the young ones either, but everyone else, go for it.
One last thing, always obey the rules of halloween, especially if Sam is around
Considering my tastes, this is one of the best horrors I have ever seen. It has lots of humor, plot twists, excellent atmosphere, scares and unpredictability, and it is a unique story (which is rare in horror films), and just a great all-around film.
If you like horror movies don't pass on this one.
