What is it?
The 2007 American anthology horror comedy movie Trick ‘R Treat by Michael Dougherty.
What is it about?
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:
Prolific director Bryan Singer takes a turn towards horror as the producer of this Halloween shocker directed by X2 and Superman Returns screenwriter Mike Dougherty.
With four interwoven tales concerning a high-school principal who moonlights as a vicious serial killer, a college-age virgin who’s saving herself for that special someone, a woman whose hatred of Halloween is only exceeded by her husband’s love of the mischievous holiday, and a callous group of teens who carry out an unforgivably cruel prank, this fall frightener mixes Tarantino-style storytelling with the kind of chills that can only occur on the darkest day of the year.
Brian Cox, Anna Paquin, Dylan Baker, and Leslie Bibb all star in a Halloween treat that’s sure to deliver a few nasty tricks.

This was my first time watching this movie, my brother GC had seen it before and had mentioned it to me before, and recently Chris Stuckmann and his wife made a video about it so my brother GC suggested that we watch it so we did.
This movie surprised me because it held up well and looks like it could have been made today, it is well-directed, it actually manages to play around with time in a way that works, there are some twists, and it is one of the best Halloween movies that I have seen.

Good to hear that the writer of X2 is a capable director too. Horror isn’t usually my thing, but I do like some horror comedies such as Shaun of the Dead.

Hello The Otaku Judge,
Yeah, it is not usually my thing either, and so I have not seen that many or liked that many but some surprised me like The Shining and the V/H/S movies and the first Silent Hill movie and a few others.
I saw Shaun Of The Dead years ago with at least one of my brothers, probably in a movie theater when it came out, but oddly I can not remember how I felt about it and I barely remember much about it.
Thank you for commenting,
