    Movies: Trick 'r Treat

    One of the most talked about films this Hallowe'en season has been Trick 'r Treat, a horror film following four separate plots which link together in interesting ways.

    The film was originally slated for an October 2007 release, but was pushed back.  It was only just release this year in October.  It might be that the film isn't as marketable as other horror films.  It doesn't have a killer that young teens or twenty somethings are trying to escape, and it doesn't follow the recent trend of torture horror that seems very popular.  It also doesn't have a lot of star power behind it, with Anna Paquin being the most well known actor in the film.  Whatever the reason, it may actually benefit from not having a theatrical release.

    I think the film is best viewed with a group of friends in the comfort of your own home.  People will want to chat with each other about a particular story, or pause and rewind certain scenes, and just have a good time without being stuck in a theatre seat.

    If you're looking for a fun horror film, that keeps you laughing and takes your on a wild ride, check out Trick 'r Treat.  I give it 4 / 5.
