Trick 'r Treat 2 still happening?
 
Over at Fear net, Sam has popped up in another pre-Halloween short.

Also on YouTube is a behind the scenes video, where Michael Doherty mentions (albeit briefly) a sequel. Sorry but I can't seem to link to it. It's there though :v)

Hopefully a well budgeted DTV could happen, especially after great reviews already coming in for the DTV Curse of Chucky!

It would be great to have another movie like this one for Halloween! And not only DTV but a standard release in cinemas. I fully enjoyed it!!

Dam I love Sam. We need another Trick' r Treat movie.

Erick H. 09-01-2013 09:14 AM

I thought the original was uneven but I loved Sam,I'd give it a shot.

TheButcher 09-02-2013 02:18 AM

The first one was great!

Warner Brothers screwed up not releasing that theatrically.

The original film did spend a lot of time trying to shoot a fan-loving Halloween movie... which is why it's kind of strange, not to mention SAVAGELY off-putting, that it's such a stupidly hateful movie. It seems to be trying to say Halloween is a vicious holiday and we've seen it get the soft touch too many times... Yeah, that's why we really need someone with no grasp of nuance, complexity, brutality (beyond the Cut + Paste new millennium garbage we see in every horror film of the last 10 years, what I'm saying is that they failed to inject their story or characters with the intensity they so desperately wanted, and needed because they put so much emphasis on it), intelligence, or subversion to give us a collection of sexist, ignorant, childish body-horror hijinks with superficial music video flair. It's another one of those movies where, if you're a smart person, every character is so lifeless, stupid, and aggressive that it makes you want to hurt the people who made the movie. I'm sorry, but everyone I've run into who praises this fails to actually address the characters and their role in the stories. The fans just go: it was a good idea. Um... the job of a movie is to take an idea and flesh it out. This does not happen in post production. It actually requires intelligent handling of worthwhile characters. They don't have to be smart, but they do have to be smart in their stupidity or hatefulness. This movie just throws shit onscreen.

And it's fucking incredibly offensive. If you paid attention. Though, nothing is more offensive than the idea that this is all the movies it rips off but, yeah, a brutal look at this overcommercialized, child-friendly holiday... Which has been fucking dying off as an American Tradition for YEARS before this movie was made... This is the final piece of evidence proving the makers of this film are completely beyond understanding. Every situation in this movie takes something we like about Halloween and perverts it to insult what we don't take seriously about it. By showing, let's cut the shit here: Sexy Chicks in Tight Costumes who at least get attention from everyone who wants to get drunk and get laid. This is made abundantly clear in monotonously sleazy scene after monotonously sleazy scene (and don't even get me started on the children!!!). This is their way to rebel against... CHARLIE BROWN?!?!?!? If you really aren't following me in the slightest right now, I would have to write a paper on the patronizing stupidity of that ambition. That legacy of Halloween is only alive in nostalgia, on the internet. On the fucking street: Halloween IS about people in slutty, tight costumes getting drunk, partying, and getting laid. That is like going into a high school cafeteria because you want to expose the potentially harmful (depending on what universe and time you're in) clique-mentality of high school, going right past the football player and cheerleader tables and starting a screaming match with the people at the "quote unquote" nerd table.

I was okay with the Charlie Brown bashing. Charlie Brown is an asshole.

DVD-fanatic-9 09-03-2013 07:51 AM

This movie is like a little kid in a sailor suit and bow on his head kicking you in the shins repeatedly while his prissy, pill-popping mother in designer business clothes laughs in amusement.

A) Neither of them are fit to be mocking or antagonizing anyone else.

B) Again, not fit to be accusing anyone else of being an asshole. No matter how you define the word.

What's to like about that?

DVDF9 will not rest until there is justice. Lucy, beware.

You know what? Filmmakers actually (in some cases) try to put thought and meaning into their films. Perhaps not so much in the 80's (always), but if you're denying that there is a method to TRT's nastiness and supporting the argument by many that horror is there for us to turn our brains off, that's ridiculous at best. When a filmmaker is as aggressive as Doherty has been with this film, he's inviting analysis.

Ever see the day all the comic strips played tribute to Charles Schultz after he passed away? Tank McNamara, the sports-oriented strip showed Lucy pulling the ball away. Then in the next panel, a group of huge football players pounce on her. Charlie never kicked the ball, but at least Lucy got flattened by some interior linemen
