Who here remembers the 1986 metal-driven horror classic Trick or Treat starring Gene Simmons, Ozzy Osborne, and Skippy from “Family Ties”? Anyone? Pulse 2 and 3 director Joel Soisson remembers it well. In fact, he can’t forget it because … well … he was the writer/producer of it! There’s been bit of talk about a potential remake, and Soisson spoke a little about it today.
Moviehole caught up with Joel to get a quick update after one of their readers asked editor-in-chief Clint Morris if there was any news.
“I’m amazed how many contacts, emails and letters I get from that movie. More than all my other films combined,” Soisson tells the site. “At the time we all wrote it off as a fun little confection that wouldn’t be remembered past its first Halloween weekend. Strange business we’re in. So yeah, I am actually kind of interested in a remake. Problem is, like Bill and Ted which we made around the same time for DeLaurentiis Entertainment group, the rights have been sold and resold from that now defunct company to the point it would take the FBI to puzzle it out. But your reader has inspired me to try. Something in the headbanger’s eternal struggle still resonates.”
