Boring trash with no horror whatsoever., 30 October 2007
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

A female baby-sitter is watching a young prankster on Halloween night.The kid's dad is a murdering lunatic who just happens to break out of an asylum that very night.Gary Graver's "Trick or Treats" is a badly-lit and incredibly boring "Halloween" clone with almost no horror elements at all.The plot makes little sense and is filled with several disjointed and out-of-place situations.I have also seen Gary Graver's "Moon in Scorpio" and it was equally as bad and pointless.The utter lack of blood and gore is hard to forgive as is the lack of suspense and scares.Overall,"Trick or Treats" is a complete waste of time.Watch "Halloween" again and don't bother with this piece of cow dung.
