October has finally arrived, and I can honestly say that it is my favorite month of the year. Pumpkins, Colorful Leaves, Sweatpants and Horror Movies. How could I not love the month of October?
Every day for the rest of the month, I will be watching and discussing a Horror/Thriller film that I feel truly set a perfect buildup for the very special day on the 31st of the month. Funny thing, I didn’t actually get into horror movies until I went to college. I would see them listed on TV and quickly scroll past them, not even giving it a second thought. I could barely get through Disturbia without hiding underneath my covers.
Today’s film was actually the very first one that really made me get into the world of horror. That film, was Trick R’ Treat.
It took me a couple of tries of watching it before I could finally tell everyone what the film was actually about. Essentially, it takes four different Halloween horror stories with a common element and puts them all in the movie together. That common element, is Sam, who you probably recongize from the iconic orange footie pajamas and burlap sack. The character appears throughout the film, and kills those who do not honor the Halloween traditions. So make sure you have your costumes picked out this year.
Although there have been talks about a sequel for quite some time, none have yet come to surface. However if you are looking for Sam, you can find him in his own Horror Zone at Universal Studios Horror Nights!
