Hello, hello, hello, folks and welcome to the 31st and final 31 in 31. Not So Silent Mike and I had originally planned a podcast for the final one but due to circumstances outside of our control we weren’t able to make it happen. However, it is with my great pleasure to bring you 2007′s “Trick ‘R Treat” as the final 31 in 31!
“Trick ‘R Treat” is written and directed by Mike Dougherty and has a solid cast with Dylan Baker, Brian Cox, Anna Paquin just to name a few. As the film suggests with the title, it takes place on a Halloween night. Within the film there are five small stories that intersect in one way or another. Each mini story is also a myth about Halloween (Always check your candy, never take down your decorations before Halloween is over, the local town’s ghost story, the old crazy guy’s house you never trick or treat at, etc). Throughout all the mini stories there is one common character known as Sam. Sam serves as the spirit of Halloween. He makes sure everyone is upholding the ‘rules’ of Halloween and being respectful of the traditions.
“Trick ‘R Treat” is one of those movies that comes along every few years that just blows you away. Once you figure out that the characters and stories intersect with each other, you’ll want to watch it again and again to see how it fits. Also, every time you watch it, you find something new. “Trick ‘R Treat” is definitely one of my personal favorite movies of all-time. Though I am a bit biased to Halloween in general, this is quite possibly the perfect Halloween movie.
Before I go, I just wanted to thank my friends here at Comic Book Therapy for letting me take part in the fun month-long project of 31 in 31. It’s not everyday or month you get a chance to talk about some of your favorite horror movies and that’s something I love to do. So having that outlet for the month of October to do so was really fun for me. I’d also like to wish everybody out there reading this a Happy Halloween/Hallowe’en/Samhain/Sauin!
