Horror Movie A Day Review - Trick 'r Treat


Like all anthology films, some stories are better than others, but what's great about Treat is how it unfolds. Unlike Creepshow or whatever, we don't get a self-contained story, and then another, and then another... this one unfolds more like Pulp Fiction, where characters from stories A and B drift into stories C and D, and the chronological order is different from the order we see it. It's always fun to see the subtle nods to other stories (Lesley Bibb's character manages to be in every story, if only for a second or two), and it gives the film a sense of involvement that is hardly ever present in an anthology. Admit it; sometimes when you watch Creepshow you skip over Jordy Verrill, right? You can't do that here.
