Trick 'r Treat

After Rob Zombie's relaunch of the Halloween franchise it became more or less clear that the holiday held on October 31st was in dire need for some truly fresh scares. Not that the last edition of Michael Myers' adventures was particularly bad - it's just that apart from the 40 minute peek in the Boogieman's past it didn't offer anything new to care about. The arrival of Trick 'r Treat might compensate for this.

The film is an anthology of five Halloween-related stories. The one thing that ties the stories together is the presence of Sam, a mysterious trick-or-treater with a burlap pumpkin mask who may or may not be just child in costume. Frankly, I haven't seen the film yet but this premise along with the poster shown below is enough to make me curious. Just why is it, then, that the film never got wide distribution is beyond me, but here's three times hooray! for the DVD release scheduled in timely fashion for October 27, 2009. Seriously, can't wait to see this.
