After a long wait, fans of the Halloween horror anthology Trick ‘r Treat can rejoice as a sequel is finally in the works. Director Michael Dougherty made the exciting announcement during a screening of the original film at Beyond Fest. Trick ‘r Treat has gained a growing fan base over the years, and now it seems that the much-anticipated Trick ‘r Treat 2 is actively being developed. Horror enthusiasts can look forward to more spooky tales and thrills in the continuation of this beloved anthology series.
Michael Dougherty, the creator of Trick ‘r Treat, is collaborating with Legendary Entertainment on the sequel. While Dougherty clarified that the film has not yet been officially approved for production (not greenlit), he emphasized that it is currently undergoing significant development. This indicates that the project is actively progressing and being worked on with dedication.
There have been previous announcements about Trick ‘r Treat 2 in the past, but this time there is optimism that progress will be made. We’ll continue to provide updates as we gather more information about the sequel.
In exciting news, Trick ‘r Treat will be available for screening in Regal theaters on October 6, allowing fans to enjoy the 2009 film once again. Additionally, select AMC Theatres locations will feature the film starting from October 21, giving audiences the opportunity to experience the iconic character Sam on the big screen.
These new screenings are a significant milestone for Trick ‘r Treat as it marks the first time the film has received a wide theatrical release. Fans will have the chance to watch the movie in theaters on a broader scale, enhancing the overall cinematic experience.
Trick ‘r Treat tells five interconnected stories that take place on Halloween. Each story explores different characters and events that unfold during the spooky holiday, creating a tapestry of Halloween-themed tales.
Sure, here’s a paraphrase of the quote using simpler words:
“A normal high school principal has a secret life where he kills people one by one; a young person who has never had sex may have found the right person for them; a group of young people play a mean trick on someone; a woman who doesn’t like the night has to deal with her husband who loves holidays too much; and a grumpy old man meets his match with a mischievous supernatural creature named Sam.”
