TRICK ‘R TREAT
2007, Warner Bros., 82 min, USA, Dir: Michael Dougherty

Equally funny and frightening, TRICK ‘R TREAT captures the spirit of Halloween through four intertwined stories set on the same block. Horny virgins, homicidal school principals, crotchety old men, nosy kids, and a sack-hooded hellraiser named Sam rub shoulders on All Hallows Eve, occasionally running afoul of the night’s traditions. This loving homage to such anthologies as TALES FROM THE CRYPT boasts superb production values and a solid cast including Anna Paquin, Brian Cox and Dylan Baker.


THE NINTH CONFIGURATION
TWINKLE, TWINKLE, KILLER KANE
