Trick 'r Treat (2007)

Director: Michael Dougherty

Starring: Brian Cox

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Poison, Drowning, Claw, Or Knife. So Many Ways To Take A Life.

Plot: Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Yeah.

Here's a rare thing - a horror anthology done right. The stories are all fun and they tie into one larger one that serves as the wraparound. What's more is it's fun. I enjoyed it although I'm not as coo coo for Cocoa Puffs as a lot of people. It's remarkable that WB didn't put this out in theaters and let it sit on a shelf for a couple of years before releasing on DVD. Thankfully they at least did that. Who knows what's wrong with people that run the studios. Anyway, check this one out. It's one of the better horror anthologies out there and one of the better (and more fun) horror flicks to come out in quite some time.
