Ah yes, I've been meaning to watch this recently released trailer, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. So thanks for posting it, zombombie.
So... an anthology movie with stories about Halloween. It's hard not to draw comparisons to Trick 'r Treat
, a movie I have much love for. Michael Dougherty's 2007-made movie (can you believe Trick 'r Treat
is 8 years old already? Although it sat on the shelf for a while, and was actually released 6 years ago) had a lot going for it. There were only 4 main stories, with plenty of overlap and connecting characters (particularly Sam). It had horror elements, but with a tongue-in-cheek tone that made it feel fun. It really captured the feeling of Halloween.
Now... Tales of Halloween
. This has 10 stories. To squeeze in that many, will they have as much depth and development? Are they connected, or will it feel disjointed? Will it be "fun" or just typical scares and gore?
Hard to know at this point, but I'll gladly buy a ticket to this one. The world needs more movies that are specifically about our favorite holiday. Bring on the tales! I think I even spotted a zombie pumpkin chomping on someone's head in this trailer.
