For fans of “Creepshow” and “Tales of the Crypt” I present to you “Trick ‘r Treat”, the 2007 film written and directed by Michael Dougherty.

Not since “Creepshow” and “Crypt” have audiences been treated to such a delightfully tangled web of macabre, hilarious and terrifying tales as awaits you with “Trick ‘r Treat”.  Teeming with all of the ambiance and atmosphere as Halloween night, itself, “Trick ‘r Treat” features standout performances from Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Quinn Lord (Sam) and Lauren Lee Smith amid a massive cast.

Michael Dougherty uses the character of “Sam” to add cohesion to the anthology, and to great effect.  “Sack boy” or “Samhian” is part peeping tom, part demon and while you may find yourself wanting to see what’s under the hood as the movie unfolds, think twice.

With stories ranging from a tragic mishap resulting from a cruel prank, a virgin’s quest to find her special “first”, a homicidal school principal with more secrets buried in his backyard than a dog has bones, and the consequences when you forget to hand out candy on Halloween, “Trick ‘r Treat” truly feels as though it has been penned by multiple writers.  Talented ones, at that.  In a world where some writers can barely push out one decent tale (Michael J. Basset, I’m looking at you) Michael Dougherty manages to bring us fresh, unique tales of terror at every turn, weaving them together with the central Sam character as sole witness.

One last thing.  Anna?  Anna Paquin?  I don’t know how you do it, but at some point you will need to start aging.  The fact that you starred, yet again, as a high school student in this year’s drama “Margaret” is only starting to confuse the viewers of “True Blood”.
