DVD: Trick ’R Treat (15)
Friday 23 October 2009
As Hallowe'en approaches, Warner Home Video has released the seasonal tie-in in the hope a few unsuspecting souls may be tricked into buying it.
Trick 'r Treat follows four Hallowe'en tales over the fateful night in Winston Falls. The stories range from urban legend, to serial killer and the supernatural loosely held together by a pumpkin boy with a sack on his head. There's no surprise this film has waited two years for release. The only shock is how Brian Cox and Anna Paquin ended up in something so atrocious. In trying to span so many genres, the film fails to hit the mark with any of them. The real problem, though, is it just isn't scary. Writer-director Michael Dougherty plans a sequel. Now that's a horrific thought.
