Come get your all treat, no trick fix of Cinemosity! Trick ‘R’ Treat is a rather wonderful little tribute to All Hallows’ Eve that perfectly distills a warm love for the day. Halloween seemed to dwindle in popularity during the 90’s but as we headed into the 00’s a lot of people who enjoyed it as a kid now had kids or young relatives of their own to celebrate with. Though Trick ‘R’ Treat faced delay due to stupid Hollywood studio politics it rode the wave of a renewed enjoyment of Halloween to become a new horror cult favorite. A horror anthology that plays fast and loose with the “rules” associated with that particular subgenre, rather than serving us up multiple courses of stories Trick ‘R’ Treat interweaves its tales as a particularly spooky Halloween night unfolds in a small town. It’s fun, it’s silly, it’s gory, and it fucking Brian Cox in it!
We’re going to have one more look at a horror anthology for our next episode: NIGHT TRAIN TO TERROR! God and Satan compete for the future of the world through the stories of passengers on the train. It’s very 80’s, has two actors from SPACE MUTINY in it, and you can watch it on Shudder.
