Cult Classic Trick 'R Treat Is Getting Its First-Ever Theatrical Release This Halloween

Cult Classic Trick 'R Treat Is Getting Its First-Ever Theatrical Release This Halloween
"Trick 'r Treat" has hit milestones many horror movies don't even dream of in the 15 years since its festival release, playing hip film festivals, earning a comic book adaptation, and even inspiring a section of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights attraction. Yet somehow, the film has never gotten a proper theatrical release until now. This fall, Warner Brothers is set to remedy that. According to the official WB Classic Films Twitter, "Trick 'r Treat" will be playing in Regal Cinemas just in time for Halloween.

The theatrical announcement seems somewhat spontaneous today, as it seems a horror-loving Twitter user was among the first to pick up on the upcoming release. On Wednesday, Twitter user @dansferatu shared a post about Regal's October lineup, which in addition to "Trick 'R Treat" includes "The Lost Boys," "Scream 2," and "Halloween." WB Classic (@wbclassicfilms) then shared that user's tweet a day later with the caption,

How ‘Man in the High Castle’ Grapples With Its Frightening Real-World Relevance In Season 3

(Warning: Some mild spoilers for Season 3 of Amazon’s “Man in the High Castle”)

Eric Overmyer swears the third season of Amazon’s “Man in the High Castle” isn’t a response to Donald Trump.

“I banned the ‘T’ word in the writers room,” Overmyer, who took over as showrunner this year, told TheWrap. “I wanted to let the current situation resonate with the show by itself. I didn’t want it to dictate our narrative.”

But the real-world parallels of a show that not only imagines Nazi Germany’s victory in World War II — subjugating much of America in the process — but the spread of its fascist worldview, are hard to ignore. Put it his way: The tagline for this season is #ResistanceRises.

The Man in the High Castle Season 3 is One of Transition and Change

We're at a transitional phase in American history, and The Man in the High Castle is following suit.

Just as it has recently been difficult to watch programs such as the recently departed, award-winning The Americans, the science-fiction alternate reality of Colony, and the world we never want to become on Emmy-winning The Handmaid's Tale. The Man in the High Castle forces viewers to think.

In the alternate aftermath of World War II in which the Axis won dividing the United States into the Japanese Pacific States, the Neutral Zone, and Nazi America, it's not easy living for those now living in the territories. Even those fully converted with their oppressors struggle to accept what was with what is.

The Man in the High Castle Season 3 continues the exploration of that conflict as the series also moved head-first into more standard science fiction fare. It's unclear how fully immersed in

Here’s What We Learned About ‘The Man in the High Castle’ Season 3 at Comic-Con 2018

  • The Wrap
Amazon’s panel for “The Man in the High Castle” was full of intriguing tidbits about the upcoming third season, giving fans plenty of sci-fi weirdness to ponder while they wait for the show’s return on Oct. 5.

Amazon played fans a new clip from “deep, deep in Season 3” of the show, which takes place in a world where Nazi Germany has taken over much of the United States. The footage finds Alexa Davalos’ character Juliana Crain skulking around in an underground tunnel with her resistance allies, including new main cast member Jason O’Mara, adjacent to what appears to be some kind of Nazi facility. Meanwhile, U.S. Obergruppenführer John Smith (Rufus Sewell) is also in the facility, and a Nazi scientist is sort of vaguely explaining what this place is.

The gist is that the Nazis have built the tunnel around an “anomaly,” and they have a machine that interacts with it “perfectly.

‘The Man in the High Castle’ Season 2 Review: Amazon’s Normalized Nazi World Delves Deeper Into Dark Mythologies

‘The Man in the High Castle’ Season 2 Review: Amazon’s Normalized Nazi World Delves Deeper Into Dark Mythologies
[Mild spoilers for “High Castle” Season 1 below.]

The word “Nazi” is, on so many levels, an ugly one. The hard Z sound seems to match perfectly with what the word represents to us not just historically, but in the all-too-recent present. It’s a word that has a visceral impact, and that’s why its use on “The Man in the High Castle,” Amazon’s alternate-universe period drama, always brings with it a touch of horror, because it’s used casually in conversation. It’s not a slur. It’s a part of daily life.

‘The Man in the High Castle’ Season 2: Watch the First Two Minutes Now
Amazon’s Emmy Award-winning drama “The Man in the High Castle” envisions a world where the United States lost WWII, and Japan and Germany rule the country. Ahead of its Season 2 premiere, the streaming service released the first two minutes of the new episode, which shows student life in Nazi-ruled America.

The clip begins with Thomas (Quinn Lord), son of John Smith (Rufus Sewell) arriving to school. All seems normal as he walks through the hallways, enters his classroom, helps a buddy with a detail in early American history, and is then chosen to lead the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I swear I will observe the law, conscientiously fulfill my duties at home and school, be faithful and obedient, and pledge absolute allegiance until death to the leader of the Nazi Empire, Adolf Hitler,” the students recite.

How ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ Became the Newest, Most Unlikely, Halloween Tradition

The dream came true on October 28th, 2013 at Los Angeles’s Egyptian Theater, where the 2013 Beyond Fest was being held. Trick ‘r Treat (2007) was appropriately closing out the evening, but the viewing began with a Q&A session including director Michael Dougherty, producer Bryan Singer, actors Dylan Baker, Brian Cox, Quinn Lord, Jean-Luc Bilodeau and host Seth Green. While a reunion between these actors and filmmakers was special, the real magic came when Sam, the famous character/holiday mascot from Dougherty’s film, came on stage delivering a message for Dougherty to make a sequel, which was echoed by Legendary Pictures producer Thomas Tull. An already raucous crowd amplified their applause when a banner for Trick ‘r Treat 2 appeared on the screen behind the panel.

A Trick ‘r Treat sequel hasn’t been the only project on Dougherty’s mind since that night. His new film Krampus, another holiday-themed horror

‘Date and Switch’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Nicholas Braun, Hunter Cope, Dakota Johnson, Quinn Lord, Nick Offerman, Gary Cole, Megan Mullally, Darien Provost, Dustin Ybarra, Sarah Hyland, Larry Wilmore | Written by Alan Yang | Directed by Chris Nelson

When best friends Michael and Matty make a pact to lose their virginity before prom, a spanner is thrown in the works when Matty comes out as gay. Trying to work out their new situation, Michael makes it his life ambition to continue the pact no matter what. Together, they start on an adventure of calamity and hi-jinx as they try to find their place in the world, how their lives have changed because of it and who can they persuade to have sex with them before prom night is through.

Date and Switch definitely suffers from that classic ‘teenager romantic comedy’ syndrome where it is all about sex and, namely, having it before a certain time limit is up.

1) Writer/director Michael Dougherty’s original idea for the film was for it to be an anthology of stories that had no direct connections, tales that he envisioned would be directed by different horror filmmakers.

Beyond Fest: “Trick ‘r Treat” + “Trick ‘r Treat 2″ Announced

Beyond Fest: “Trick ‘r Treat” + “Trick ‘r Treat 2″ Announced
I’ll be honest. Trick ‘R Treat is a cult horror movie that completely passed me by. The film, cobbling together four short “tales of terror” into a cohesive horror anthology of yore, has been a favorite Halloween movie since it arrived in theatres in 2007.

It’s only risen in stature and popularity since, and it seemed like that groundswell movement reached its crescendo last night at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood for the finale of American Cinematheque and Amity’s Beyond Fest, one of the best film festivals in recent memory. The folks at Legendary teamed with the theatre to throw a bash, and provide a free screening for ardent fans of the picture. Tickets were snapped up within hours online, and the line to get in gave me a mini Comic-Con flashback. A lot of fervor for a Monday night screening, but I doubt anyone in the audience left disappointed.

Sam Will Return in Trick 'r Treat 2!
As we inch ever closer to Halloween, the treats have been coming in hot and heavy here in the horror community.  First we found out that Clive Barker would be writing Dimension's remake of Hellraiser, and then we learned that both Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi would be returning for Army of Darkness 2.  As exciting as those two tasty bit of news were, not even they can hold a candle to the announcement that was made last night...

‘Trick ‘R Treat 2′ is Officially Announced

Last night, Trick ‘r Treat showed as the closing night film of Beyond Fest in Los Angeles. The event was pretty well promoted and showed incredible support from Legendary Pictures which has now become a behemoth studio behind Nolan’s Batman films and more. They even provided a Livestream of the film and the Q&A after. However, there were some technical problems at the beginning which were resolved not too long into it. Sadly, I fell asleep due to me being old. I woke up this morning and found out that, as I predicted (seriously, not trying to be a douche) that Trick ‘r Treat 2 has been officially announced.

Luckily, Legendary published the Q&A on their YouTube channel, which I have included below. It’s about 18 minutes long. An unprepared Seth Green hosts the Q&A that has Quinn Lord (Sam), Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty, Bryan Singer,

Trick 'r Treat 2 Officially Coming Soon!

Trick 'r Treat 2 Officially Coming Soon!
At Monday night's special fan screening of the cult horror classic Trick 'r Treat hosted by Legendary, the film's iconic character, Sam, and director, Michael Dougherty, stole the show by announcing a sequel during the Q&A session. Other panel participants included two of the film's stars Dylan Baker and Brian Cox, as well as a surprise appearance by producer Bryan Singer.

Watch the entire panel below, moderated by Seth Green.

Director Michael Dougherty started the conversation by discussing how the idea for a sequel came about.

"It's funny because when I first dreamt up the idea of making the first film, I thought, "How neat would it be if we made them a series?" I'm a firm believer that October should be filled with Halloween movies, or horror movies. That's something I remember from childhood. Horror movies and Halloween, they go hand-in-hand. And so the idea was, "Well we
