While John Carpenter's Halloween holds the title for creepiness i slasher films, Trick R Treat went for old-school mindless fun that goes for the lore of Halloween. Since there's barely any celebrant in my country, here's what I learn from watching Trick R Treat that I believe will come in handy one day...
a. Jack-O-Lanterns ward off evil spirits, except the Spirit of Halloween himself, very effectively.
b. cheap masks never looked so good
c. Little Red Riding Hood will always be hot no matter who's under the hood
d. You can be a loving dad AND be a serial killer.
e. Murder is a wonderful Father and Son past time
f. Werewolves transform by ripping off their skins
g. Halloween is serious order in other countries (and I'm envious)
h. Halloween is great for murdering people, cuz no one can tell
i. Razor-bladed candies. They're the best kind of weapon there is.
j. Sam is the Spirit of Halloween, and it should be made official.
