Entertaining, but just okay.
18 October 2015 | by WildWombattSee all my reviews

I started watching this without any high expectations, and was only going off the other reviews. If this was compared to the Trick r' Treat movie, it would fall terribly short. Trick R' Treat had good tales/stories, and some were actually creepy. Tales of Halloween was cheesy the majority of the time, and you get the occasional chuckle here and there, but that's really it.

Of all the short stories, I only found one that was good and had a nice unsettling feeling to it. Don't get me wrong, the other stories were pretty decent, but a couple were downright ridiculous and seem to have no effort put into it.

This film was okay for what it is, and it's something fun to watch near or during Halloween; however, if I had to choose between watching and not watching, I wouldn't have watched it. It wasn't that good to waste and hour something on. I'd personally only recommend this film if you have nothing else to watch, because the negatives of this film were more numerous than the positives.
