From the deliciously dark imagination of creator Michael Dougherty (writer and director of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and the holiday horror hit, Krampus), Legendary Entertainment’s Trick ‘r Treat is a creepy, darkly comic celebration of the scariest night of the year. The critically acclaimed fan-favorite movie takes the Creepshow/Tales from the Crypt approach to nefarious new depths with four interwoven tales set on Halloween night: a high school principal (The Good Wife’s Dylan Baker) moonlights as a vicious serial killer; the quest of a young virgin (True Blood’s Anna Paquin) for that special someone takes a gruesome turn; a group of teens carry out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences; and a cantankerous old man (Succession’s Brian Cox) battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon. Trick ‘r Treat, released in 2009, has amassed a ravenous cult following and its iconic star, Sam, the mischievous spirit of Halloween who enforces the holiday’s ancient traditions, has become a perennial Halloween icon inspiring a still growing line of toys, comic books, costumes, holiday décor, and theme park attractions.
And, for fans wanting to delve deeper into the world of Trick ‘r Treat, Legendary Comics’ recently released a special omnibus of the comic book collection featuring the full compendium of twisted Halloween tales, now on sale in stores and online. The celebratory edition unites the past two previously released graphic novels for the first time ever and features a new special introduction from Dougherty.
