Halloween horror fans are revisiting a spookily underrated classic

Halloween horror fans are revisiting a spookily underrated classic

This is going on our watch list.

Halloween is just around the corner, which means loads of scary movie nights.

There are so many spooky films to choose from, but horror fans are revisiting one particular classic from 2007.

You can watch the trailer for the movie below:

Trick 'r Treat was released 15 years ago, but people are still loving it - and some are even calling for a sequel.

The horror tells the story of five interwoven stories on Halloween which all take place in the same town. They focus on a high school principal who is actually a serial killer; a college student looking for love; a woman who hates dressing up for Halloween, but whose husband is obsessed with the festivities; a grumpy Halloween-hating neighbour under siege; and a group of teenagers pulling pranks.

As the evening unfolds, the town must do everything they can to survive the night. The movie starred Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Rochelle Aytes, Brian Cox and Leslie Bibb.

Although the film was released years ago, it's still a firm favourite for many on Halloween movie nights.

One person wrote on Twitter: "I've been watching horror movies all night long, Thirteen Ghosts, House on Haunted Hill, Return to House on Haunted Hill, Trick 'r Treat, etc."

While another said: "One of the modern horror masterpieces that gets everything right! Perfect horror flick that doesn't aim to terrify or disturb. I had a blast of spooky fun and it's one of my all-time favourite films."

And a third added: "I love watching some of the classics that may not be as popular as others like Cabin in the Woods, Killer Clowns from Space, Trick 'r Treat."

Others are still hung up on the fact that the movie never got a sequel, with one adding: "One of the greatest travesties the world has ever know is that Trick ‘r Treat never got a sequel."

While another said: "A Trick r Treat sequel is long overdue."

Well, it looks like fans hungry for more Trick 'r Treat may be in luck.

The movie focuses on five interwoven stories.

During a Beyond Fest screening of the OG horror movie earlier this month, creator Michael Dougherty revealed a sequel is in 'active development'.

While the movie hasn't been given the green light yet, it's certainly the closest we've come to a second instalment.

If you're looking for other scary films to watch this Halloween, we recently told you how Host has been named the scariest movie, according to science.

The horror flick, from British director Rob Savage, was made during the Covid-19 pandemic and filmed through Zoom video calls. It tells the story of a group of six friends who take part in a virtual séance.

The synopsis explains: “Six friends hire a medium to hold a séance via Zoom during lockdown, but they get far more than they bargained for as things quickly go wrong.

"When an evil spirit starts invading their homes, they begin to realise they might not survive the night.”
