Trick ‘r Treat, a 2007 film starring Anna Paquin, is a personal favorite of mine. It’s got a little bit some something for everyone. The film weaves five different stories together. One centers on Anna Paquin’s character: a college virgin who may have finally met the right guy for her. Another features a group of middle schoolers who take a prank way too far. The next is about a high school principle cum serial killer. One tells the story of a young couple: one who loves Halloween and the other who hates it. And the last story is about a recluse who gets a surprise from a very interesting trick or treater. Do not be fooled by my mild summary—this film packs several spooky punches! It may not be a classic slasher film (those will come later, don’t worry) but it is certain to be a Halloween staple for years to come!
