Halloween Countdown: Trick R Treat

Based on the poll, that majority of readers like Halloween posts. But some are indifferent or get tired of the saturation. So I’ve decided to do a Halloween countdown, but alternate Halloween and regular posts (which tend to be somewhat dark anyway). Sound fair?

I’ll start with Breehn Burn’s concept art for the 2008 film Trick ‘r Treat. For the record, I have not seen this movie, but I love the art and artifacts.

What a great character! This is the animatronic model of “Sam:”

The vinyl toy is pretty wonderful.

Has anyone seen this movie? Is it worth it for the adorably macabre little Sam?

  1. Movie is being released on DVD shortly. Finally.
    Few have seen it.
    Was perhaps what Sam looked like supposed to be a surprise?????
    Uh oh.

  2. I DID see it at a film festival in Toronto. And actually (in my opinion), Sam is just the cherry on the sundae when it comes to the goodies this film delivers.

  3. Son of Sam Says:

    I watched this film last night and my immediate respond when it finished was: I want to watch it again right now.

    I’ve been a horror-fan all my life, but this is one of the best films I’ve ever seen!
