Trivia

Outside the movie theater, Talbot gives Troy a mask and tells him all the kids get one. This is an inside joke/reference to Halloween 3 : Season of the Witch where Talbot, played by Tom Atkins starred as the main Protagonist. Halloween 3's story line revolved around halloween masks that would kill the children wearing them. See more »

Acceptable Halloween Slice and Dicer
12 January 2020 | by carolinephillips-47427See all my reviews

Trick won't win any awards anytime soon, but it's far from the disaster many people have been making it out to be. I walked in expecting the worst, but the first 20 minutes genuinely gripped me and even made me jump once. As the film continues, it mostly becomes a Dr. Loomis vs. Michael Myers storyline with Omar Epps' frazzled detective trying to make sense of how a seemingly normal teenage male could survive a few gunshots and a fall off a hospital roof and still continue to kill people every Halloween for a number of years. Could it be a copycat killer? You'll have to stick with Trick to find out and, once you do, you'll most likely be let down.

While most of the film plays out like a supernatural-tinged slasher, the last 15 minutes of the movie, where the film finally reveals what's really been going on, is likely to inspire many groans and rolling eyes. There's a piece of an interesting idea in there, but it's not as well-executed as it could have been. There's a final twist at the end that's really a groaner and makes no sense whatsoever.

The acting is at least passable for most of the film and it's nice to see genre icon Tom Atkins getting something to do every now and then. It also might be one of the better of the recent "the corpses in this haunted house are real" movies that seem to be coming out all the time. There's some good suspense here and there, too, so Trick is far from a complete waste of time.
