I FREAKING LOVE HALLOWEEN. The spirit of the holiday season is amazing and it’s not just because the female species feels that it is necessary to dress slutty 78% of the time. The horror movies, the candy, the parties, the atmosphere, the eeriness of it all to be celebrating the dead – or undead – I LOVE IT ALL. And what better way to celebrate All-Hallows-Eve then to have a 24-hour Trick ‘r Treat marathon. But before we partake in this amazing movie marathon, we must first carefully follow the rules of Halloween provided by FEARnet. Check out four-amazingly well-done PSAs of Halloween after the jump.
If you’ve never seen Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat before then you have been missing out on one of the greatest seasonal films ever created. If you are too eager to check it out, I suggest you watch it on Netflix Instant, RIGHT NOW! But if you are looking to host a Halloween party on October 31st, then perhaps you should turn to FEARnet as your prime source of shrieks as they host a 24-hour marathon of Trick ‘r Treat.
Official synopsis of Trick ‘r Treat via FEARnet:
- Trick ‘r Treat is a collection of creepy stories that mixes fun with fear, candy with poison, and laughter with screams. In the tradition of Creepshow and Tales From the Crypt comes four interwoven tales set on Halloween night: a high-school principal who moonlights as a vicious serial killer, a young virgin whose quest for that special someone takes a gruesome turn, a group of teens who carry out a cruel prank with disastrous consequences, and a cantankerous old man who battles a mischievous trick-or-treating demon.
About the director, Michael Dougherty:
- Michael Dougherty is an artist, writer and director making a name for himself in a diverse range of genres. He most recently wrote and directed the horror anthology Trick ‘r Treat, starring Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Lesilie Bibb, and Dylan Baker which was produced by Bryan Singer, Legendary pictures and Warner Bros. Previously Dougherty and sometimes writing partner Dan Harris co-wrote the blockbuster Superman Returns (2006) and X2: X-Men United (2003), both directed by Bryan Singer.
Trust me, this movie is all that and a bag of chips. The “Rules of Halloween” that were created based on the movie Trick ‘r Treat get me all fired up for this weekend and I hope there are a few more before Monday. Directed by Zach Shields, these PSAs guarantee your safety as long as you follow the rules this Halloween. All of the music provided for the videos are by Chromatics, “Dagger Moon.” Check out FEARnet for all of your Trick ‘r Treat behind the scenes and goodies before the 24-hour marathon!
Rule #2- No one likes pennies or floss, always pass out treats.
Rule #3- Don’t ever blow out a jack o’lantern or he’ll come for you.
Rule #4- Taking candy from strangers comes with a risk.<
