If you've already seen a film three times and you still give it a thumbs down, then I wouldn't bother with a fourth. You're better off watching something else.
It's not that i hate the film i just don't get what the big deal is, much like the way i feel about cabin in the woods. Also the fact that Trick r Treat is more of a cohesive story doesn't matter to me. What matters to me is that i feel both V/H/S and the Theatre Bizarre have at least three segments each that are more enjoyable to me then any segment of Trick r Treat. They do feel like a collection of short films, you guys are right but that doesn't take away from my enjoyment at all. Being cleverly put together or being self referential isn't anywhere near the top of my check list when it comes to horror. Take at look at the best horror films of all time, barley any are known for those traits. As for MOH I don't mind at all that they threw in excess gore or went over the top, it was all part of the fun.
