Paramount to Get Fun Size

Paramount to Get Fun SizeTrick or treating has long been a Halloween tradition, and the beauty of the yearly holiday in general is that it can be hilarious, spooky, and fun all at the same time. And that’s exactly what Paramount in banking on for its new upcoming look at All Saints Day, Fun Size.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Paramount has picked up Fun Size, a comedy spec from “The Colbert Report” writer Max Werner that is being described as a cross between Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting that is set on Halloween.

I grew up on John Hughes films and miss those great character-based comedies that make you feel something. ‘Fun Size’ is about real characters who are smart, funny, and a little bit offbeat,” says Werner of the project.

We don’t know exactly how much horror will be making it in with the comedy just yet so this may be the last you hear of the movie around these parts, but we’ll keep our ears to the ground for you.

    I am a little excited for these, we all definitly need more fun halloween films, but they will never be as good as the greatest Halloween film and perhaps best horror movies of the last ten years known as “TRICK ‘R’ TREAT”…..fuck just typing the title of that film is exilarating

      James, Trick R Treat is the ultimate halloween movie. Even more so than Carpenter’s classic. It’s just… wow. I saw it twice last halloween and it was a euphoric experience both times.

        We were watching 300 today and the Trick r Treat trailer came on and my gf skipped it to get to the movie but I made her go back so I could watch it. The trailer alone is badass now I have to watch the movie again.

        “Trick R Treat” is okay… but I was not blown away by it! Certainly not enough to say it’s a must-see/must-rent/must-buy DVD (IMO).

          Blasphemy Pelusa. I would say it is an absolute must own for any hardcore horror fan and the commentary is a must listen. It will be a Halloween tradition for many from here on out I’m sure.

            Trick R Treat was really good, but I wouldn’t call it great. The first and third segments are underwhelming, but the second and fourth are unquestionably required Halloween viewing. One of the best horror films in a long time, but it’s still not a masterpiece.

    What adventures can you have trick or treating? Pedos, speeding cars, strange neighbors, gangs?
