||Dougherty has been trying to get this film off of his artwork and into theaters for a long, long time now... it was worth the wait. The best way to describe Trick R' Treat is that it reminds me of a live-action NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, or a film that takes place in the same world. The character designs are colorful, unique and completely unnerving, especially the final 'creature' who torments the old man. The gorgeous set design only added to the atmosphere of the film, really bringing this artists vision to life. Welcome to Michael Dougherty's world... Trick R' Treat is F-U-N. It's a trip back to the '80s when the goal was to excite and entertain, not torment you. Dougherty's film is the type of movie you can bring anyone to, whether it's a date or your kid. It's not overly violent or too funny, it's as Goldie Locks says "just right!" This is the type of film that will ensure you forget about all your worries and will captivate you until the very end (maybe even bring back the spirit of the holiday, which feels long lost).
