Set on Halloween | 31 Nights of Horror Challenge

For this year’s 31 Nights of Horror Challenge, the Day 31 prompt was Set on Halloween. What better than the cult classic, Trick r Treat (2007) to end the challenge with a bang? We love this movie and have seen it at least a dozen times and even now I still find things that I have never seen before.  

#31nightsofhorrorchallenge Set on Halloween: Trick r Treat (2007).


Five interwoven stories that occur on the same block, on the same night. A couple finds what happens when they blow a jack o’ lantern out before midnight, a high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer, a college virgin might have met the right guy for her, a group of mean teens play a prank that they take too far, and a hermit is visited by a special trick or treater.

Our Thoughts on Trick r Treat

It looks amazing. From the opening titles, the beautiful flashback sequence, the stunning camera moves, and the creepy monsters, this all looks good. Some of the angles were amazing, and so was the movement. Subtle yet powerful sound design. This sounded amazing. A really good mix. Simple yet effective. This was well-paced. It was fast-moving with lots of twists. There was never a dull moment. It wasn’t that scary, and thankfully, it wasn’t that gory. It is just a well-made horror movie with thrills throughout. A good solid thrill ride with a fantastic pace. And who doesn’t love Sam?

The kid with the lollipop in his mouth, who peeks in on the girls in the changing rooms when they are trying on Halloween costumes is Quinn Lord who plays Sam throughout the rest of the movie.
