Trick Or Treats On Halloween

Happy Halloween from Retro Slashers! I’ll be celebrating all weekend – because one day a year just isn’t enough. The Michael Myers flicks are the defaults to fall back on, but round this time of year I find solace in alternatives like the late Gary Graver’s Trick Or Treats (1982 – not to be confused with the 1986 heavy metal horror romp). Like 99.% of my favorite movies, a movie typically trampled on even by the genre-enlightened, it has an all-star cast, a sense of pure fun, and a near real-time pace for the progression of All Hallows Eve.

  1. Hmm… Never heard of this one.

  2. I have 2 VHS of this one. The concept of the film was good, I enjoyed it but it was filmed WAY too dark. There are some things that don’t make sense in the screenplay but I’m willing to overlook it because I like the film’s atmosphere. I’m hoping a DVD will come to light but I’m not holding my breath

  3. I give it props just for the old school horror slasher poster :P.

  4. dull, dull, dull

  5. ditto, alison, ditto

  6. Just wanted to post that New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles is playing The Stepfather on Sat. at midnight!

  7. If I remember correctly you spend a lot of time just watching the chunky kid play pranks on the babysitter. I do remember Carradine and his totally 80’s shiny-ass suit/ponytail combo.

    I was surprised to find out that it was [R]. I remember it being so tame that I thought it must have been made for TV. ‘Course it has been 3 grips since I’ve seen it. In fact, I think I’ll comb the house for it right now…
