Trick ‘r Treat

Trick r Treat 2

Sam is coming back. At a screening of Trick ‘r Treat last night, director Michael Dougherty and the film’s patchwork trickster announced that they were planning a sequel through Legendary. Considering the production company’s split from Warners (and the shelf the studio forced the first film onto for years), it’s a good assumption that Warners won’t be involved. Although there are no details (and no script) currently, Dougherty claimed that the new anthology would move beyond the werewolves, zombies and vampires of the first to explore new stuff that goes bump on Halloween night. Trick ‘r Treat 2 is very, very welcome news as the first was a fun rarity in the October landscape. If it can maintain the caliber of the stories and the joyful tone of bloodlust, a new installment would be an excellent new tradition. At the very least it would offer more variety than the same house fully of cabinets opening themselves. [Legendary]
