The Halloween-themed film “Trick ‘r Treat” will premiere in theatres this year
Sam is prowling the area with a lollipop he has honed to a point, so stock up. Yes, the 2007 slasher classic Trick ‘r Treat is making a return to theaters this Halloween, just in time for the scariest time of the year. Beginning at the start of October, the picture will return to select theaters for a limited run. Fifteen years after its initial release, the picture is finally getting a wide theater distribution.
Although Trick ‘r Treat was first made available on home video in 2007, it has now become an annual staple for many families on Halloween and among horror film enthusiasts. The film has an impressive list of A-listers and an original story structure that weaves together multiple stories. The film follows a group of misfortunate partygoers on what could be the scariest night of the year as they spend it in the imaginary town of Warren Valley, Ohio. This Halloween classic features a haunting bus driver, serial killers, and werewolves, and will be even scary on the biggest screen you can find.
Sam, the sack-clad monster with a pumpkin for a head, is probably the most recognizable character in the film since he has a penchant for killing those who disobey Halloween customs by, for example, putting away decorations too soon or not giving out candy to trick-or-treaters. Sam’s likeness has come to represent Halloween itself, which has led to the popularity of Sam-themed merchandise like as costumes and figurines. Compared to Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees, he is widely regarded as one of the more endearing figures of the horror fandom.
Along with the news, a trailer for the film, entitled “Trick ‘r Treat,” was released, offering viewers a taste of the film’s nostalgic and cheesy horror atmosphere, as well as their first good look at Sam.
