when my co-worker raved about this movie, i knew i had to see it as soon as possible!  i was blown away buy this clever halloween film:

It is said that Halloween is the night when the dead rise to walk among us and other unspeakable things roam free. The rituals of All Hallows Eve were devised to protect us from their evil mischief, and one small town is about to be taught a terrifying lesson that some traditions are best not forgotten. Nothing is what it seems when a suburban couple learns the dangers of blowing out a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight; four women cross paths with a costumed stalker at a local festival; a group of pranksters goes too far and discovers the horrifying truth buried in a local legend; and a cantankerous old hermit is visited by a strange trick-or-treater with a few bones to pick. Costumes and candy, ghouls and goblins, monsters and mayhem… the tricks and treats of Halloween turn deadly as strange creatures of every variety-human and otherwise-try to survive the scariest night of the year.

the interwoven stories seem unrelated in the beginning.  then they all fell into place like a giant puzzle.  it was a brilliant.  i enjoyed the diversity of kills in this movie.  the stories were all different yet connected.  Anna Paquin‘s all female gang and their end scene was on of my favorite parts of the movie.  it was a total WTF?!? moment that had you hooting and hollering!  this movie blended together well, it kept me interested and anxious for the next scene.  it is one of the best current halloween movies i have seen in a long time.  Trick ‘r Treat is a MUST SEE!

I liked this movie too, but felt it was too short. Because of its short length I didn’t get to attach myself to the characters, which would have made this movie even better.

And the little demon trick ‘r’ treater is one of the coolest halloween horror characters I’ve seen in years.
