FEARnet Brings Trick 'r Treat's Sam Home for the Holidays
Who better to spread some holiday fear than the devilishly cute Sam from the Trick 'r Treat flick? That's exactly what happens in this latest sliver of yuletide terror courtesy of the good folks over at FEARnet. Dig it!
FEARnet, the cable industry’s premier genre network, is giving its audience an early Christmas present today when it begins airing a specially produced ‘holiday-themed’ interstitial by Trick ‘r Treat’s writer/director Mike Dougherty and Zach Shields (Dead Man’s Bones.) The interstitial stars the Trick ‘r Treat cuddly pumpkin-filled character Sam, who not into mischief not only on Halloween but during Christmastime, too.
Sam doesn’t act alone in this festive interstitial but has the help of a little girl in creating snowmen of all shapes and sizes. In true horror fashion, these Sam-created snowmen are just that…real men (victims) encased in snow!
“This interstitial is our way at FEARnet to wish our audience a Happy Holidays,” said Sarah Shannon, Director of Programming, FEARnet. “Michael and Zach both captured the true spirit of Christmas in this production, and we love that at the end they remind us that FEARnet’s Trick ‘r Treat 24-hour Halloween marathon is only 10 months away!”
The incredible Trick 'r Treat (Blu-ray / DVD review here) is available now. Do yourself a favor. If you haven't seen it, GET IT. If you have? Fuck it! Watch it again!
A creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year with five tales set on Halloween night: suburban couple learns the lessons of blowing out a jack-o-lantern before midnight; a high school principal moonlights as a serial killer; the quest of a young virgin for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carries out a cruel prank; and a cantankerous old man battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.
