Did You Know?


Shortly after the final cut of the film was edited and post-production complete, a lightning strike irreparably damaged the hard drive the final cut of the film was stored on, completely destroying the film. Director Michael Pleckaitis was forced to start from scratch and completely re-edit the film. The process was so time-consuming and frustrating, that he never wanted to direct make another film. As a result, he never made the planned third film in the "tree-logy" - "Trees 3: Regeneration". He took a three-year hiatus before beginning production on "Silent". See more »

Catacomb of Creepshows #12 (of 50) or playing the sap
25 September 2012 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Most of the main cast of the Jaws spoof "Trees" return for this sequel that adds Horshack to the mix. This time around the main villain are Christmas trees. This film, while having its moments comes nowhere near as good as the first film. It goes off on tangents fairly often and just isn't as funny. Whereas I found myself laughing or chuckling at a good 80% of the original, I managed to laugh less here, even though it was a bit of a longer movie. It's humorous but some of the sub-plots and even some characters could've been left on the cutting room floor without harming the film in the least bit. And those flashbacks could've been done away with to as long as I'm on the subject.
