The legend of Halloween cult horror classic Trick ‘r Treat is about to reach another milestone. Legendary Pictures has partnered with Beyond Fest for a one-night only theatrical screening of the movie. But wait! There’s more…
Trick ‘r Treat, the directorial debut of Michael Dougherty that stars Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb, and Brian Cox, is screening at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California, on Monday, October 28th. It will be followed by a panel that will include Dougherty along with several members of the cast. Both the film and the panel will be live streamed nationally on Legendary’s Facebook page.
THE STORY OF TRICK ‘R TREAT
Although never released in theaters, Trick ‘r Treat became a cult classic through its release on DVD, digital platforms, and extensive play in festivals. Additionally, the film received rave reviews for its originality and ambition. The passage of time has not diminished the fan fervor for this horror classic, which continues to achieve a life of its own with each new technology but has never been seen in theaters – until now.
Dougherty’s story takes place in a small Ohio town on All Hallows’ Eve, where four interwoven tales – including a high school principal who moonlights as a vicious serial killer, a college-age virgin who’s saving herself for that special someone, a woman whose hatred of Halloween is only exceeded by her husband’s love of the mischievous holiday, and a callous group of teens who carry out an unforgivably cruel prank – deliver the kind of chills that can only occur on the darkest day of the year.
If you’re in the LA area, this is one event not to be missed! For more info on the fest itself, visit the official Beyond Fest website. For the rest of you, again, be sure to visit Legendary’s Facebook page for the live stream on October 28th.
