Trick ‘r Treat Direct to DVD?

Trick 'r Treat getting straight to DVD treatment?While I hope this turns out to be just a rumor, unfortunately there’s too much validity in it to ignore. The STYD guys heard from one of their readers today that, since Warner Bros. have no plans to release Mike Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat in theaters, there’s a good chance we’ll only be seeing it on DVD.

When I asked our Warner Bros rep flat-out if they’d be releasing this, their reply was simply “no” … but that doesn’t mean that Warner Home Video won’t be putting it out, does it? Given Warner’s newfound success with the Raw Feed line and other direct-to-DVD titles, this really wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

But as of now, nothing is confirmed one way or another. Getting a straight answer of anyone that has anything to do with Trick ‘r Treatis akin to pulling the teeth out of a horny alligator, so we’ll just keep reporting what we hear and hope that something sticks eventually and we actually get to see this damn thing!

    I’ll totally buy this on DVD when it comes out, and I’ll encourage my horror loving friends to buy it too.

    …Hopefully, it doesn’t suck. 😀

    Damn. I was really looking forward to seeing this one in the theater.

    On the other hand, this could be saying volumes about the movie’s quality. For better or worse, most of the best stuff seems to be going the direct to DVD route.

    I saw this coming a mile away. I’ll see it anyway. It looks great.

    Direct-to-Disc, theatrical release, or shoved up my ass frame by frame – as long as it’s released!

    The constant delay and evasiveness really makes me wonder if studio politics ala ‘Midnight Meat Train’ is at work.
