Day 11 Movie: Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
Tonight’s movie is a hidden gem that I saw the previews to when I went to see Rob Zombie’s release of the horror epic, Halloween. I was so excited to see this in the theaters but it never made it.
Plot: Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.
One of the stories features HBO’s True Blood vampire series vixen, Anna Paquin as she plays (a very hot) Little Red Riding Hood and turns into, well, a werewolf.
Of course everyone’s favorite character is Sam the little goblin monster in the feety pajama’s with the flap in the back.
If you like scary flicks that aren’t just the typical slasher films you will love Trick r’ Treat!
What is your favorite scary and/or Halloween movie? I would love to hear from you!
