Trick r Treat

by on May.29, 2010, under Daily Review

This is such a cool film. It’s nice n stylish in a glossy american comic kinda way. This is Creepshow for the 21st century and it’s a delight to watch. Based around a bunch of stories all intertwined set on the same night, one Halloween evening. There’s vampires, werewolves, psychos, creepy kids, fancy dress and the tortoirous spirit of Halloween in the form of the unstopable kid with a pumpkin head.
It’s light and fun, creepy and dark and atmospheric in places, but it rolls along at a great pace. Director Michael Dougherty has done a great job here with a cool bunch of actors including Anna Paquin (True Blood) & Tahmoh Penikett (BSG) but the real star is the pumpkin kid who is amazing.

    Hi Geoff – i recently watched a Thai horror that was very similar in style to this called 4bia but this time the 4 parts were seperate in both story & director. Thanks for your comments on Martyrs – why did you think Madame did what she did at the end….? Helen
